    I wonder of this will solve the problem of guys looking through a peep and not picking a spot, but instead seeing a general area on a deer because they are super excited about the 2 1/2 yr old 110" deer they are drawn on and releasing an arrow. It could possibly help them from getting out of their stand immediately, calling 16 buddies who are half drunked up and a buddy with a lab (a.k.a. house dog, a.k.a. deer tracker) to come track the deer. It could also give them an excuse or product to blame so they don't feel like less of a man and cause them to admit that they are simply amateur hour players and should stick to crossbows or rifles.
    All the technology in the world can't make you a killer! For those of you who are killers this would be something to add to your gear. For those of you who aren't (deep down you know who you are)...save the money.

    I wasn't interested until I found out it was good out to 100 yards. Before that I thought it would be useless for bow hunting.

    Only crossbows kill deer out to those yardages! Could you imagine this sight on a crossgun? Talk about unfair! I doubt slow minded, slob xgun hunters have The cerebral capacity to set this particular sight up initially anyways......

    Toooo much $$$$ for me. I don't want to miss a deer because it was ranging a small limb at 15 yards and not the deer at 30. KISS

    For those that are in to all the latest gadgets it seems like a pretty cool acc. I have never been one of those guys much to speak of. It took me a bit to go with the latest gadget at the time, years ago called a compound. As for range finders, I have never used one, much less owned one, so doubt I will run out and buy this one. I have always had my legs, and have always done steps instead of yards, although they are very close to the same. All my hunting life I have always just picked a tree, bush, etc. in the out doors, or an isle, subject on a shelf, etc. in a store such as wal mart and guessed how many steps then start counting. I do this all the time in my mind without at times, even realizing it daily and everywhere. I have got to where I can about guess my steps on the money. I step off my practice target, and areas of expectation at my stands. I have never left my legs "at home" or "in the truck". I use one fixed pin set at 20 steps, and compensate distance like sights on a rifle, and practice accordingly. I keep it as simple as I can, therefore keeping the "problems" at the Moment Of Truth to a minimum.

    Time is money! Toss this bad-boy on and skip practicing, get those home projects done in the offseason and spend more time in the woods.
    Fantastic idea!
    If I can just get wifi extended out far enough into my heated, elevated $4000 Muddy blind I can kill deer like the pros.

    *crossbow that shoots 3" groups at 100yrds.
    *GPS nocks on the bolts
    *auto-ranging sight

    Will it fit on my X-Gun? I have the heatseeking explosive broadheads with the RFID transmitters, but I just don't feel secure in my equipment!

    Yeah, what a great product... you see you're exactly 37 yards away, and the laser dot gives you the exact spot the deer WOULD have been had he not ducked your arrow!

    Does that feature come on the standard model too, or just the mailman signature series?:thinking:

    This is a re-package of a product that has been around a little while. I looked at a rangefinder that mounted to your sight a few years ago when I decided I wanted to take some guess work out of yardage. I decided against it since it was dedicated to shooting that bow it is mounted too. I realized a hand-held is more versatile in that you can use it for bow, gun, atlatl, slingshot, practice range, and golf.

    FYI, this goes a step further and automatically adjusts your pin to the ranged yardage.

    Which is another leap of faith you have to take at the MOT.
