    From what I have heard the new bow is from Pearson and will make its grand unveiling at the ATA show. Again just my .02 but I would think the rangefinder would somehow be built into the riser near the sight holes, only way to get a true reading

    you will see this become a big thing soon.....

    its only a matter of time.......people as a general rule are lazy and this is just one more instance.......

    people will want this "technology" on all bows, soon, and the average 3dshoot, will be nothing more than a marked yardage plinking sesion....

    just another way to cheat..........


    its pretty SAD if you think about it.........

    36" ata. 7.5" bh. shoot through riser (ala Hoyt I would guess). Sounds like the replacement for the Gen II which did not come back for 08. Strange if that's the case as it was primarily a target bow and would have little need of a range finder. It would make more sense to offer it on their speed bow.

    Do not see this working very long. There is a lot of vibertion at all levels in a bow when shoot. I should reek havic on the range finder. :smokin:

    A "built in" range finder is still a range finder so wouldn't it be against the rules still?:noidea:

    yep!

    1 of the guys at my club had a striker Xbow with a rangefinder in his scope
    whole package was $2200.00
    I could see package bow deals already come with sights and will have a high end package with a rangefinding scope.:noidea:
