Default Sniper hog lights?

Just curious if any one here has used any products from sniper hog. I see theyíre in Texas so thatís a plus. Iíve had sniper hog, coyote reaper, and cyclops vb250 recommended to me. I like to get some good reviews before I spend 200+


Thanks in advance!!

Also pretty new to night time predator hunting so I’m open to suggestions and tips as well! Not really wanting to go with night vision, I want to be able to move the light from rifle to rifle as well as to my bow. I’m in the south Texas area.

Go with Sniper. You will not be disappointed with them. I had one of their lights for years before it got dropped in the lake. I'll be buying another one real soon.

I have 3 of them
38 LRX for my bow
66 LRX for my rifle
Coyote Cannon - cause I can :-)

I like the Red bulbs and 840NM IR bulb for my Digital Night Vision.

I had the Coyote Reaper light. It was ok as a first light. I got a bit of extra money couple years ago and bought the 66LRX and it blew the Reaper out of the water.
The Sniper Hawg light doesn't have the Halo and is a sharper and crisper light.

I used to do a lot of night hunting. I used a Vortex Viper HST 6-24X50 and I have the 66LRX mounted to that. Shot multiple hogs and Coyote.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to go with the 66LRX. Thanks for the feedback!

Has any one mounted the 66 on a bow? Or would it be wise to get the 38 or 55 for running on the bow? Also do they all take the same LED module??

You can mount the 66LRX to the bow but I don't recommend it, I recommend our 38LRX for bows. You can convert the 66LRX to our 38LRX by simply buying the 38LRX head, then simply unscrew the 66LRX head and then screw on the 38LRX head and you now have a 38LRX light. All our 38LRX, 50LRX and 66LRX lights are exactly the same except for the head so they are all interchangeable with each other including the LED modules. Also we give a 10% discount to all TBH members, just send me a PM asking for the coupon code and I will send you the 10% off coupon code.

Well Iím gonna have to take you up on that offer! Greatly appreciated, because Iíve already got it in my head that Iím more than likely gonna order two light packages. Just havenít decided on which ones yet. The 66LRX rifle package for sure but debating on the second.

I love my sniper hog. Rugged design, light enough to use all night, and the customer service is excellent. I have had mine for 3 seasons, and have had zero problems out of it.

Wish I would have known that. I just ordered the 66LRX about 3 weeks ago and I will tell you it is Bad to the Bone would not have or try any thing else. Love it.

I also got the red & green bulbs and love them both. Now I wish would have also got the white one it shine out to like a 1000 yards. With the 10% discount I could have got that for free. Hope they see this and can make that happen. Got a friend who already is wanting to get him one. Got a Buddy I let come makes some hunts and he has $6000 tied up in one of them Thermals scopes alone. I cannot justify spending that much on one of those for what I want to do and I much rather the sniper because I see and view out farther with out the extra weight and its so easy to work and operate with the rechargeable batteries. You can also order a couple more of some base mounts for other guns and swap to each in just a minute.
