Field Logic brings impressive technology to their IQ 5 pin sight. If you are looking for a sight with awesome pin customization and cutting edge technology, this is the sight to check out. The IQ Retina Lock will literally change the way you shoot and for the better, if you give it a chance and understand its purpose. This can be overwhelming for some users, especially beginners. However, once you have mastered multitasking between pins and the Retina Lock you will be shooting tight groups and from further than you thought possible - that is Field Logic’s money back guarantee.
Technology on the IQ 5 Pin Sight
The most noteworthy feature of the IQ 5 pin sight is its Retina Lock technology. Field Logic claims that it controls muscle memory, form, and consistency. The concept behind it is to provide the archer feedback and reveal torque and changing anchor points.
It will make apparent the flaws in form and shooting style and guide an open-minded archer towards better shots. This can be frustrating, as rarely do people like to be shown where they are going wrong. Keeping that in mind, the Retina Lock will be a boon to target shooters and hunters who are willing to embrace it.
Field Logic’s motto for this IQ sight is “center the dot for the perfect shot.” This is what makes the Retina Lock a bit tricky for beginners. Not only do you have to focus on five pins, but there is also a green dot at the top of the sight that you have to line up and pay attention to. It can be a lot at once to manage. But the results are worth the effort, as many IQ bow sight reviews have pointed out unbelieveable improvements in their shooting thanks to the Retina Lock.
How Adjustable is the Sight
The adjustable .019 fiber optic stack tight pins really lend to the versatility of this IQ sight. All five of the pins can be positioned to the needs of the archer. Having this amount of control and customization allows the user to sight very specific distances for their particular shooting style. However, the pins cannot be realistically removed. Technically it is possible, but it is a huge hassle to deal with the long fiber optic cables.
Ultimately, the pins are not meant to be removed. That means you are stuck with five pins. However, some IQ bow sight reviewers recommend using the adjustability of the pins to push the bottom two down as far as they will go and setting the other three. This provides for a much clearer picture if you prefer less clutter and fewer pins. Either way, however you choose to set your pins, the IQ has a generous amount of control over the fibers.
Thoughts on the Sight Design
Overall, the IQ design is very compact and sleek with vibrant green accents to help set it apart. It features locking micro knobs for adjusting windage and elevation, no tools required. The locking toggle knobs keep your settings in place without having to worry about them shifting subtly over time while maneuvering your bow through rough terrain and up and down tree stand ladders.
Also included is a built in level at the bottom of the sight enclosure. The Retina Lock and fibers are powered by gathering light at the top of the sight. However, batteries may be needed during low light hours.
IQ 5 Pin Sight Conclusion
There is no denying that the IQ sight will improve groups and increase confidence in shooting further distances. The Retina Lock is an invaluable technology, especially for archers who are looking to improve their form and reduce torque. That being said, there are IQ bow sight reviews that caution the overall quality of the enclosure.
Some users have experienced a wandering retina dot and find their adjustments tend to change while transporting the bow to and from the range. The other caveat is that the pins are not bright enough during early dawn and dusk lighting. This makes the rheostat IQ light, sold separately, an almost necessary purchase for some hunters. Given the price point of this sight, some would expect an adequate light to be included.
