    So I got the call today that might sight was done! Less than 24 hours and they were calling me. That is sweet. Drove down to pick it. Better than I was expecting. I'll get it put on tomorrow and see how it works. Black Gold is top notch.

    Did you make your own marks for distant marks, or did you have a tape made for your bow set-up?

    I bought the archers advantage software, plugged in my chronograph measurement, printed out my sight tape and bingo! Everything was spot on out to 80 yds. I like the other programs on it also, you can print out targets, plug in your measurements on your bow(just in case something moves) and check back to see what they are supposed to be. You can also see what arrows would be best for the bow you are shooting for optimum spine.

    Bohntr, can you explain how this sight works? Are the top 4 pins fixed and then the bottom pin slides? I'm kind of confused.

    The whole site moves (head).......you simply use your bottom pin for all "moveable" distances. Example: You have a five pin Ascent sight so you're probably sighted in (fixed) from 20-60 yards. When you're shooting tournaments or practicing distance target shooing at say 70 yards, you move the sight (down) to where your bottom pin now becomes your 70 yard pin.

    It's easy to sight in.....once you're sighted in from 20-60 yards, you mark that location on your sight tape. Then you go to 70 yards and utilize your bottom pin and turn the knob to lower the sight until you're sighted in at 70. Mark that location on your sight tape and continue (if needed for tournaments) until you've reached your desired maximum target range. Just remember to turn your sight back to the 20-60 mark before you shoot at something in hunting range.

    Here is my new Black Gold Ascent custom sight I picked up yesterday.

    Went with the Surge head, Vengeance base.
    Pins
    yellow .019
    green .019
    red .010
    green .010
    yellow .010

    Going to get the sight tape on today and start the process of sighting in and marking distances over 60. Going up to 120 yards for fun. Plus I'll be at the Bowcast at the Bird next month in Utah, and some of the targets are 100 yards.



    Here is the back side of the sight (the other sight is my sons new Rush sight from BG as well)
