G5 Outdoors Optix XR2 Bow Sights
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.
