Black Gold Ascent Verdict Custom Sight

Black Gold Ascent Verdict Custom Sight

The Black Gold Ascent Verdict is Black Gold’s answer to the western style hunter’s need for a lightweight, yet durable adjustable bow sight. From 3rd axis adjustments on all versions, to the 45 degree sight tape viewable at full draw, this sight has it all. The Verdict goes from having the brightest pins in the industry at low light, to almost no blurring of the pins in bright sunlight thanks to keeping its fibers in a photochromic shell that turns a dark purple in bright sunlight. All of this and it’s also one of the more affordable hunting sights on the market.

Great sight, outstanding service

Cannot say enough about build quality of black gold, and the pin brightness. But I have to give S&S archery all the praise, they had my custom sight delivered to my door 10 days after ordering.

Fantastic sight

The sight is perfect. Easy set up and tough as nails. The custom option is fantastic so you get exactly what you want/need. This is the third custom verdict I have ordered in different configurations and love them all. SandS is fantastic as well.

Worth every penny

This sight is worth every penny. My go to option for a multi pin slider. Great service from S&S and ships fast from black gold. Don’t hesitate if you’re looking into getting one.

Custom ascent verdict by black gold

Rob was excellent and knowledgeable in getting me the sight I wanted. He answered my questions and even made sure of the order because I wanted the bottom pin larger for my floater. Always responded to my emails on the shipment information. I will certainly use them again.

Very impressed

Quality sight. Like the single pin, not fussy, like a multi pin sight. I have dyslexia, and this sight eliminates the problems associated with it. Just look at the tape, and you know where the arrow is going. Would recommend for ease of use. Highly recommend.
