I have the HHA Optimizer Speed Dial for my Mission MXB-360 crossbow and the thing is awesome. But when I am hunting in low light, I can't see the numbers on the yardage tape. The deer come out on 4 different trails to the left of my blind set up so it's not like I can just leave it set at a certain yardage. So I use Glow-On super phosphorescent paint on handgun sights in my Gunsmithing shop but I am out of it right now. But they also make an adhesive backed glow in the dark film that's waterproof and I found an old sheet of it laying around in my shop. So I cut some strips and added it to the wheel to see how it would work last time I went out to hunt. The stuff works really well and stays bright for a very long time. Their paint shines brighter than tritium night sights and I add it to customers sights for free if they want to try it out. The pieces I put on moved around, fell off and left adhesive on the wheel so I am going to remove the adhesive, cut really thin lines of it with a razor blade and glue them on with Zap-A-Gap. I tried using a red light but it didn't pick up some of the numbers on the yardage tape so this glow in the dark stuff is the best option to fix it. I will be ordering more of their paint and will probably paint the needle and make hash marks in different colors to the right of the yardage tape later on. Just a simple fix that I wanted to pass along to anybody out there using a single pin bow sight or the crossbow speed dial while hunting.

That could work. I just use the lighted Excalibur Tac Zone scope that is really a Hawke scope and am good to 60 yards with it.

Nice. Yeah I have the pro upgraded kit for my MXB-360 crossbow that comes with the Hawke red/green lighted reticle. But I never bothered to put all the info in to the Hawke BUC app to figure out the yardage for rest of the drops. Or shot it to see what yardage they were lol. I just use the Speed Dial tape. It looks like this reticle.
