I agree with you. I can't justify spending $100+ on a laser sight. Plus I think it kind of takes away from the sport...I guess if your a tournament shooter that needs every fish you can get them maybe. But I like the challenge of judging the depth and diffraction, the laser sight takes that all away.
To me it seems like a waste of money. Never shot with one though, but I did talk to alot of people with them. They seem to believe it helps them. Personally I would rather use the money and buy more arrows or something. You also have to sight it in for the depth your shooting in. I have grown to love the challenge of shooting instinctively (no sights at all) and after alittle practice Im shooting about 50%. Could be shooting higher but I love shooting at wakes too much
