8 Great New Bowsights

Any customer who walks in your archery shop is likely to find their ideal bowsight among these eight great choices.

8 Great New Bowsights

Choosing a bowsight is a critical decision for any bowhunter. These eight options, which include single-pin, multi-pin and multi-pin movable designs, are some of the finest bowsights on the market today.



The AccuStat II scope is a lighter-weight, premiere multi-pin housing that will mate with any AXCEL sight with a second and third axis removable block. It features a more durable, one-piece fire pin, brightening each pin as much as possible. Each pin has approximately 26 inches of fiber strategically wrapped around the 1.75-inch scope housing.

The AccuStat II scope has a lighter, more durable rheostat cover for added fiber security, allowing the archer to adjust the amount of natural light that reaches the fibers. The AccuStat scope is available in three- and five-pin models and in .019- or .010-inch pin sizes.

Black Gold

Using the same proven principles as the field-proven Ascent Verdict, Black Gold’s Ascent Mountain Lite comes in a more compact, lightweight profile. Don’t be fooled by its size, though. It delivers the same functionality Ascent Verdict fans rave about, including first, second- and third axis adjustability.

A fluorescent green scope ring and coiled fiber optics provide seamless acquisition in a peep sight, even in dim lighting. Available in 3- and 5-pin configurations, the Mountain Lite features a geared drive and the new Duel Indicator System.

New to HHA’s line is the Tetra Max, which is offered in hunting sub-models, one with a single pin, the other with four pins. Both are constructed solidly as HHA sights have been since the beginning. Each Tetra Max sight includes two yardage wheels so you can seamlessly swap between arrow setups. Pin diameters are available in .010 or .019 inch. Available scope diameters are 1.375, 1.625 and 1.8 inches.

The yardage wheel adjusts smoothly and features an ultra-fine pointer that can be swapped with a magnifier for easier reference. All HHA sights are backed by a 100% lifetime warranty for the original owner.

Rocky Mountain

The Driver can be configured as a single- or three-pin sight based on needs and preferences. It comes with a block that can be set to a specific home yardage for a quick return. The fully enclosed .019-inch fiber-optic pins deliver clarity and brightness. Laser-etched windage and elevation marks provide positive reference while adjusting.

All-aluminum construction puts worries to rest. Radial Arc Elevation Adjustment keeps bezel square to the shooter’s dominant eye. Second and third axis adjustments add the finishing touches.

Schaffer Performance Archery

Schaffer’s Opposition Air proves that rock-solid dependability needs not bog down a bow with cumbersome weight. At 4 ounces, it’s one of the lightest sights available, constructed from durable 7075 aluminum. A pivot-lock arm allows the user to quickly detach the sight and re-attach it without changing accuracy.

A bright green scope ring speeds acquisition in a peep sight. Pins protrude from opposite sides of the scope housing, which helps the shooter positively select the correct pin in a fast-paced hunting scenario.

The rock-solid Fast Eddie XL gets an upgrade with a new 6-inch dovetail bar and bow mount. Easily remove and re-install when traveling while maintaining pinpoint accuracy.

The same great features from the original Fast Eddie XL reciprocate to this new model: MRT Technology, second- and third-axis technology, a smooth-operating geared elevation drive system and benchmark durability and reliability. Multiple pin configurations are available, including the Double Pin and Double Pointer.

Trophy Ridge

Flaunting Realtree Edge Camo is Trophy Ridge’s React H5, which features proven React Technology — simply sight-in the 20- and 30-yard pins and the remaining three pins automatically set for 40, 50 and 60 yards, respectively. A rheostat light provides adjustable fiber-optic illumination.

The Ballistix CoPolymer System provides surprising strength in a lightweight setup. Tool-less micro-click windage and elevation adjustments offer precision and simplicity.

Lighten the load with TRUGLO’s Veros, an ultra-light five-pin bowsight featuring carbon-composite construction. The bright fiber-optic pins taper in size — the top three are .019 inch and the bottom two are .010 inch. Easily convert the sight for right- or left-handed archers.

The updated scope-housing ring is glow-in-the-dark for easy reference in low-light situations. Available in black or Realtree Camo, the Veros features micro-adjustable windage and elevation.
