Default Have any of yíall tried the EZV sight

I havenít hunted as hard in the past couple of years due to an injury at work.
But enough about me.
Iíve done some searches on here and seems that the threads about the sight just die.
Well my wife bought me one on Black Friday
It took me about 35 min from start to finish to get it set up and sighted in.
And man all I can say is this sight is a game changer!
Open field of view, no more target panic,
No more floating pins, and no more guessing range or which pin to use.

Iím sold and canít wait till after my 3rd and final surgery to get back in the South Texas brush and kill some pigs with it before next deer season.
Wish I had this sight 20 years ago
Pic is was from a few shots at 20 yards and Robin hooded an arrow
Groups are the same at 30
But thatís as far as I can shoot in my back yard.
Heard the smack and is the reason I aimed a little to the right on my last shot Ifigured I just busted another nock but nope
My first Robin Hood.
Iím still in shock!
If you havenít tried one I suggest you do.
God Bless you all and happy hunting

I heard if you buy it you have to let everyone else know how dumb they are for still shooting pins or theyíll take it back

Just did a little research on it very interesting. Did I understand that you buy according to how fast your arrow is.

A guy I hunt public land with started shooting one this year, and he likes it. I have no experience shooting one. But it seems well made

I had one and used it for a few months and liked it in the beginning. I developed bad vertical shots with it past 30 yards and went back to a single pin. I either shot over or under the targets especially pigs.

The shots would always be good horizontally as the target is easy to line up from left to right, but I was never comfortable enough with it.

It comes with inserts that are different speeds they are already mathematically calculated to fit what your set up shoots FPS.
Within an insert or 2.
Example...
my bow chronos at 290 so I tried the 280 FPS insert first and sighted in at 20 yards.All of the inserts are the same at 20.
Stepped back to 30 yards and was shooting high, so then I swapped out inserts and put in the 290 FPS insert.
Shot a few times, still hitting a few inches high so I was skeptical as most any of us would be and I went ahead and popped in the 300 FPS insert and I couldnít believe it I was driving tacks with it.
So basically... what ever your bow chronos
You will be within one inserts if not the insert that your set up chronos.
It comes with 9 different inserts I believe the slowest being 240 FPS and the fastest being 320 FPS.
It all sounds complicated but is actually very simple and is way easier to sight in than a pin sight.

It definitely takes some getting used to.
Itís a big change from shooting pins.

Same here. pin getting blurry now I just look at where I want the arrow to hit and it does.
My mind is blown.
Still canít believe itís as simple as it is.
But donít short change yourself, make sure you watch the tutorials on the website so you understand how it works and how easy it is to sight in.

Might have had the wrong FPS insert in.
Or sighted it in with heavier arrows and changed to lighter arrows possibly?
Did you make sure you were on at 30-40-50 yards before you hunted with it?
Not bashing or doubting your experience but thatís what could happen from my little bit of experience with it.

OP, follow up in a couple months and let us know how it's shooting. When I shot a trigger release, I found tricks that would fix my target panic, but they only worked for a week or two at a time. I would love to hear if the better shots last.

Hard to trust the video on their site. That dudes form is terrible. No wonder he had target panic.

I shot it at 3d targets, realized that it was not for me. It was set up correct but the vertical stringing was All sight picture related. I sold it on here and never heard from the guy and never seen him post about it.

Too much clutter in the sight window for me. I'll stick with the single pin, which has a tape or you can mark for range, or no more than a 3 pin.

Well I sure hope it works for me.
Sorry to hear you had a bad experience with it. As of now I have nothing but great reviews for the sight but only time will tell.
Thank you for sharing your experience with it.

I actually saw a guy that had one on his recurve that had killed a deer with it on the Facebook page.

If any of yíall have Facebook check it out
Way more pictures of kills and testimonies from people that have way more experience with the sight than I do.


Iím just really impressed with it and sharing my experience that Iíve had so far with it.

If there is a rabbit at 35 yards, How would you aim? Would you just have to center it up the best you can and guess the yardage?

I found it on Facebook a while back and I have been following the page.

I didn’t want to make a change during season but I may get one after season and try. It’s certainly intriguing.

Aaron Lasko is a great guy as is their customer service.
I have one, I shoot 550 gr arrows out of a 60 lb bow and the 290 insert is what I use, my arrow speed is 235. Not sure I'll go back to a pin sight anytime soon

So give us your feed back as to why you did not like the sight. I would love to hear from someone other than pigstcka who is pimping them.

See post 33
Iím not pimping anything
Just shared my experience with the sight,
I could care less if you buy one or like it.
I have no affiliation or any kind of connection with the sight besides owning one.
And posts such as yours is the reason a bunch of people donít get on this forum anymore.
Including myself.
Pretty sad when you just show people something cool that I never thought would work till I tried it for myself,
People come out of the wood work just to run their mouths.
Iím not a pimp
Pimpin ainít easy and itís not for me.
