    Compound sights ?

    General question really but apart from the obvious scope is there much difference between the sight bodies ? Could I use my recurve sight body on my compound bow ?

    Cheers

    I use my recurve sight on my Elite XLR. the sight is a full length CopperJohn.

    Some recurve sights won't hold up to the forces a compound will impart on it through vibration, the weight of the scope, and the two combined. Some like the Copper John, Skorten Lok-solid etc will be suitable for both.
    If archery was easy, everyone would shoot. as it is, there are some of the best people who shoot - those who can control their own minds!!!

    I was thinking of this sight Decut Recurve Archery Sight, its what i use on my recurve and seems solid enough to take a lot of abuse, obviously changing the pin to a scope ..

    just looking at it I would not - it looks too lightly constructed to me. you would also need a holder for a 10/32 rod.
    The truth hurts, doesn't it?

    You can use a compound sight on a recurve but not really the other way around
