    For the sight, I think its awesome. I want one, but I don’t have a grand to drop on something that’s not allowed in a handful of states I wanna hunt in the future. But other than that, I think its the future of bowsights.

    Stabilizer, its eh

    I like the idea of it but personally wouldn’t use one in the field. I just don’t have the need for it

    The stabilizer is just a vibration dampener, won’t do much if anything for pin float. Check out the b stinger pro hunter Maxx

    Buddy got one for his first bow. I honestly think it’s a waste of money. Archery is simple, pin sights are simple….and they work! Last thing I want when I’m out in the back country is to have a failure, and this thing is ripe for it. Bad batteries, getting bounced out of zero, electronic issues, water issues. Not to mention, you have to draw, then press a button to range, which might affect your grip. I just think pins are the way to go.

    I’ve had the xero for 2 hunting seasons. Have it mounted on a halon 32. It’s heavy and required me to use a back bar for balance. But besides that it’s been amazing. Sight in process is simple and you have to manually input as many distance markers as possible for it to be truly accurate. For example you “sight it in” at 20 yards and then move back 10 yards and sight it in again at 30 and so on as far as your bow setup will allow. I originally ran lighter arrows and could reach out to 112 yards and since I switched arrows I had to re sight it in and now I’m limited at 85 yards. Once it’s all setup you can only miss by making a poor shot. It adjust for tree stand and level ground shooting btw.

    They have been out for a couple of years now. I think they are awesome Just too expensive for me, at least for now.

    Get a stabilizer that you can put weight on the end of. And add or subtract weight to make you pin as stable as you can

    Too expensive, too heavy, and not legal in the state I hunt the most.

    I had one and I ended up taking it back. I used it for one hunting season in Michigan and it wouldn’t work in the cold. I also had trouble keeping the zero. Every time I turned it off I would have to sight it in again. I knew it was time for a different sight when I got into my tree stand and it wouldn’t turn on. It’s also very heavy and adds time to your shoot

    I have seen a few people that have used that sight. It’s not worth it, and by the time you need it to work it will cause issues. Also way more weight. Just my $ .02

    That sight isn’t legal in a lot of places. I’m also a believer in a longer stabilizer than what most people are probably hunting with.

    I think its expensive as hell and even if I had the money I probably wouldn’t buy one.

    I mean, I’m not an archery purist – but there comes a point where it’s just like… not even archery anymore lol. I’m personally going to draw the line at needing to download software.

    Ive had it for about 2 years. Works great if you can handle the added weight. I also recommend yearly software updates and ensuring your battery is replaced at least once a year.
