When Precision Counts
Posted on February 14, 2013
I’ve tested a variety of moveable bowsights over the years, but the best one I’ve used to date is the Custom Bow Equipment Tek-Hunter XL.
The sights are very rugged to begin with and exhibit zero slop, which is a rarity in this class of bowsights. Rather than using a traditional swiveling system, the Tek-Hunter XL uses a unique sliding rapid-drive elevation system. The aperture moves quietly and solidly up or down by releasing a lever-tab and rotating the star wheel forward or back. Once the acquired range is set, simply tighten the lever-tab to the lock position and it’s rock solid again and ready for the shot. This process can be done quickly and quietly, perfect for serious bowhunting use.
Beyond the superb swiveling function, the sight incorporates an eye-appealing sight housing with bright, micro-size fiber pins. The aperture is equipped with a reddish, oversize bubble level, easy to see and center in heated shooting moments. This level has 3rd axis leveling capability for deadly shots no matter the angle.
The sight even has a Rheostat light to make the sight pins more visible in low light. Overall, I came away very impressed with this sight’s function and capability. It’s available in black or Mossy Oak Break-Up camo.
