Well just reading about these on AT. Looks like I may have to sell something.
Holy Moly they cost more than my bow on Amazon $799.
I just watched videos on this. Its cool but once again it all comes down to how well you shoot just like any other bowsight but a range finder built in is a cool feature.
I think it’s some awesome new technology! I doubt I buy one any time soon but I was very impressed when I saw the video. I hope it’s reliable and does well so I can buy a used one in a year or two!

I think it’s cool, but even if it was $100 I’m probably not a taker. I like the flexibility of just ranging spots around & not adding any extra when the shot opportunity presents itself. I love gadgets just not this one.
What should also be taken into account is that your grip will be affected as well since it has a push button to activate it. That would mean slightly altering ones grip temporarily at full draw. I have a light i use on coons and predators that works the same way. It can sometimes effect a shot that under normal conditions would be a perfect one
I would rather buy more saddles, rope , and ropeman's......
As cool as that looks and as much as I want one, it would be my luck that it would malfunction when I needed it the most.
Me and electronics don't get along well. I'm gonna stick to pins for now.

I'm sticking with pins for a few more years until the prices come down and competitors enter the market. But this is the new standard. Eventually, this site will do to fixed pin sites what compound bows did to recurve and longbows.

This is what draws me back to recurves and long bows. Somewhere along the way archery was lost and replaced with "pull the trigger".

Exactly, just how hard is it to range to 40 yards. Think I'll stick to my two eyeballs..... wonder what's next a bow that shoots the deer for you.
I stopped carrying a rangefinder half the time because I don't shoot more than 20-25 yards. I will say it is very cool technology. I don't know at what point the line gets drawn though.
I wouldn't be surprised to start seeing more states outlaw these bow-mounted range finder at some point. I haven't read through all the regs in a few years, but I don't think this would be legal in my state right now.
I use a pendulum bow sight. I can shoot out to 35 yards and be dead on. My sight was made by Trophy Ridge and it can be locked down and it becomes a moveable sight for ground shooting. To bad they stop making them. So there is no way I would spend that much on a sight when I could use that money for something useful.
Just an fyi but i saw that IQ bow sites also came up with something similar. I know this isnt for me as it steers archery away from archery.
It would be legal in Pa as long as it doesn't cast a visible light on your target. We can use lighted pins .
