Good sight made even better for 2012. You get your second and third axis adjustments. I will be shooting one at the bowcast shoot for 2012. I will probably go with the Ascent 5 pin slider for that shoot. There are some long yardage shots. I would be surprised if you didn't like it.

I had one this year. It seemed like it would be a good sight with its adjustments like the CBE Tek Hunter. I didn't care for the size of the small bubble in the level and it rattled upon the shot. I also bought the light kit for it and it would never screw in tight enough which also caused noise on the shot. I ended up selling it for a $50 loss and got a CBE Tek Hunter which is much better built IMO. Maybe I just got a bad one because I have read that many people do like this sight. This was just my experience.

I use a CBE 3-D micro lite on my 3-D bow....and on my spot bow I have a CBE 3-D XL. But on my hunting bow....not sure I want a CBE.
Seems abit big.....I have a HHA Optimizer lite now.
But with a tightspot quiver Im told the HHA's wont work, or if you use posts...then the quiver is to far out from the riser and defeats the purpose of the tightspot.
I thought maybe the Ascent was more in line size wise with the HHA?
But maybe Im wrong?

I love mine for hunting. I have the one up pin on it and it is great. I have had to make yardage adjustments with it and it was a breeze. Only sight I'll be using for some time to come!

I have a MBG Ascent and the only negative I have is that it's heavier than my Flashpoint and doesn't offer micro-adjust windage. MBG tells me they will be posting the weight of all of their new sights on the 2011 website. They also will be offering more features for the Ascent like was said earlier. Nevertheless, the sight is very beefy, works very smoothly and mine has no vibration issues at all.
