    Does using a sight lens kit (i.e. HHA Feather Vision 2x or 4x lens), in general, change the point of impact as compared to no lens?¬† I’ve never used one, but I’m thinking about giving it a try.¬† Is there anything else I should be concerned about?¬† I’d appreciate any feedback.¬† Thanks.

    p.o.I. can change slightly, but it’s because you can see the target better. depending on your eyesight and the power of the¬†lens you use, you may need a clarifier in your peep to clear up the target thru your scope.

    The verifier is for clearing up pins with no lens in scope(sight).

    Don’t forget to check out the Axcel line of target sights.

    I have both the Sureloc and the Axcel. The Axcel has a larger windage adjustment — useful if you switch releases and thus change your anchor point slightly.

    Both have full three axis leveling.

    The Axcel has a ¬†.0156″/click adjustment.
    Check out the way the scopes mount and the adjustability of the orientation of the pin.
    If you need a clarifier, you will find you need a larger pin. And you may find you need a light for the pin.
    As an alternative, consider using a dot on the lens instead of a pin.
    You might also consider using a circle instead of a dot or a pin. You “aim” by centering the X spot in the middle of circle on your lens.
    Lens? ¬†Consider the “power” of the lens. ¬†The higher the power — the more “zoomed” in you are on the spot. ¬†But you also “see” more movement in relation to the spot — which can lead to target panic.
    Too much power for 3D, and you can find it hard to find references on the target. The same power might be ok on a spot target with high color contrast.
    Stay true to your form and execute smoothly.
