1 pin sight ?

I have the tru-glo 5 pin fiber optic sight on my Martin saber.
I will finish this season out with it but for next season I am looking for a good 1 pin set up
any one recommend a good 1 pin sight that really stands out for older eyes
I only use 1 pin now on the tru-glo I have the other 4 pins are off the sight

Re: 1 pin sight ?

try hindsight. all i use no more peep should b good for old eyes. you can remove extra pins, save for replcements. i would not use any other sight. once you shoot a deer in low light that you know you could not have seen through peep. they also sell rear sight alone to complement your existing sight

Buy a Trophy taker top pin and remove the other two pins.

HHA Optimizer. I have an OL5500. When you open the rheostat on the fiber, it looks like there's a light bulb in the sight pin. The 5500 has an 0.023" (or something like that) pin, which target shooters won't like, but you can NOT miss it in the woods when you're hunting. I'm 33, and my eyes are still fairly sharp (I hunt sometimes with a Krag-Jorgensen or M1903 rifle, both of which have famously bad fine open sights), but I still love that HHA sight.

HHA has fantastic customer service, too. They're not the cheapest sights out there, but they're tough, they work, they're bright, and are supported by great CS.

+1 on HHA. I have been using it for two years and have come to love it. Sight it in well and know your distances in the woods and it makes things simple.

Re: 1 pin sight ?

I was actually just going to post a question about 1 pin sights. I have an old altier peep sight that I want to put on my bow. I find that multiple pins are confusing to look at and are usually unneeded. ! pin at 30 yards is good. You just have to know when to aim a little high or low.

Re: 1 pin sight ?

Not if you use a sliding sight, like the HHA (others make them, too). I have a "fan" on the back of the sight with marks for 20-60 yards in 10 yards increments with "half" marks between. Set the indicator to the yardage you are shooting, put the pin where you want the arrow, and let 'er fly!

I set my HHA to 20 yards in the treestand. Keeps me on the mark up close, and I know it's only 2" low at 30 set that way. Beyond 30, if I don't have the time to adjust the sight properly, I don't have the time to take the shot.

I have an HHA and agree that it's a great moveable sight.I have used it for hunting but I prefer a sword with 4 pins.Also,I'd rather shoot the bowhunter class is 3D so the HHA is out.Definately a great sight however.
