Bowhunting Gear – The Ascent Sight from Black Gold

This year, after the ATA Show, I decided to think out of the box. I have for the past few years used the Black Gold Flashpoint Redzone HD with 7 pins. For 2010 I decided to try the new Ascent from Black Gold, this sight has 4 fixed pins (the top two being .019″ pins and the bottom two .010″) and you can use your bottom pin as a single pin adjustable pin, with a dial you can adjust from 60-120 yards for those longer practice shots. (I love to practice at long distances because it really reveals any flaws in my form!)

Here is some more info on this awesome sight;

The new Black Gold Ascent gives you target sight accuracy with Black Gold’s legendary durability for the ultimate moveable hunting sight. A simple turn of the knob lets you quickly and easily adjust distance.
Ascent… the ultra-light moveable sight with three head configurations!

•Works great with one piece quivers
(unlike most slider sights)
•More range and adjustability than traditional hunting slider sights
•Designed to accomodate computer generated sight tapes
•Quick, smooth and quiet adjustment
•Exclusive front axis adjustments keeps sight dialed in at long ranges

    After getting a look at the Ascent sight at the FCAA Arctic Shoot I checked them out in depth on the Black Gold website. These sights really piqued my interest and with the multiple head configurations there’s bound to be a sight for everyone. I inquired through email about the different heads and the response from Black Gold was super fast. I also like that they have kept the prices reasonable.
    If I see you at the range again in the near future you’ll have to let me take a closer look and give me an update on how you like the sight after shooting with it longer.

    Hi Trev,

    I’ll have to look at yours at the next shoot we both are at as well.

    What length of fiber do they come with? I would love to compare the brightness of this sight with the HHA I currently have.
