    Default Target archery sights

    I am new to this site, this is my first post.....and I have been out of the loop in target archery for about 10-12 years now. I am looking for a New sight and scope combo, and I have done some surfing to find many different options. I was always a Chek-it fan but have been having trouble with the one I own. My wife is shooting with a Sure loc and it looks to be very nice. Any opinions on this? Larry

    Welcome to the site. You'll get a lot of opinions on this one. I own 3 Copper John ANTS Evo2 sights. They are extremely well built and their customer service is outstanding.

    My 3D set up has a small sized Viper scope with a 3X lens. The fiber up pin is very bright and it isn't too expensive.

    My indoor set up has a small scope with a true spot lens.

    Best bet is to get your hands on them and play around with them and see what you like or dislike first hand....

    Sure-Loc has been my sight of choice for 11 years now, but if I was looking for a replacement i would have to give a carbon Shibuya a good hard look. Hey Bullfiddle, on that Sword sight, how fine is the spacing on the vertical adjustment compared to a Sure-Loc? That threaded rod looks like a pretty aggressive pitch........

    it is aggressive but the sight does not click if that makes any sense. It's kinda like ya just put it where you want it and that's it. so there really is no spacing I guess. you can move the site a half a millimeter if ya wanted to. I would guess you would call it a true micro adjust...Hope that helps wish I could explain it better.
