Sure-Loc Lethal Weapon-1 Bow Sight

Recommended Posts

N7709K

I am kinda new to this forum, but I could use some advise. This past Thanksgiving I purchased a Diamond Triumph package, in 60#. I was online the other day looking at bow sights. I like this sight, but it is one the expensive size, $209.99. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this sight?

First off welcome to FishingMinnesota and HotSpotOutdoors...

Great to have you with us.

Sure Lock is one of thel eaders in the site industry, i'm not so sure they make a bad product. I am not familiar with the site you mention, I did do a google search on it and it looks pretty darn cool! You can probably get by not spending that kinda money.. but if you have the moolah,, why not? My only worry would be how fragile the fiber pins would be.

I also found it online for $180

If you will be using the sight for hunting the #2 or maybe even #1 thing I would look for is how protected the fiber optics are. One stick or branch while walking or hauling your bow up to the stand could take out every fiber you have and then what???? I really won't get into brand naming but there are plenty of them out there that protect or at least support the fiber from the tip of the pin to the end. SureLoc are great sights but personally I feel they are a bit better suited for 3D and targets. I did a quick look online and from the pictures it's hard to tell if the fibers are at all supported all the way to the pin tip. I know when I looked at Sureloc's 2 or 3 years ago they were not supported. I haven't seen one in person since so they might have changed but it's too hard for me to tell from the pics online. For that kind of money though, I'd look at the spothogg line with hoggwrap ;\)

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
