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.

  1. John, you are right on They are here to stay. I have seen a couple other arlteics that have discussed Cross Bow laws in other states (I wish that I had saved them). i recall the arlteics saying that the first season there was a big rush on cross bows at the local sporting good stores, but the novelty was gone as fast as it came in. I think that we will probably see the same effect here in Michigan. A cross bow has some definite advantages, but the hunter that thinks a cross bow is going to be like hunting with a gun, is going to be in for a big surprise. Cross bow hunting will require the same disciplines as our conventional bow hunting. If hunters neglect scent control, and basic tactics they will not see deer in the 50 yard range 9 I am guessing that 50 yards will probably be the max range for a cross bow.
