1 | TRUGLO Carbon Hybrid 5-Pin Sight
This is TRUGLO’s bread and butter. It's been in the sight business for a long time, and products reflect it — they’re more than worth their price tag. The coolest thing about this one? It’s a carbon/aluminum hybrid that’s lightweight and significantly reduces vibration. It has a micro-adjustable design and longer fibers for better visibility when looking through your peep under lower light conditions. Realtree Xtra is the color it comes in.

2 | TRUGLO Hyper Strike 5-Pin Sight
Most bowhunters prefer a 5-pin sight. It’s the most commonly sought-after option on the market. That’s one reason the Hyper Strike 5-Pin Sight has been a hit from the start. Why else? It was constructed from lightweight carbon-composite and aluminum. It features micro-adjustable windage and elevation and even 2nd and 3rd axis adjustable level. Furthermore, it has extra long fibers for increased brightness. It comes in Realtree Xtra.

3 | Sword Sights Twighlight Hunter
You may not have heard of Sword Sights, or you might have. Either way, they have an interesting new sight called the Twighlight Hunter. Its small frame — two inches in diameter — makes it lighter than many competitor’s models. It has five pins that come in .010, .019, or .029 options. And they come in Realtree and are made in America. Can't beat that.

4 | Fuse Blade 4-Arrow Quiver
The Fuse Blade four-arrow quiver is everything you’d need for most hunts. It’s lightweight and attaches and detaches quickly from your bow. It’s a solid option for most setups. It comes in Realtree Xtra.

5 | Fuse Blade 6-Arrow Quiver
The Fuse Blade six-arrow model is the big brother to the four-arrow quiver. They both feature machined aluminum construction and the quick-detach mounting system. The best part of it all — this is a quiver that does what it’s supposed to — keep arrows from falling out. Pictured here is the black option, but it also comes in Realtree Xtra.

6 | Limbsaver Silent Quiver
Limbsaver is an iconic brand. It carries with it a legacy of producing quality products. The Silent Quiver upholds that legacy, and extends it. Its new hood features fiber optic material that will help you see your broadheads in lower light conditions easier. This quiver is made out of NAVCOM material, making it much quieter than other quivers on the market. Lastly, its very universal design accommodates most of the arrows and broadheads on the market. You can purchase this in Realtree Xtra Green, Max-1, and APG.

7 | Treelimb Quiver
The new Treelimb quiver is far and away one of my favorite new quivers currently on the market. Its simple, yet genius design makes it lightweight and stout as an ox. It only holds three arrows, but as I’ve always said, if you need more than one, go home. This quiver gets nothing but five stars. A great product. And it comes in Realtree MAX-5 to boot. How cool is that?

10 | APEX Gear Outpost Dual Stabilizer Mount with Sling
The new Outpost by APEX Gear doubles as a stabilizer and sling. It’s a little different in design than most stabilizers, but it’s just unique enough that it’s turning some heads at the ATA Show. The way it’s designed allows you to add another stabilizer to it if you want to.

11 | Fuse Carbon Torch FX
Fuse makes solid products year in and year out. The new Carbon Torch FX is no different. It’s custom rubber front dampener greatly reduces noise and the Stealth Disc Technology helps, too.
