Default Bow mounted lights

Whatís up everyone. Long time reader first time posting. Iím looking into purchasing a bow mounted light for some pig hunting. Been looking around and there seems to be a lot of companies making these lights. Looking for something in the 100$-150$ price range. Anyone have any positive recommendations?

My favorite is the Sniper. They are a sponsor on here and are good people to deal with.

I have the elusive wildlife, but I would look hard at the sniper

I'm ready to try one too but in the past, using rifle-mounted lights, the hogs scattered when the light hit their eyes, regardless of direction and speed.

You can buy a cap that slowly turns the light on or your can point it up in the sky and slowly bring it down on target.
It's not the light the spooks then it's their shadows moving.
