Hello. I'm about to upgrade my sight and thinking about shibuya ultima or dual click. Has anyone tried both? Grateful to have your advice.
By the way I've been shooting for almost a year and at the moment I'm using the SF junior sight.

Both very good sight..only difference is the dual click has a thumb screw which needs to be unlocked anytime you wish to adjust. With the ultima you'll only have to twist the top part.
You won't regret choosing a shibuya. I personally have the ultima and love it to bit...never ever had any trouble with it.
YES...although the dual click is very well built, it can be a trouble to unscrew the thumb lock adjust your sight then locking it again. With the ultima you either turn the knob or push and slide. I definitely do not regret getting the ultima over the dual click. And its a sight that you can keep for years and years and is requires minimal maintenance.
To give another perspective;
I have had both for a number of years, and while I very much like the ultima, I am a little disappointed with it. After 4 years of use the Ultima is feeling distinctly worn and sloppy, the click adjusters in particular have become uneven, tight on one side loose on the other. While the dual click, which I have owned and used for longer, still feels good and solid.
While I think they are both great sights; If I was buying a replacement today, I think it would be a dual click.
If only keeping it simple wasn't so complicated
The thumb screw itself does not bother me. I have a WinWin WS600 with the same system and it works very well and it is not that harder to adjust than the Ultima (that I have on my other bow - TBH I like the WS600 better).
I bought the Dual click with aluminum extension arm and I sold it right away because I just could not make it stop vibrating against the riser mounting block no mather how hard I tightened it. Maybe the one with carbon extension works better but then the price difference is not that high as far as I remember. If you can afford the Ultima, go for it. However (on a second thought) the Carbon Dual click has the advantage of being simpler mechanicaly and as archer_dk pointed out above, less things to wear and get loose.
