Gimmick in my opinion. Have a couple of guys saying they are THE WORST 8)

And yes, I tried them (twice in fact, on different guns).

Your focus should always be on front sight, and when doing so, the rear sight will be naturally blurry, preventing/limiting the alignment of the "diamond points". Standard dot sights are superior is this regard, as is a fiber optic front sight with a blackened rear sight.

There's a reason why these sights aren't popular with professional IDPA/IPSC/USPSA competition shooters.

Interesting, you don't see those discussed much.  I would like to hear from someone who has tried them.

Only people with ASPs, and i can't afford an original...would love to have one! :) These Speed Sights I don't think would work for me at all.

They look quite interesting. However, I think that I would spend too much time attempting to line up sights.
