    SPIGARELLI CARBON 30 SIGHT

    I haven't found this on the forum, so may I ask, has anyone any experience of this sight, and would be happy to share their thoughts??

    I used one for several years. It's a good enough sight, but there are some quirks...
    leaving aside the issues common to sights with the track at the handle end, the one thing I really had to beware of was the sight block "self adjusting". The vibration of the shot can cause the sight block to shift backwards or forwards along the bar, as it's only held by friction.
    Adding a shim to the block to allow it to be tightened a bit harder largely eliminated that.

    Note: I believe there have been at least a couple of different versions of this sight. My comments apply to one with a square profile sight extension and not the triangular one I've also seen.

    The latest version has a screw - it cannot move.

    That's the one I have. Thank you all for your feedback......
    Apart from the fact that it wasn't too......expensive, I liked the idea of the track on the riser and just the rod and sight out in the breeze. Everything seemed??? to lock securely with nice course or fine sight adjustment on ratchets....?
    I have found that the thing about bits coming loose a problem on a couple of sites I've had, not super posh ones, but I bought the Decut in the hope of negating most of that....which it mostly did...mostly.
    For me, I consider this one super posh!! Interestingly, the riser screws supplied to mount the site track on the riser, were the wrong thread to fit on my....Spigarelli!!!

    I have yet to shoot with it.

    I've been using one for quite a while, mine has the screw holding the sight block in place - the worst thing I found were the instructions were badly translated, they said something like "to quickly adjust the vertical, push the control dial aside" which translated to unscrew the vertical locking thumb screw and pull the larger dial out a few mm to disable the click to move it quicker. Then push it back in to micro adjust and tighten to lock. I must have done 15000 shots and never had anything come loose.

    I have one. I like to have the weight close to the bow and the mechanism is very smooth. I also like the idea of removing just the extension when packing away, less to fiddle with. There are no fiddly little screws to come loose and get lost.
