Thread: New Shrewd sight

    New Shrewd sight

    Really impressed with the tooling and simplicity.

    I thought the sight tapes were the greatest idea in sights in a long time.

    Absolutely, Great Idea on the Sight Plates.. They were laser engraved black Aluminum plates that looked just like LAS Tapes.. They had a hole top and bottom where You could bolt them directly to Their new sight..

    I am vere impressed with Shrewd sight and will have it on my bow when I go to open class. In unlimited now but getting old eyes as my score from Fla proves. I bought the sight plate kit as soon as I saw it. Then I looked at the sight. The 3rd axis adjustment is the best thing since sliced bread IMO.

    Shrewd has some top notch stuff. I've been impressed with their v-bar and side bar mounts for a while and that scope housing they put out last year is really well thought out and well built. It doesn't surprise me that they'd have some great ideas and capabilities to put into their sights.

    That said, I don't own anything made by Shrewd.... not really sure why...

    I couldn't find it in their website. I've got an axcel on order from Lancaster and it keeps getting back ordered and I'm getting frustrated. If someone could post a link to this sight I would appreciate it.

    It's too new to have any real pics up on their site yet. Here are a few I snapped of it on my bow. So far I'm very pleased with how it performs. I don't think that they have any left except for a few that are going to Vegas. It retails for $325 and includes an entire set of the tapes, all screws or bolts needed to mount it and to mount your scope to it, and a spacer to go under the bow block in case you need more windage travel than what is available in the sight - if you need more right travel for a right handed shooter for example.

    The fletching glue they were selling is the best stuff I have ever found for blazer vanes. After fletching 2 arrows with them this weekend I tried to pull the blazers off this morning, and they will not budge. G Town or something like that is what it was called????

    You're probably talking about G-Team.....

    It's Glen Klawitter's stuff. https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/...ntures?fref=ts

    I haven't used it but I've heard good things about it. Of course, anything will make AAE's stick so I haven't been unhappy with any of the glues I grab and use.

    I used one of the 3DXL Shrewd for a couple of seasons and thought it was very well built sight and did it's job. I still run Shrewd scopes and have been extremely impressed with their scope and quality of the glass. With regards to the options of sights on the market, I have since switched to DS Advantage sights and the quality and machining which goes into them is that of a fine German watch. The quality you get in the DS Advantage sight for the price (very close to the Shrewd) put the two sights in completely different leagues.

    I held that sight at their trailer and it was sweet, to me it was example of shrewd taking a bullet proof cbe sight and just adding the shrewd magic to it. It was clean and precise and very well thought out and I want one. I wish I was good enough they would just give me one.

    That's the truth. The v-bar mounts adjust to just about any angle you can imagine and they are built solid. I love their scopes as well. I saw a prototype of the sight and also talked to the designer. If the final product is as good as the description I was getting from the designer it's going to be a top of the line sight especially at that price.

    Is that a magnifier on there? If so, that's a nice design as well.

    That is the new Shrewd rest in the pics and it is SOLID! No micro adjust but the machining is excellent and very tight. It takes the Best launcher.

    The magnifier is great with the sight tapes on there. They are also making a new set of tapes with marks only on the 2 yard increments. 0-2-4-6-8-10 etc.... Makes it easier to see where you really are on the tape. Each sight includes a spacer too that attaches between the bow block and the riser in case you need more travel toward your riser than what is built in.

    It keeps getting better and better.....

    New Shrewd sight

    I'm glad someone started this thread, I was blown away at how well thought out the shrewd stuff was, the new sight is the best I've seen come out this year and by far they have the best scopes, then I looked down and saw the new launcher and it is built like a rock, I will be setting up my new bow with all shrewd stuff , I like it that much, the pointer on the new sight is the best thought out in the industry and the simplest 3rd axis adjustment of any sight I've seen. Put all that together with some of the nicest most helpful people I have ever met and it's a winning combo. I really hope they let me become a staff shooter , gonna put in the app in Phoenix city
