• Definitely my favorite brand of sight. I have a Montana Black Gold Flashpoint, it’s one of the older models but is definitely one of my favorites. I like the Ascent and the adjustable pin. Great review as always Mark!

    Great review. Thinking about my custom sight with 4 pins and dove. What is the weight of Ascent with 3 pin Flashpoint head and 4″ dove? Why did you choose Flashpoint head (vs Vengence).? What factors you considered choosing head and pin guard size.?

      I chose the Flashpoint head because I didn’t feel that I needed the micro-adjust capabilities of the Vengence. Since my sight is only 3 pins, and since 20, 30, and 40 are very easy to adjust, then I figured why should I mess with micro-adjust? I can see how micro-adjust would be very helpful for dialing a long-range pin on a fixed-head sight, but my long range sighting is done via the Ascent slider mechanism.

      The BigDog (2″) sight housing size will almost certainly require a 1/4″ peep. I don’t like a peep that big, so I went with the standard (1-3/4″) pin guard, which I run with a 3/16″ peep.

      I’m not sure what the sight weighs, but I am pretty surprised with how light it feels compared to how heavy it looks. I’ll try and weigh it soon and report back.

      Let me know if you have any more questions.
