The Easy Hit!! Fibre Optic Bead
The Easy Hit!! fibre optic foresight is contained within a specially designed and patented frame and simply butts up against the original muzzle end bead using 3M super adhesive tape.
The brain combines the messages from the 2D images from the right and left eyes to create a virtual 3D image that we see when we have both eyes open. This gives us the virtual binocular vision to accurately judge distance.
The brain, not our preference for right and left handedness decides which eye will have dominance and hence we end up with left, right or middle vision, which if not aligned to our choice of shoulder can seriously affect our results whilst shooting.
The effect often goes unnoticed or we are advised to close or put a patch over one eye.
In the opionion of Victor Scrooby, Sports Vision Optometrist, these remedies are less than perfect and do not allow us to get the best from our shooting experience and skill.
With any of the Easy Hit!! beads fitted, the wrongly dominant eyeis prevented from seeing any part of the fibre optic material. The Easy Hit!! bead gives the brain the opportunity to consistently select the eye over the ribb whether we are fresh, tired or even shooting in low light.
This leaves the brain automatically and naturally using the correct eye whilst we concentrate on the target.
How It Works
In fig 1 with no Easy Hit!! bead fitted the right shouldered shooter with a left cross dominant (or master) eye subconciously aligns her left eye with the bead, or the end of the barrel, and focuses on the target or the point she judges to be the correct lead.
The shooter has locked onto the centre of the camera lens showing the dramatic effect of her cross eye dominance. Right to left targets would be given too much lead and left to right targets too little. Driven and teal targets would be shot to the left. Left shouldered shooters will suffer the effects in reverse.
Right shouldered shooter with left dominant eye
In this illustration with no Easy Hit!! bead fitted the right shouldered shooter demonstrates a 'central,' 'shallow' or 'middle vision' affected eye. Again the shooter will subconciously align her eye with the bead, or the end of the barrel, whilst focusing on the target or the point she judges to be the correct lead totally unaware of the effect of her 'middle vision'
In fig 2 the shooter has locked onto the centre of the camera lens showing the more subtle and harder to detect effect of her eye dominance. Right to left targets would still be given too much lead and left to right targets too little. Driven and teal targets would again be shot to the left.
Again left shouldered shooters would suffer the results in reverse.
'Middle Vision' - neither eye appears dominant
|In fig 3 with the Easy Hit!! bead now fitted, this right shouldered shooter with a genuine strong dominant left eye, illustrates the beads correcting effect. The bead has convinced the brain to give presedence to the eye over the rib. The shooter will now naturally be using her correct eye to focus on the target or the point she judges to be the correct lead. |
She is shown here again locked onto the centre of the camera lens showing the effect of her corrected view. She can now confidently start to enjoy her improved results and gain experience, through practice, of correct lead in crossing targets and not shoot to the left (right for left shouldered shooters) of driven targets and teal.
