    Is there anyone on here who has a Trophy Ridge React Sight on a ZXT or just owns one? I would like to know if it would be a big sight for the bow or does it even matter if the sight is big or not? I know someone who has the sight and it does look a little big. Just wondering if size of a sight matters in shooting accurately. Thanks in advance!

    To me, they are very big, heavy, and not necessary. They also have a huge aperture which is almost impossible to match a peep with. To me, nothing can replace shooting a known longer yardage to confirm pin settings, as well as executing the shot correctly by repetition.

    It is a cool technology built in to it. I have seen the sight and it is big and heavy compared to other sights. I’d like it if it were about half the weight and size.

    I’ve set up a trophy Ridge react on a bow before. The aperture is big and it required me to use a quarter inch peep to get the full aperture in the site window. But I will tell you this… It is a neat technology that absolutely works perfectly. I was blown away when I took a 60 yard shot and bullseyed it after only setting the 20 and 30 yard pins. Using the large aperture with a quarter inch peep allowed me to really get a good bright view of the target compared to the 1/8 inch peep and smaller aperture I’m used to shooting with. Thought I might not recommend that sight for any serious target shooting I would hunt with it in a minute. The downside to the sight is no second or third axis adjustment. I had to shim the sight I set up on my friends bow.

    They do make a single pin version as well and it looks much lighter and more typically sized though I haven’t held it in my hand.

    I love the technology and everything about it. No arguments there. I just wish they made a smaller frame or lighter one. I might still get it but the down side is that my bow would be heavier. I only plan to hunt with my bow. Thanks for the feedback!

    I have the React sight on My ZXT. At first I thought it was a huge sight. I would never take a shot past 40yards. Now I’m very confident to take a 60 yard shot. I’m gonna take that shot on a doe first.   Now the sight all your really doing is focusing on the pins. I have a G5 meta peep rear sight. It lines up perfect with the React sight go get it. You won’t be disappointed. I promise.  I won’t use any other sight now.
