Sight Recommendations

I have a $40 truglo four pin sight I have been using for well over a decade. With getting older my eyesight isn’t what it once was and my shooting has declined some because of it. Not trying to make it out that I am way off but I am definitely not as accurate as I was 5 years ago. Thinking of switching to a single pin sight. Having extra pins in the sight picture seem to be throwing me off a bit and under certain conditions I get a glare. Can anyone suggest a good sight ? What are the pros and cons of using a single pin ? I also welcome any suggestions other than a single pin sight. Looking to keep it under $150.
Thanks

Which ever sight you decide on, make sure it has 0.010 pin. If you are looking to do any longer shooting such as 3D it is a must. The larger pin obscures bullseye.

I've had a bunch over the years but recently put an IQ 3 pin micro on my bow.It's the real deal.

Everyone's perspective is different I went back and fourth between a single pin slider and a 3 pin fixed over the years but always went back to the 3 pin.I have a Black Gold single pin ascent sitting around collecting dust.

Try using your pins the way you do a 6 oclock iron sight picture. Can use any size pin this way.

Try the new Tru Glo Range Rover Pro adjustable single dot sight. Has a 7 brightness adjustable illuminated dot in the center. Has around 80 different sight yardage tapes with it to be able to calibrate to nearly any bow out there.. I like the one I just got and the different brightness setting make it great from daylight till pitch black out... good luck

I like the CBE sights / pins. The SL4 is a nice sight for the money. And with those sights, the .019 is fine for whatever you are shooting IMO.

As for the multiple pins, I recently had to add a verifier to my peep. The pins were getting blurry and looking very large. Making the pin gap look closer than it was.

If you want to step up a notch, the TL3 is a movable multiple pin sight...best of both worlds.

Why do they call it common sense when it is so rare.

I've been using HHA single slider sights for almost 20 years now and I like them. I have an Optima Lite on my Heli M and a Kingpin Lite on my Vertix. Of course it's personal preference.

An archer shoots his targets as far as he can. A bowhunter shoots his target as close as possible.

Another vote for HHA.

I have one on both my bows and have been using their products for at least 20 years at this point.

Love their sights.

I prefer the HHA single .010 pin in the 2 inch housing for deer. The 2 inch housing gives you more fiber optics, a larger field of view and aligns better in a 1/4 peep for hunting. Single pins aren't for everyone and you have to know your bow and how to hold in situations when a deer is moving. Been using one for years and always set mine at 25 yards or 20 in some set ups and have never had to move it to kill a deer. If you set it at 25 yards that will take care of any deer that's under your tree to 35 yards or so without moving it and that's 99% of your shoots in Pa. Anything longer than that I would use a range finder on the deer and move the pin accordingly.
