Looks like this new site by Garmin is a game changer but for $800 I don't know if its worth it....

That's pretty impressive. Wonder how the screen reacts to different weather conditions.

Pretty slick. Not 800 dollars of slick but pretty slick.

I tend to agree, but as expensive as some bows are, and some traditional sights for that matter, it's not that far outa range. plus, if it takes the place of a handheld rnage finder, there's $100 - $500 right there you're not spending. My isssue with it would be a warranty for performance and and abuse. Not saying I would drop $800, but my bow is around 10 years old, and I still like my bow, so if I KNEW that wherever I pointed the dot, I was given an accurate reading AND the proper pin to use at an instant with no other pins in the sight picture, I could be tempted. Seems like something a guy would like to try out before buying. Suppose there will be a boot at the Deer Classic with this toy and a "Show Special Price"? Big Grin

If it makes a person more proficient in killing deer (or other critters) Im all for it!

Be interesting how the 3D shoots handle someone having this sight on their bow.

Might make someone more proficient, but may also make some more of a slob. I can easily see people trying 80-100 yard shots because "it told them the distance".

Not to mention their animal would not be eligible for B&C or P&Y.
