This sight won't take you far

I bought this sight one year ago within a package. I have always been shooting barebow but recently started recurve. There are so many loose parts of it that make the shooting experience unpleasant. I started with 30lbs. At first it was the sight mount -- the two screws get loose and the entire sight rattles. I did some research and asked around and worked around it with some teflon tape. Other parts still get loose and I can take the trouble to tighten them up after every few shots, not happily though. Also the sightpin will angle down after a few shots even though the **** that locks it down is tightened to the max. Real nightmare comes when I upgraded to 36lbs (my daily poundage for barebow). Every single **** on it gets loose after 1 or 2 shots. The worst thing happened when the side **** popped off, and then it was extremely hard to put them back. I'm not even sure if it was broken or it was just that way.

Also, even when everything is tightened to the maximum the sight pin still moves by a bit.

I don't mind if a sight has fewer features or is not easy to adjust, but it is essential to ensure parts stay solid and stable with reasonable vibration, shot after shot.
I would even hope that it is an issue with quality control and the one in my hand is just of poor quality.

I've ordered a Shibuya Ultima RC III and hopefully it is good enough to take me to the Olympics. I would recommend you do the same thing (not Shibuya specifically, any battle-proven high-end sight will do) -- buy once, cry once. A decent entry-level riser and/or limbs can take you farther than regional tournaments. An entry-level sight might just ruin your game and demotivate you from continuing your archery journey.

Works well

Bought this sight for my teenager (will most probably buy the same for myself). Easy to install and super easy to adjust on the fly. So far so good: no vibration issues like reported here. Favored this one over Avalon Classic Pro Recurve Sight for lighter weight.

Works well, but rattles with vibration... simple fixes needed

Obviously you get what you pay for. This sight is very inexpensive for the construction
and features. The only down side is the vibration & rattling which comes down to build know-how on the part of the manufacturer.

Problems:
1) Mount has countersinks for screws which are 90 deg. (metric), even though the
mounting screws are #10-24 NC, which have 82 deg head... result, **** doesn't
sit in countersink properly... had to re-cut with imperial countersink... and change
the 1/2" long screws (short) to 3/4" long screws.

2) **** used to tighten arm bar has really sloppy threads. Poor fit = low thread
engagement = low retention... easily comes loose... unless you tighten it so hard,
the plastic tip deforms... used orange pipe tape.

3) Vertical center slider has plastic gib (wedge) on one side and a very small gap on the
other (rear) side. I found this to be a big source of rattle. I slid a piece of paper in there and voila, noise reduced. They should have made the gap larger or used another
wedge. In any case, a piece of duct tape carefully slid in between (stuck to the slider side), eliminated the noise.

4) Thumb **** knurls (for vertical lock and sight pin mount) are so smooth, its hard to
get a good grip to lock or unlock... which means they are coming loose if you don't reef
on them.

5) Fivics sight pin damper (from CAO) also helped... this was the first thing I tried... the sharp rattle is reduced, but still audible.

Overall... I don't regret buying this unit... its very solid now... and I can only blame my
lack of shooting skills for poor results :)

Good Sight for the Price!

Was recommended this sight over the Avalon Tec One (regular) sight as it has less screwed in parts that can shake themselves loose. So far, so good! Haven't had a need to loc-tite anything.

Overall, the sight offers good value as it comes with macro and micro adjustments and includes a travel bag to keep everything together. The sight arm has little divets that give a satisfying small click. Same for the micro adjustments. The macro adjustment is smooth as well. The reticule block is easily unscrewed for better storage. Overall, good sight for the price point!

Great value

All the precision tuning you need for a very good price.
The only complain I have is one of the retention ring got lose and is lost after the 2nd or 3rd session of shooting. Nothing a little loctite couldn't fix but apply loctite before setting it up and shooting.

Special orders receive top priority and are given prompt attention. While larger items like bows may not always be readily available, many special order items are consistently kept in stock. The general turnaround time for special orders is a minimum of 8 weeks, depending on the lead times set by the manufacturer.

Certain bows, such as custom target bows and high-quality traditional recurve bows, are exclusively made to order directly from the manufacturer.

In some instances, left-handed products like premium target equipment may experience unforeseen delays due to batch production by the manufacturer.

We strive to meet the deadlines mentioned above and make every effort to do so. However, there may be circumstances beyond our control that prevent us from meeting those deadlines. If such a situation arises, we will make every effort to rectify the issue. Special orders can be canceled or exchanged and are eligible for a refund after 8 weeks.
