Return to Instructions List


Congratulations on your purchase of one of the best sights to begin your competition archery career. With just a little bit of care, this sight should last you for years to come. Here are the basic instructions for assembling the sight.

When you receive your sight from either your dealer or through a delivery service, your sight will come packaged in a clamshell with three parts and a screw pack. The first step to assembly is to remove the bowplate off the extension bar and mount it to the riser of your bow using the enclosed Flat head screws. Next, you will attach the vertical base onto the extension bar using the two enclosed Socket head cap screws.

Next you will attach the windage unit (the part with the brass knob and sight pin) to the sight block. Your windage unit has four holes on it to allow you to mount this piece. You will take the two small cap screws and washers and decide which pair of holes you would like to line up with the sight block and attach the windage unit. The two pairs of holes allow you to move the windage unit either in or out as the case may be.

Now you insert the extension bar back into the bow plate and figure out how far you want to extend the vertical base from your bow. There are milled round holes in the top of the extension bar so that when you tighten the bar down, the nylon tip on the end of the knob will fit into that hole and give you the extra security of knowing that the bar will not move.

Next you need to get a rough idea of where your scope or the end of your pin needs to be for shooting. The best way to do this is to knock and arrow and let it rest on the arrow rest. By looking at the bow from behind (like you would be getting ready to draw) you will be able to see if you need to move the windage unit left or right. To move your windage unit, you will turn the knob with the brass sleeve to move the sight either in or out.

When sighting in, it is recommended that you start at approximately 7 yards. This recommended because the settings are actually very close to the same as if you were at 20 yards and there is less of a risk of losing an arrow. We recommend that you use a target with the x in the middle and aim at the x so you have a starting point. Shoot your first arrow into the target. While sighting in, it is best to make small adjustments and the shoot another arrow. Remember, always follow the arrow. (i.e. if you miss left, move your windage left and vice versa.) Continue this process until your arrow is in line with the x in the middle of the target. When this happens, it is now time to adjust for your vertical. The same concept applies, Follow your arrow. To adjust the vertical, you will loosen the lock knob with the lever on the front of the sight. After you loosen this knob about two revolutions, you should be able to push the sight block up or down as needed. When you are hitting the x at 7 yards, you can then step back to 20 yards and take a couple of more shots to fine tune. After you are sighted in at 20, you will have all the information you need if you are going to be using a computer generated sight tape. If not, repeat the process at 25, 30, 35 etc. for however many marks you want to have. If you find that you can not get your sight high enough or low enough, you can loosen the screws that attach the vertical base to the extension bar and position them into different holes.
