    This is thing is amazing!!! I shoot a traditional PSE black hawk 60# recurve with plunger and fliper rest 2 and "SRF C aperture" this aperture made my shooting like Robin Hood I shoot from 10 to 70 yards for practice and no compound can mess with me in target aquisition without a range finder every time just remember to aim "through" the string and you will be shocked your anchor will change from traditional to target competition. I am truly amazed with this apeture recommend C aperture for a 60# recurve to shoot 10 - 40 yards+

    The bolt that mounts it to the bracket on the bow was too short, and no matter how snug I'd mount the products, it added a buzzing noise upon release. The customer sevice agent did mention that it is a 'training aid' and 'not really a sight'. I'm am in total agreeance. Thedescription does read 'Hunting Sight', and after reading the other reviews on it, I decided to go for it, since so many others wrote of improvements. My shots and grouping became and stayed significantly worse with the use of this product. Once it was removed, the accuracy returned.
    I feel and think that this device is perhaps best as a 1st-time-beginners aid, and can best help in developement of eye-hand coordination/accustomization of target aquisition, for those who haven't had any previous experience.
    I can immagine that it could render a benefit to those who experience optical challenges.
    I do give kudos for this inovative device. It's quite a creative concept.

      Comments about SRF Sighting System - Optical Flat Black:

      Took just 5 shots at 20 yards to set zero where I wanted it.. then nothing but center shots. Have only used a recurve for 2 months, hunting is around the corner, and I was missing 2 out of 5 shots. I didn't feel very confident. The sight picture this provides was just enough to string killzone shots in the first afternoon. Going to go ahead and start learning my shot picture at different ranges for the rest of these weeks I have to practice, but I can say at least .."I got this at 20 yards" - Thats a huge leap for me.

        Never shot traditional before and after 10 minutes I had baseball sized groups at 25 yards. Amazing! Can't wait to hit the whitetail woods.

          A great little sighting system that helps you build confidence in 'every' shot but is still simple to use for hunting.

            This sight is very well made and looks to be bullet proof. It works very well for it's intended purpose. It's as close to a pin sight as you can get. The only downside is that you must keep your target perfectly centered in the aperture, or you will miss. I bought the smallest size, and it transcends about an 18" circle at 20 yards.

            Comments about SRF Sighting System - Optical Flat Black:

            In trying to master bare bow instinctive shooting I hit a wall. I really couldn't be confident in why I missed the bull. I tried a standard pin sight, but it was too bulky, though very helpful. I just needed assurance during aim that I was getting my visual sight picture right so I could be sure what technique adjustments were needed. This sight is not like a peep but helps greatly to get the measure of your visual picture and memory of the shot. Sort of like a very large peep. So if I've got a good sight picture but miss left by six inches it's technique and not "did I really aim there?"

            With bare bow, I often couldn't be sure about my sight picture. I miss six inches left, and I think, maybe I aimed there. Much smaller and less bulky than compound-bow style pin sights, I really like the product. Adjusts easily and perfect for visual memory of a shot.

              Comments about SRF Sighting System - Optical Flat Black:

              When I bought the SRF aperture and E bracket I was pretty skeptical. I wanted something that would be practical for hunting and now believe I have found it. It literally took 2 shots to get is centered for the correct left and right. After that, I just adjusted to where 15 yards was right in the middle of the aperture. After a few shots it became second nature. I also tried it right before dark and was impressed. Even without the lume coating the sight could still be picked up. It is really as simple as picking a spot and framing it with the aperture. The SRF will be on one of my hunting rigs this year!

                I purchased the size "A", what it has done is improve my form. Any flaws in the form are magnified when using the sight window. The only issue is when you're using a non-adjustable sight bracket you need to make sure the sight window is centered on the distance you want to shoot. I attached it with duct tape until I found the elevation I wanted for 20 yards then attached the bracket. It took a couple of sessions to not focus on the sight instead of the target, but then it all came together. I'm shooting the best groups I've ever shot.

                The sight functions as advertised and is easy to adjust. I have had problems with the "stick on" mounting system, however. In three weeks of use, I have twice had to reapply the sight mounting plate with new double back tape and go through the sighting-in process again. I would recommend buying one of the permanent mounting brackets versus the stick-on, and modifying the host bow to accommodate the bracket.

                    Comments about SRF Sighting System - Optical Flat Black:

                    I was getting pretty consistent with no sights, as I've just recently switched from wheels to a recurve. At 20 yards I was able to get most of my arrows on a paper plate but not consistently. I suspected it was my arrow sighting as it's difficult to look down and try to get that tip just right, in my aging eyes. I bought this hoping it would tighten my groups and after one day of shooting it, it did. However it did it for a different reason than I thought. It showed me that my inconsistency is my form and not my arrow alignment. By allowing me to quickly sight in, this site allows me to concentrate on the subtleties of my form and grip and my shooting has become much better in only a few sessions.

                    I had some problems mounting the site, as it comes with absolutely no instructions or guidelines and I almost mounted it incorrectly but by pure chance, I am able to use it as I placed it on the bow.

                    I recommend this even though like most traditionalists, I can see the self satisfaction in not shooting any sites at all. I decided that for me personally though that ethically hitting the animal I'm shooting at far outweighs my own ego. Also, even if you take it off later, it's a great training tool to eliminate the sighting factor of shooting and concentrate on form.
