Hiya guys

A couple weeks ago I bought a left handed Diamond Core bow and notice the stock 3 pin Apex sight is a out of allignment. I needed to adjust it a bit more to the right but it couldn't go any further, have anyone experienced the same issue? Many thanks.

Yes I have the same issue, what I did is putting 2 extra shim on the sight to make it reach out farther. I think apex gear sight is a lousy products.

Was hoping the Hijack rest would be the only flawed product, kind of sucks they gave us a rest that can't be alligned either : /

I really wish Diamond would do something with their RAK Package. Its nice to have a package bow for a good price but to put stuff on it that cant even be used it pointless Id rather be able to buy it bare bow for 50-75 less and they can keep the junk

This was my first bow, but still surprises me that they can mass produce a bow with a sight that can't be alligned, at least it's not too much of a loss considering the sight is so basic and cheap they don't even sell it in any store. Though I kind of like the Hijack rest with the spring suspension on it.

Yes I know I would rather have a bare bow for less money than throw junk on a good bow.

No issues at all. Can I get better? Sure but mine works just fine, no alignment issues.

My dead eye came with the Apex sight and octane pro rest. Never had any issues, but it may be the difference in bows?

The area of my bow's frame where the sight attaches to seems so close to the center, it's more like a compatible issue with the sight and the bow.

I just picked up the Core last week and my sight won't align to center shot either. I ordered a Trophy Ridge Outlaw for it. Cheap sight but has good reviews so I thought I would give it a try.
