A Better Sight for Better Shooters, the PSE Eclipse Micro
Editor’s Note: Blake Shelby, the Public Relations and Marketing Director for PSE bows was in charge of showing and promoting PSE’s exciting new youth products at this year’s Archery Trade Association (ATA) meeting, held January 10 – 12 in Columbus, Ohio. Shelby explains that PSE’s line-up of new products majors on new and better bows and accessories for young people in 2012.
Question: Blake, what makes the new Eclipse Micro a better sight than other sights on the market today?
Shelby: Last year, PSE introduced the new sights of the X-Force bows. PSE wanted a high-end sight that was very strong and carried all the features that bowhunters want when they go to the woods. There’re a variety of new sights for the X-Force bows, but my favorite is the Eclipse Micro sight. This is a heavy-duty, well-built sight, and the main feature of the sight is that it’s one-piece machined. There’s very little slack (wiggle room) in the sight. One of the biggest differences between low-cost sights and higher-priced sights is the precision with which the sight is made, not only the features on the sight.
Any archery company can put a lot of features on a sight, but the real quality in the sight is determined when you loosen the arrow. Does the sight want to fall off of the bow or is it machined very well so that there’re slight tolerances? The PSE Eclipse Micro sight is held to very strong tolerances and detail when the sights are made. Plus it has all of the features that bowhunters want. The Eclipse Micro has an incredible new micro adjustable bubble on it to make sure your alignment is correct before you release the arrow. It also accepts lenses in case you want to put a target lens on the sight for magnification. The Eclipse Micro has micro-adjustments for fiber optics and it also includes a light which is a great feature for shooting in low-light conditions in states where using a lighted sight is legal.
The Eclipse Micro sight was designed to be tough enough to handle hard conditions, while still including all the features bowhunters want in a high-end sight. The sight retails for around $179.99, comes with 5 pins, and the archer can add additional pins if they need them. Take a hard look this season at the Eclipse Micro. You’ll be glad you did, and once you mount it on your bow, you’ll really be able to see why this sight is my personal favorite.
