Versatile yet simple design. The G5™ Outdoors Optix™ XR2 Bow Sight features one Generation 2.0 Smart-Pin™, a floating hybrid Smart-Pin, 3x micro adjustments, corrosion-resistant components, harmonic damper, built-in visor, arrow bumper, and third-axis tuning.
Manufacturer model #: 226.
Micro-adjust system for elevation, windage, and every pin
Three Generation 2.0 Smart-Pins
Floating hybrid Smart-Pin
Equipped with state-of-the-art Smart-Pin™ technology, all Optix sights feature a micro-adjust system for elevation, windage, and every pin. Smart-Pins enable a quicker, more accurate bow set up. By turning just one screw, each Smart-Pin can be adjusted vertically without ever leaving the centerline and then locked down. Clever design influences the construction as well. Each sight is made from magnesium—which is as strong as aluminum but one-third lighter—for its superior vibration-dampening properties. Set your sights on intelligent hunting and take a G5 Optix sight along on your next trip!
I am finding that with fast bows(pse omen) it is really hard to set that initial top pin. with some changes it could be a really nice sight. not much of a fan and will be getting a different sight.

Hate to do it, but I had to go 4 stars
I purchased this sight about 6 months ago and overall enjoy it. I find it a great blend of a simple and open single pin design incorperated with a seperate pin for longer shots.
The build quality is top notch, I find no short cuts out of any of my G5 products. This would include a Smoke bow, quiver and T3 broadheads.
HOWEVER!!! I have to admit that the (FP) floating pin has a tendency to make a little bit too much noise. If the FP is all the way down its silent. If its all the way up its silent but after a few shots in the up position, it developes a little bit of play in the mechanism, which in turn causes a pretty good noise.
At first I thought it was the fiber spool. So I removed it and placed a rubber O-ring between the spool and arm. This did not solve the problem.
I contacted G5 who has been great in assisting me. We worked together and I have been trying several different methods to keep the play out of the FP. I placed a rubber band around the two screws which make the pivot and fulcrum of the FP arm. This keeps a slight bit of tension on the mechanism but due to the gearing of the adjustment, I cannot tell its there when adjusting the pin.
Before you get bent out of shape because I had to put a rubber band on my 200$ sight to keep it quiet, almost all high quality sights on the market use rubber dampeners to remove/absorb vibration. This was a small bump in the road and the quality and excellent design idea which makes up the sight is well worth it.
I will admit that I seem to be the only one that has had this issue. There is a possibility that my sight could have a defect. That said, my father in law has the same sight and his does not make the same noise, but he is not shooting the same bow and at a much lighter poundage.
The rep from G5 has offered to contact him after this current deer season and we will work on solving the issue.
The sight is top notch in my opion and this goes for all other G5 products I am using. Great products, great service.

After 25 years of shooting instinctive I have changed to a sight and a release. After much research this was the sight I purchased and I am so glad I did. With one set pin I am able to still let my instinctive skills work with the sight. Whether it's 10 yards or 30 yards, I am deadly with just the one pin. I will use the "floating" pin for shots beyond 30 yards.
The sight is one of the easiest I have seen to adjust. The adjustments are micro and adjust with a simple turn of a small knob. G5 has really came up with a good thing here.

Gives the Best of Both Worlds
Yes this sight is expensive but it truly is an awesome device. Sight that first pin and then turn the dial for the second pin to set the 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 yard. Great construction and I cannot wait to use this product this hunting season. Great Job G5.

The XR2 isnt a single pin sight. Its a combination single pin and multi pin sight. Basically you use the top pin which will remain stationairy as your 20 yard pin. Then set your moving pin for 30,40,50 +.
The best way to set this sight is to move th floating pin all the way up and then tune it to shoot 30 yards by moving the entire sight. Once that is set, you will bring the stationary pin up or down to make your 20 yard pin. Now with the floating pin all the way up, you will have 2 pins (20 & 30 yards) which will take care of 80% of your hunting needs. There is a dial in the side that as you spin it the floating pin will lower. Once you set your 40 you will mark the dial. This goes for your 50,60 and even 70 if you have enough adjustment.
generally a single pin setup is on a sliding set up with a yardage tape. You set it for the desired distance and hold dead on. However this particular sight has one pin that is fixed and is sighted in for a fixed distance and one adjustable pin for random distances.
