    single pin vs multi pin sight

    just looking for some feed back on opinions here. I switched to single pin sight. Not sure how I feel about it.

    Shot a single pin for a long time and did just fine with it. I let someone talk me into getting a "new better" sight that had about five pins and I grew to hate it and stripped it to three and it's ok but I miss my one pin setup sometimes. A lot depends on what type of area you will hunt and how distracted you are by the additional pins. Will you remember which is the 20 or 30 or 40 pin when you have a nice buck in front of you. If you have a lot of thick areas and mostly close shooting with today's options of bows and so many arrow choices that get you shooting very flat, you can be fine with a single pin. You will have to use a little "Kentucky windage" but if you practice and know your set up you can do 30 yards no problem with just the one pin. I haven't changed back to the one pin because I don't want to switch up stuff and retune but when it's time for new string and cables it could definitely happen...lol.. Hell I am not really a fan of all these multi reticle scopes either, guess I am just simple like that...Good luck with whatever you decide and always remember to practice.

    always have used single pin and limited shots to 30 yards or less. especially if you have a newer bow with higher speeds and less POI fluctuation at those distances

    I always shot slow bows so a three pin set at 10,20,30 yrds. always worked well, but like others have said flat shooters are little different

    I shoot a single pin slider I wouldn’t think of going back to a multiple pin sight.
    I range trees at first light so I know the distances before deer come in this way I don’t have to fumble around with my range finder.
    No more aiming between pins or a few inches high

    Never shot a single pin. But I have shot a 3 pin slider. Now that I really liked. But I preferred my 5 pin fixed.

    In in the future I may go back to a 3 pin slider. 20, 30, and 40 set for hunting. Then my 40 pin would be my aim pin for the slider.

    check out HHA bow sights. Single cross hairs dial yardage. No hold over or under just dial in yardage and put cross hair on target.
