Black Gold Ascent Verdict Custom Sight
I set this one up without micro adjust to keep the weight down and it has performed perfectly. First 20 minutes in the field I took an 8point buck with it. Nuff said!
This sight is the best of both worlds. Customize the number of fixed pins you want in your sight picture, then have a moveable pin to dial up for long range. Well made. My thought is get the micro gang adjust, but save some money and skip the micro adjustable pin feature. S & S provides fantastic service and advice.
First off, kudos to the team at S&S Archery. Placed a custom order on Monday and my sight arrived on Friday.
As for the sight, it’s everything I hoped it would be. Rock solid, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd axis adjustment, the pins are bright when they need to be and dim when they don’t (photo chromatic cover works great), and the tapes are accurate and easy to apply.
Over time, multiple pin sights (4-5 pins) and my eyes just haven’t gotten along. I shot them great for years but recently my eyes started to blur with the clutter and red pins really have a halo effect. So I went to an HHA Optimizer lite 2 years ago and loved the clean sight picture of a single pin and the ability to stretch out and practice at longer distances. But when hunting season came around I found myself constantly worrying about missing or wounding a deer because I would mess up on the yardage. I know 1000s of hunters bag game every season with a single pin sight but for me and my history with multiple pin sights, I am just more comfortable gap shooting and having another pin for reference in hunting situations.
The 3 pin Ascent Verdict is the best of both worlds. Less clutter with only 3 pins, the ability to customize pin sizes and color (.010 for my bottom), and the ability to use a floater pin on my slider makes for a sight that I think I will be using for many years.
MBG knocked it out of the park with this one and at a price point thats a little easier on the wallet than their competitors.
Awesome help with custom sight order. Great follow up after purchase with questions
