SHIBUYA ULTIMA RCII
When SHIBUYA introduced the ULTIMA RC sight, we called it “the last sight you ever have to buy.” It has earned that moniker, more popular than ever after more than 10 years on the market.
However, our engineers have not been resting on their laurels. Based on the feedback of top shooters from all over the world, we have gone back to the drawing board on nearly every part of the ULTIMA RC sight, improving on the little details that make all the difference in a competitive situation.
The ULTIMA RCII retains all the best features of the ULTIMA RC, such as the patented X-Lock system, but offers some new and improved advantages:
Reduced mass weight and fine-tuned weight distribution
Weight is an important factor when competitive archers choose a new sight. The ULTIMA RCII sight weighs in at 204g (7.2oz). Since the bulk of the weight reduction is located at the target side, it feels even lighter once mounted on the bow.
In addition, the lighter weight results in significantly reduced vibration.
New and improved sight-pin

However, our engineers still found room for improvement: The UTLIMA RC II employs a new, conical washer to reduce loss of parts, and completely disconnects the screw threads from the sight pin to avoid thread damage or fusing.
Pressure-insert drive shaft

As a result, the ULTIMA RC II is the quietest, most consistent sight SHIBUYA has ever built!
