I personally haven't used either of these sights, but after looking them up that Redzone seems pretty cool... That cover that changes colors to allow more or less light into the fibers is a pretty sweet feature... Looks nice to me but again, I havent touched either...

I've heard good things about the blackgold but haven't tried either.

I have copperjohn on my bow now but personally really think the Spott Hogg is the most robust sight of all. I had the Hunter Hogg it in my old bow and kind a wished I put a new Spott Hogg on my new bow.

If I had it all to do over again I would go with a Spott Hogg. They will take a beating that would leave most other sights in peices.

I'm not sure it will matter all that much. Either site should work sufficient. Just make sure it is made of metal. When I first started bowhunting I had a cheap Tru Glo That had plastic pins and plastic cover. The first time I dropped my bow they all broke. I would go with which ever has the brightest sight pins. Unless your state allows a light on your site. Which if they do you might look for that option on your sight.
