Mathews’ Bridge-Lock Technology has become the hottest ticket in archery, and Trophy Ridge is meeting that demand with the new through-the-riser Bridge-Lock Digital React Sight. This Trophy Ridge sight uses the company’s React Technology to quickly establish exact pin gaps for various yardages and eliminates sight-in guesswork completely. The Digital React single-pin features an LED screen that supplies a digital read-out of targeted distances, allowing archers to sight in through a SPEED method—requiring one arrow be fired through a chronograph—or the conventional REACT method. The SPEED method requires an accurate arrow speed to mathematically set the distances between pin indicators. Once sighted in, archers can dial distance down to half-yard increments using the control wheel on the sight housing. The single-pin sight holds .010 or .019 diameter pins.

Pulse Archery 

Bowhunting and Archery Gear

Bowhunting and Archery Gear – The Auto Rest Arrow Rest by Pulse Archery is a patented design that guides arrows longer and retracts faster. After the shot the Auto Rest resets itself automatically for the next shot. Unlike conventional drop-away arrow rests, the triggering cable on the Auto Rest attaches to the up cable or can be limb activated, meaning the launcher remains up and ready, as well as guiding the arrow longer to provide superior guidance and accuracy. The power retract mechanism engages and then pulls the launcher away up to five times faster than conventional spring-loaded arrow rests, providing maximum fletching clearance and straight arow flight. At the end of the cycle, the internal rotary damper continues to apply pressure on the launcher, holding it down on the bow shelf until the arrow passes completely. The launcher then returns to the ready position automatically. The rest is tested to arrow speeds of more than 400 fps. Visit pulsearchery.com to learn more.
