Oracle Rangefinding Bow Sight

The Oracle laser-rangefinding bow instantly calculates and shows the exact aiming point for any distance and shot angle.

The Oracle will learn the trajectory or drop for two different arrow configurations and will accommodate up to 176 inches of drop at 100 yards. Most bow set-ups will be able to achieve 80-110 yards depending on bow speed and arrow weight.

The Oracle bow sight automatically detects when the sight is mounted for a left-handed bow and reverses the LED readout.  One CR123 battery powers the sight for 1,000-2,000 cycles.

I've read all your reviews and Questions but haven't heard anything about how the unit performs in Rain and snow. Does the Rain on range finder lenses effect it in an way? is the sight water proof by O'ring seal ? thanks for your time.

Asked by: Illinois 01
Hello, The sight is waterproof. However the range finder shares the same inherent limitations of all range finders. You could find it difficult to range targets in snow or heavy rain, and fog. One thing we recommend is to ensure the lens that the beam is from is kept clean. Rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip every now and then will help keep debris from building up.

How many led "dots" are there on the upright post? Any chance at long range there are not enough dots to keep from having high and low misses?

Asked by: windwalker
Hello, There are 52 LEDs on the post. As far as your next question, our Engineering dept did extensive testing to understand optimal ranges for calibrating SR1 and SR2 to provide best fit (one size fits all) solution from 5 to 100yards (SR1=40 and SR2=60 provided best results). You can use SR1=30(minimum) and SR2=40(minimum) if uncomfortable shooting long distance or incapable of shooting long distance consistently. However, this calibration will not provide the best solution at 100yards. Engineering recommends that shooters planning on extensively using the sight beyond 80yd set their SR2 further out that 60yd for best results.

How long does it take after pushing the range button does it take to show pin & range? How long does the pin stay on & is there a setting to adjust how long it stays on? In fixed pin mode is there a on/off option to keep pins displayed until turned off?

Asked by: Sargentsss10
Hello, The scope displays your range and holdover immediately after pressing the range button. There is no delay. The scope will remain lit, and with a holdover dot for 90 seconds after depressing the range button. There is not an on/off option for the fixed pin mode. It will stay illuminated for 90 seconds after entering FPM.

Can you add a lens (needed for eyesight) or will that interfere with yardage finder?

Asked by: Stonewall22
There is no way to add a lens to the Oracle. In fact it was specifically designed without a lens to lessen the chance of something fogging or cracking.

What’s the maximum range you take a shot with this?

Asked by: KeithJ7669
It really just depends on your bow/arrow setup. There is a fixed amount of space below the 20yd pin for arrow drop compensation. A 340fps IBO bow with a 500gr arrow will be able to shoot further than a 270fps IBO bow will with the same arrow. My Oracle provides an aiming dot out to exactly 100yards with my personal setup (Mathews Triax 72# and 28" draw with a 485gr arrow ). I have another bow (358fps IBO) that is an 81lb draw @ 29" that provides an aiming dot all the way out to 130yards.
