X SIGHT REVIEW
Having sensitive eyes, I did a lot of squinting on the line. A friend loaned me a pair of shooting glasses made by another company and they really helped. While searching online for my own pair, I found the XSight glasses and decided to give them a try. WOW!!! They are amazing! They have actual side arms instead of a string, which blows the others away in the comfort category. They come with 4 sets of lenses for different conditions, which is awesome. One kit and your done! No need to worry about going out to buy more lenses. You can also get these features from the other brand, but at A MUCH higher price.
Now… to the shooting line. These glasses are extremely comfortable. There is no nose bridge to get in the way of your line of sight. There is also a nice wrap to keep sun from sneaking through. They have allowed me to shoot longer without eye discomfort. I only wish I had found them sooner. Do yourself, your eyes and your wallet a favor… Go XSight!
AN INTERVIEW WITH BREANA CANNON
When did you get into archery?
I started archery December 2015, mainly for something to do. I have always had a passing interest, but never pursued it. I was a photographer, but when both of my cameras were ruined and were too expressive to fix, I bought a compound bow. While shooting at the range, it was suggested I should try a compound bow. Because of a stroke few years earlier, I thought I wouldn’t be unable to draw one. After much coaxing, I gave in and tried a range bow and I loved it. I went out that week and found a bow at a pawn shop. From there, archery has become my passion. I sold the compound bow and bought a Hoyt Alpha Elite, which I shot for about a year. I then sold the Katera and bought a Podium and followed suit with selling the Alpha and bought another Podium. Again, archery is my passion, whether competing, teaching or just shooting for fun.
What do you enjoy most about archery?
So many things… Mainly it is a sport almost anyone can do. From young children to senior citizens, from people with disabilities to the strongest, there is a place I archery for you.
I also love the competition and camaraderie. I have met so many awesome people through this sport.
What has been your most memorable experience to date?
2017 National Senior Games 2017. Although I finished 6th place, I gained much valuable experience which I will be taking with me to future tournaments.
Earning my Level 1 instructor certification, which allows me to introduce and help others in the sport of archery.
What would be your best advice to upcoming archers?
To first have fun. If you want to go further, find someone who can teach you the correct way then practice, practice, practice!
What do you get up to when you’re not shooting?
I enjoy photography and getting out into nature. Spending quality time with my family.
Anything else to add?
I could never promote or recommend any product I didn’t fully believe in. I believe in these glasses and can promote them without guilt.
