I understand now. But I still like having ally pins right there ready to go!

These new sights look awesome! Never been a fan of trophy ridge but I may have to try this one out after this season.

I just wish I could find one! I have checked everywhere. I have even called Trophy Ridge. They tell me that they have already started shipping them but are already backordered with their resellers. He did say they would have more within a few weeks.

I have the React 5-pin and really like it. Mike have to pick one of these up when they come out and give it a try. Looks cool

I finally found a few. I bought two on Ebay yesterday. I'm hoping to have it sighted in before I leave for Kansas on Wednesday!

I am very impressed with the products that both Trophy Ridge and Bear are coming out with lately. Hell I was so impressed with their line ups that i purchased a Bear Empire and React 5 pin just 6 months ago and boy am I in love!!!! I can't wait to get out of training and head down to Ft. Bliss and starting my hunting season. This new React 1 looks nice but i have tried a single pin before (HHA) and i must just be a multi pin guy because i just never could get comfortable with it in the tree. That being said though this sight looks amazing and the ease of setup for both the React 5 and 1 are very hard to pass up!

well I called t/r today while I was at work and they said that the left hand set up would not be out intell a mount or so. I guess they are giving all the right handed bow shooters the first chance to get there practice time before the left handed shooters get there.LOL just tricking you guys and gals.its really a good prouduct I have been reading a lot about it and I think its really going to be great.

I mounted and sighted mine in yesterday and am VERY pleased. I am shooting very tight groups. I have to get use to only having the one pin though lol It is great to only have one to focus on but twice I have changed distances and forgotten to adjust the sight. Outside of that it has been great. I shot a 40 yard group today that would have fit inside a silver dollar. The only problem was I broke a nock!

Does this new sight have 3rd axis adjustability? If not then it's not worth $200.
I personally would stick with the black gold single pin with the dove tail to gain the 3rd axis adjustability. It comes with pre-printed sight tapes which are based on the same math as the smart pin technology.
It does have 3rd axis adjustability.

Good to know. I already have a react 5 and I love it and with me mainly hunting out of a blind now that I'm in west Texas I don't see much of a need for 2nd and 3rd axis unless on a crazy steep hill

I'm not sure how that could work. Say you are shooting feathers that are faster than vanes through a graph, but slow down a lot faster than vanes at longer distances. I just don't see how it could take this into consideration.
