The new Phantom FG4 ($154.99) is another sight that helps prevent bow torque. Instead of pins, this sight uses a heads-up display with a feature called Triple Threat Reticle Technology. The fibers are wrapped around a frame, and the bright ends of the fibers, which are enclosed and protected, reflect off a "beam splitter coating" on the glass display.
To aim, you center your top pin or dot on a reticle on the glass display, and if you torque your bow even slightly, or your head and anchor are not in the correct position, the dots will not be centered in the reticle -- or they will disappear altogether.
The sight guard is not round, but that's not an issue for peep alignment because this system eliminates the need for a string peep. Each pin on the Phantom FG4 is adjustable to your setup, and a bracketing rangefinder lines the inside of the sight guard. This sight employs no electronics or batteries.
