[/quote] I'm not saying that you were wrong . Maybe you could call again and get a different answer , but the guy I talked to was .... Ahh . I forgot his name but its the guy that does all the announcing at the Pro Ams and award presentations . [/quote]

That would be Mike Terrrell that you spoke to, he is the OWNER of the ASA.

This from the ASA rules:
Open Classes: May use any compound or recurve bow, sight, release, stabilizer or equipment unless specifically prohibited in any other part of these rules, or by a ruling of the Competition Committee. Overdraws do not designate shoot class or shooting style. Sight type and/or release type is the determining factors for all non-Open classes.

TNDeerGuy is right, I have heard both the National Director of the ASA, Dee Falks, and a member of the competition committee, Roy Duncan say that you can't use a moveable sight in non-open classes. Furthermore in 99 out of 100 cases when you show up to register for most shoots that moveable sight on your bow will place you in an open class. If you mistakenly move the sight you risk being DQ'd! Why take the chance?

I agree that this rule needs further clarification and I will pursue this in hopes that the rule is further clarified!

I completely understand what the rule book says , and I too have heard it both ways . I was just relaying the information I got when I called the ASA office a few days ago . They said you can use it as long as you don't move it . They said you do run the risk of being DQ'ed if it is moved . But he said he can shoot at a pro am in the novice or hunter class although he would be at a disadvantage .

There are a lot of sight manufacturers offering multi pin slider configurations. I'm thinking of going to a 3 pin slider. Wonder if ASA will reconsider in the future. I agree you shouldn't be able to adjust it during a shoot.

I shot a CBE Tek Hybrid, which is a slider sight and it had a housing that held fixed pins. I podium finished in Florida and they checked my bow, etc. No disqualification. So you CAN use the slider sights...as stated earlier, you just can't move them. They must be locked down.

There are lot of things manufactured....but they ain't all legal in all classes. There are some things you can't shoot even in an open class.

The next time you are at OHLBC, look up Roy Duncan. Everybody knows Roy! Roy, is one of (5) members of the competition committee that MAKE the rules and REVIEW and EDIT ASA rules, and review protests. Then look up Dee Falks the President of OHLBC and the National Director of the ASA. You can ask them about any of the rules and for clarification.

Most people who get really comfortable with a single pin slider have a hard time going back to a multi-pin sight picture and especially the older we get. Spot Hogg probably makes the best multi-pin slider out there!

There's always Open C to try................

What Ricky said about go once and you're hooked? Dat's da Truuf!
