    The Ultima is a Sure-Loc esque type of sight which you adjust the sight block up and down with knobs on the sight rail. The Dual Click you just move the sight block up and down the track. Both excellent sights, I have a Dual Click Carbon Extreme on my indoor bow, never have a problem with it.

    One advantage of the Dual Click over the Ultima is that since the Ultima came to prominence the Dual Click was reduced in price by Shibuya making it a considerable bargain.

    both are great but I'd take the Ultima just because its easy adjustment, no need to tighten anything and finer adjustments (I think?).

    The Ultima Carbon is a really good piece of hardware, you won't be sorry.

    But I do feel I should mention - I think the Ultima Carbon should actually be about 25 more than its Dual Click predecessor. Worth it, IMHO. Where did you see it for the same price?
    Good judgement is a result of experience; experience is often the result of bad judgement.

    Bowsports has them for 125 each but as you mentioned in your pm it may just be an error on their website. Hopefully not and weve alerted everyone to a bargain

    The reason I got a Ultima Carbon is because of it's light weight.

    C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot. C++ makes it harder, but when you do, it blows away your whole leg...

    I'd choose the Ultima because it sounds nicer than Dual-click, it looks different from the K-Sight which everyone here has, and yes...
