    Looking good, Beener. Tell me, what do you like so much about that BG sight? It looks nice, but I know nothing about it and am just curious...

    Best pins on the market (from what I have seen). I always thought the photochromatic was BS...it's not. Keeps the pins perfect. No sight light needed in any shooting condition. I put the build quality up there with Spot Hogg. And the features are well thought out. I would never pay the price one of these sights run new but man are they nice. If I was a wealthy guy a new one of these would be hard to turn down. The only thing I wished this had (still wouldn't pay the difference) is micro adjust pins. You can get it with that head since this is a "custom shop" sight but that would be another $60 more I believe. The way I have it configured right now the new price is $230 plus shipping. To break it down:

    Positives
    - Overall build quality
    - Best pins I have seen
    - Slider mechanism is smooth and locks down great
    - All adjustment markings are clear and easy to re-acquire
    - You have a 1,3 or 5 pin sight with the ability to dial in exact yardages or crank it out and shoot 100 yards without using hold over (fun to do)
    - Plethora of ways to put the sight together so it fits the way you want it.
    - Level is adjustable at the dovetail, aperture, connecting mount and 3rd axis (also a negative)

    Negatives

    - Too many ways to adjust the level. You can adjust the physical level in the aperture, on the slider to dove tail connection and on the third axis. Need to get to Milos and use his mount and levels
    - 3rd Axis is easy to make "loose". If you turn the screw TOO far it will make it so you can physically move the sight left to right (wiggle). They put like ten warnings not to turn it more than half a turn either way but I feel it should have a stops built in before error.
    - They are expensive for my cheap ass. $230 for a sight is half a new gun...
    Molōn labe!

    I am looking at new ones. This one works ok but I don't like it that well. It is an Apex Gear quiver.
    Molōn labe!

    What don't you like about it? You would laugh your ass off if you saw mine from back in the early 80's. I need to update my Jennings T Star with Milo's expertise and get a new quiver TOO.

    Sweet looking setup. Does the camera mounted on your stab work pretty good?

    It works great for footage leading up to the shot but blurs right at the shot release. Kind of a pain to get back on target after the shot but it's nice to be aimed at my target when they come walkin in.

    Here is the most recent (only recent) pic I have of my bow. Mathews Outback. Sword sites and ripcord rest. Won it at a banquet in 2006, haven't even really thought about getting another one. No clue how fast it shoots, other than fast enough to go through a deer.

    Our ability to perceive quality in nature begins, as in art, with the pretty. It expands through successive stages of the beautiful to values as yet uncaptured by language.

    Here is my Hoyt Katera ripcord rest, sword 3rd plane six pin, a-bomb stabilizer. I sold my Hoyt CRX 32 and ordered a Hoyt Spyder Turbo in Black.
