Bow Sight Decision #archery

First off I’m really not trying to start a "best" bow sight debate. I know there is plenty of those already. I’m looking more for just some advice for my specific situation considering price, features and long term use on a few sights(but open to other sight suggestions as well). I’m just getting back into archery mostly for the sake of more hunting opportunity. Target shooting will solely be for practice and fun for me, no competing. I live in a mountainous area so steep angled shots are definitely a possibility and depending on skill I could see shot ranges varying from 0-60 yards. The three sights I’m looking at are the TRUGLO Carbon XS Xtreme 5 pin($ 35), Trophy Ridge Fix 5 pin($ 64) and the Viper Archery Venom XL 5 pin($ 100).

The things I care about are reliability, pin visibility, accuracy and I’d prefer not to have too much weight for the sake of balance.

The TRUGLO has no axis adjustment, but seems to be very highly regarded as a solid, lightweight, basic sight if you don’t need extra adjustment.

The fix has micro adjustment and 2nd axis adjustment as well as some other cool little features, but its almost twice as heavy as the other two sights.

The venom is very light and simple, but seems super durable and is also the only one with both second and third axis adjustment.

So basically I’m wondering if the extra features(micro, 2nd axis, 3rd axis, cnc construction, etc) are worth the extra $ 30-65. I am a college student on a tight budget, but I do realize I’ll spend more buying multiple inadequate sights rather than one good one upfront. I would say $ 100 is about my max and that’s honestly a stretch for me at the moment.
