The primary way X Sight archery glasses can help you become a better archer is by filtering light through different coloured lenses to enhance the target colours, backgrounds and light conditions.
Wearing the right lens for the right conditions can increase your awareness of the target, optimise the light, improve your visual acuity and aid in consistency.
The vast array of lenses released with the new 2RX model can be confusing to a first-time buyer. How do you know what they really look like and what effect they have on the target? In this video Sara Sherman from Anchor Point Passions in the USA goes over all the new features of the 2RX and the lenses to highlight what benefits they have what situations you should use them.
The side on aiming stance used in archery causes many archers problems during aim when using normal glasses or sunglasses. Frames, bulky nose pads and gaps between lenses can all present visual obstructions during anchor and aim, making the wearing of most glasses impossible for many archers. Until now…
The X Sight 2RX archery glasses utilise a large one-piece frame-less wrap around lens utilising a higher base curve than the original model to ensure the geometry of the lens encompasses your entire visual horizon, providing an unobstructed immersive experience.
A unique feature we have introduced to archers with positive feedback is the ability to use our lenses without a nose pad. By removing the nose pad the lens sits close around your nose giving you a completely unobstructed field of vision.
All other sports glasses feature fixed nose pads on the frame or lens which can be visibly seen throughout your shot and for many block the target all together.
Shooting in bright light without suitable light management will lead to eye strain and fatigue, resulting in a lack of mental focus and a loss of hand eye co-ordination. Squinting can cause subtle changes in facial muscle composition, which can affect your ability to replicate the exact shot sequence again and again leading to inconsistencies. X Sight archery glasses enable a relaxed optical shooting experience resulting in increased consistency and performance in bright light.
The geometry of our lenses combined with the built in ventilation bar provides maximum wrap around cover and protection for your eyes guarding you from distractions such as wind, rain and dust.
They also help by creating a barrier which reduces the rate of moisture evaporation from your eyes keeping your eyes comfortable and hydrated for the duration of your shooting.
At dusk when the light starts to fade, shooters will reap the rewards of extended shooting with the lighter lenses of the X Sight archery glasses as the brightness dial is turned up to the max. Ambient surroundings become brighter as the sun sets.
Significant development and testing has gone into producing our new range of lens colours, designed to give archers the best advantage possible.
Achieving the most noticeable colour contrasting results on the range has been the result of using rich mould injected colour pigmentation in our lenses, often combining multiple colour pigments to provide an intense filtration that can have a dramatic effect on your vision and help you focus on the gold.
Our lenses are made from high grade optical class 1 polycarbonate which has superb optics giving you a distortion free field of vision.
Wearing shooting glasses for archery can help save your eyesight in the event of an accident. Accidents are rare in archery but they do happen. Compound bows have exploded, recurve limbs have de-laminated, d-loops have broken, people have punched themselves, strings have snapped and people have had their eyes poked out whilst scoring and drawing arrows from the target.
The 2RX features thicker lenses to comply with EN166F European safety standards. They are made from impact resistant polycarbonate with a scratch resistant hard coating.
The primary objective and ethos of our brand is to offer excellent value shooting glasses for archery without compromising on quality and lens choice.
