11 New Bow Sights for 2011
July 13, 2011
Whether the buck walks in from 20-, 30-, or 40-yards, any of these sights will help you punch a tag this upcoming season.
The Tundra is an ultra-lightweight, compact sight that adds only 3.6 ounces to a bow's overall weight. The reversible bracket allows for greater vertical adjustment, and a large circu-lar field of view allows for more light and a greater sight picture. A glow-in-the-dark shooter's ring aids low-light performance. The sight accepts any Apex Gear
or TRUGLO light. Adjustable for both right- and left-handed shooters.
Archer Extreme Carbon Carnivore
Utilizing fully machined 100-percent 3K Carbon Fiber materials in a 6061 T6 solid billet, the Carbon Carnivore from Archer Extreme
is lightweight but strong. Eleven inches of .019-inch fiber optics in each pin achieve remarkable bright-ness, while the Fiber Harness bracket system aids superior light-gathering ability at dawn or dusk. Pins offer EZ Set micro pin adjustment, which doesn't require tools to make necessary adjustments in the field. The 2-inch sight housing allows for an excellent field of view, and a rubberized clear coat minimizes the effects of vibration to your pin settings.
Black Gold Rush
The Black Gold
Rush features an all-machined base and pin guard, all-metal Bomb Proof Micro-Groove pins and an interchangeable fluorescent sight ring. Ultra-bright SkyCoil fiber optic technology gathers all available light for lowlight shooting, while a photocromatic shell automatically darkens, blocking UV light from reaching the fiber and prevent the pins from getting too bright during midday shooting.
Black Gold Vengeance
Billed as Black Gold's
most innovative sight to date, the Vengeance provides first, second and third axis adjustability through four-way micro adjustments including a horizontal and vertical gang adjustment, the company's exclusive Inch Wheel adjustment and the BombProof Micro Grove two-piece pin that allows for individual horizontal and vertical adjustments. You won't have problems getting this sight dialed in. Sky-Coil technology provides excellent pin brightness and the FlashPoint Photo Chromatic shell blocks UV light to temper pins in full-sun conditions. Available in black and camo and with five pins or seven.
Bushwhacker bow sight boasts four protected all-metal pins measuring .019 of an inch in thick-ness, along with an adjustable third axis bubvle level. A 1 3/4-inch-wide all-metal sight guard contains a 'œglo-orange' ring to aid in target acquisition, and a reversible mounting bracket with offset mounting holes allows for a wide range of vertical adjustment. Universal design accommodates right- and left-handed shooters.
Fuse Carbon Pilot G-Series
Like all of Fuse's
Carbon Pilot sight series, the Pilot G utilizes light, tough carbon in the rail extension. Other features include durable sight housings, precision mounts, bright fiber optics and gang adjustment, as well as customizable leveling for dialing the sights in for consistent performance. An optional LED Sight Lite aids the sight picture in low light. Available in three-, five- and seven-pin versions.
Rock is a four-pin sight with a lightweight aluminum housing, solid rack and pinion gearing for precise micro-adjustments, completely machined pins and stepped mounting bracket. The ambidextrous sight also offers second axis adjustment, and pins can be removed or added to fit your individual needs. Pin choices include .019-inch pins or .010-inch pins. The Rock can be had in Durafuse Realtree AP camo, Lost camo or powder coat black.
The IQ Bowsight
is available in both a four-pin and seven-pin model, which allows pins to nest with each other to accommodate tighter pin gaps. Optic fibers are protected in a cavity in the cast aluminum pins for protection from dings and damage, while the Light Trap Technology stores light in the optics, releasing it to the pins as darkness grows. The Retina Lock Alignment Technology is designed to provide precision sight alignment even at distances to 40 yards and beyond, allowing some archers to extend their effective range. Pins are .019 inch thick.
This renowned illuminated riflescope manufacture
has entered the archery market with their exceptionally engineered AccuPin archery sight. Utilizing a high-contrast triangular aiming point and clear pin with zero obstructions and zero MOA aims much like a riflescope would without obscuring your target. Key features include tritiumphosphor lamp and large diameter fiber optics, battery-free illumination, High Impact Shade Shield and high-visibility aiming circle, a sight level, fore and aft adjustments, and a laser-etched AccuDial yardage adjustment. Made of 6061-T6 aluminum and available in black, Mathews Lost camo and Realtree AP. Numerous attachment options are also available, generating a wide range in cost for the AccuPin depending on the configuration.
Trophy Ridge Pursuit
Marketed as a sight with one pin and limitless settings, the Trophy Ridge
Pursuit is just that. The single pin allows for precise adjustments inside the 100-percent aluminum construction. Delrin Bushings allow for smooth, silent adjustment with no metal-to-metal contact. Other features include the Rheostat Sight Light, a low-light Glo Indicator tape, 14 inches of .019-inch fiber op-tics for the pin and a sight level with third axis adjustability.
TruGlo Rite Site XS
Rite Site XS features a large circular field of view with an aperture or inner diameter of two inches. The pin guard is rigid for increased durability without adding weight to your bow. A glow-in-the-dark shooter's ring provides rapid target acquisition in low light, and the level, with two bars, visually aids the shooter in maintaining level shots. Can be used by right-handed or left-handed shooters. The sight also comes with an adjustable rheostat light and is avail-able in three- or five-pin models.
