Cool trophy ridge react one.

I just would like to see how many people were interested in the new react one single pin bow sight from trophy ridge. I just stop by precision archery.in bridge city to order mine for my bow-tech experience. if you will drop a line about what you think about it. note if your bow shoots over 330 feet per second then it may not be for you just putting that out there. would to see how many tbh use single pin sight verses 3or5 pin.

Here is the thing there will always be those that love single pin and those that don't. I wanted to love single pin for a few reasons 1) no clutter (due to this increased awareness of surroundings) 2) always pin point accurate if target is ranged properly. Now I bought an HHA due to these two things but ultimately went to the TR react 5 sight and here is why. There is already to much that I am concerned with while up in a tree stand than to adjust my sights. Then some may argue well put it on 25-30 and aim high or low of the animal (well there goes the pin point accuracy explained in 2). I gave it an entire season of trying it out I just didn't enjoy it. Not saying its not a nice sight its actually awesome! If I was hunting out of a blind maybe I would change my mind but I like the versatility of a 5 pin and knowing if the deer moves you can always change your pin with almost no noticeable movement. Now if your a one pin guy I say buy it without a doubt because trophy ridge and Bear Archery are really stepping up their game its amazing I had a bow tech and switched to the Bear Empire after shooting all the big name bows. I found the Empire to shoot the nicest (for me). Bowhunting is so personal its just finding what helps you fill your freezer no matter what others think.

I am very interested in this site, as I have a three pin site now and only use one pin to shoot with any way... I shoot Mathews Switchback set at 73lbs. I would love to at least try this site.

My five pin react sight twangs so bad I had to take it off. Loved the sight but it was loud as could be. I tightened everything and even wrapped electical take around the clear plastic housing. That helped but still too dang loud. I put the Spot hogg back on and quiet as usual.

I'm very interested in a one pin site. I have a faster bow now and my pins are real close together and it's starting to block my view.

I read read other reviews online that the react site is loud. Some guys even returned their site and got another one just like it with no problems. Mine was when they first came out so not sure if that has something to do with it or not.

Have the TR React 5 pin. No noise issues here. Went from a single pin to this. Does add clutter to sight pic and noticeable weight difference. Enjoy shooting out to 70 yrds just pin settling though.

I shot the 3 pin CBE tek hybrid. They are set at 30, 40, 50. Which covers whitetails. With that said you can use the bottom pin as a floater and dial to 100.

With the CBE you can change to a single pin housing in a minute if need be or vise versa.

I thought about moving to the react for my back up bow to save some coin, but think ill go with another cbe teck hybrid with single pin housing.
