Default Trophy Ridge React Bow Sight

Hey all, does anyone have any experience or shot this new sight? It claims to sight itself in after sighting in 2 of the 5 pins. Debating on trying this sight in the upcoming season. Any input would help, thanks all !

this sight is awesome,we have sold 4-5 of them so far. you set the top pin at 20 yards horizontal,and vertical. then set 30 yard pin for vertical. your 40,50,and 60 drop right into place. and they all have been dead on accurate. it also has the built in pin illumination lite,and the sight is all fingure adjustable. no allen wrenches. excellent sight imo.

Bighorn, that sounds awesome! I'm wanting to switch from my G5 XR2. It has a moveable second pin but I am planning on getting new sights since I will be filming this season. Less movement to worry about before the shot.

I haven't personally shot the React, but I've held it and looked it over pretty closely. While I love the SmartPin technology I can't help but wonder why they didn't fully protect the fibers on the back of the pins. They're completely exposed and IMO don't seem to be too securely held into place. If it wasn't for that one thing, I'd probably have one my bow by now.

Hopefully they release an updated version for next year, I'd love try it!

Also, a few folks I've talked to said they had better luck with accuracy by sighting in their 20 yd pin and then their 50 or 60 yd pin. The pins in the middle of those ranges then drop into place and are a little closer to spot on.

The owner of my local archery shop turned me on to this sight. This is the site that he uses on his bow and he tells me he loves it! I can't wait to get mine!

Got mine about 2 weeks ago and so far really like it but have only been able to shoot out to 20 yards so haven't had a chnace to dial all the other pins in yet. Hope to get out this week at some point!

Default Dang, thanks for warning me

I'm not only cheap, I'm an old timer who does his own sight in.

Automatic sighting of a bow sight!!! Next thing they'll have sights that shoot the arrow, accurately.

Thanks for reminding me to really go with the cheaper sight. And you brought back some great memories of a former neighbor who had a big orange vase, that I used to sight in scopes.

Using that vase cost me nothing. It sure helped the ol eyeball sight in.
