Black Gold Sights
Black Gold makes quality compound bow sights with laser-engraved aluminum frame and beryllium sight housing. The Montana company's line of bows has a variety of models to meet different hunting needs. A popular signature feature of Black Gold bow sights is the PhotoChroma technology, which improves the brightness of the light that reaches the eye's pupil, reducing the light level at the fiber-optic ends of the sight's mounting rings in low light environments and increasing the number of photons reaching the pin ends in bright light conditions. PhotoChroma improves image clarity, color accuracy, and speed by reducing glare, heat, and eye strain. This technology also produces a clearer picture and eliminates red eye.
Another signature feature of the new Black Gold Sight is the patented Dot concealment system. Dot concealment sights use a tiny Dot cam to minimize the appearance of a bow mount. The cam and the metal housing are extremely heat resistant, preventing damage from corrosion or rusting. The Dot cam uses a high pressure source to provide high resolution, low reflectivity, and high contrast.
The photochromatic optics of most modern bow sights combine dual coating systems. The dual coating system allows the user to choose the best moment for using the new sight. It uses the latest wave tube technology and incorporates a locking mechanism for a sure fit. When mounting your scope, the patented Dot system will allow you to quickly change to a new angle without taking the mount off the receiver.
Unlike other archery mounts, the Black Gold sight incorporates a two stage lock and pin system. The first stage locks the pins so that they cannot be turned. The second stage provides the stability required for mounting a sight. The second locking pin is designed with a larger eye opening to accept the larger eyelet size of compatible pin inserts. The locking pins are designed to withstand a high stress environment including rapid firing and constant tension.
The third advantage of Black Gold adjustable sights includes an innovative adjustable lens. The adjustable lens allows the archer to focus on a specific distance area. This feature is very helpful when hunting because it eliminates the need to consistently move the sight in different directions. The adjustable lens is also designed to eliminate interference from wind at various distances. Most fixed sights have limited range of motion and this feature allows hunters to hit harder and longer at different ranges.
The Black Gold adjustable sights have an innovative dual axis adjustment system that gives users the ability to adjust the length up to four hundred times. This allows hunters to change the length at any time while on the bow. The second axis of adjustment is a one hundred and twenty degree, fixed angle that allows users to keep the bow at any direction while engaged in a shot. The third axis of adjustment is also located at a one hundred and twenty degree, fixed position that allows users to continue to rotate the bow in one direction. This feature is extremely useful when bow hunting as it eliminates the need for moving the bow across the field in order to adjust the length.
Another popular feature on many hunting adjustable sights are the magnetic pin brightness indicators. The innovative design of the Black Gold sight allows users to program two different levels of magnetic pin glow. The first level provides a higher level of glow when the archer is shooting towards their target. The second level of magnetic pin glow occurs when the bow hunter is not shooting. This system offers a great deal of versatility and is easy to program.
The overall length of most adjustable sights are between eight and ten inches. The threerd axis of operation can be adjusted through a full rotation. Many of the designs incorporate an eye level mounting system that allows users to increase or decrease the eye level when necessary. The mounting positions can also be changed to accommodate varying arrow lengths.
