Re: HHA DS-5019 Ultra Bow Sight
Can't go wrong with HHA single pin sights. Not tough to set up, and you can make them as sophisticated as you want by adding 3rd axis knuckles or lenses for magnification.
There are a lot of threads on here already on HHA sights. You need to make 3 initial decisions- 1) do you want a slider style or the wheel style/ 2) do you want the large or smaller sight housing? and 3) what size pin do you want- .29, .19. or .10?
They use so much fiber optic that lights are not usually necessary. Personally, I use the .19 for hunting, with the smaller sight housing, and the slider style, and have the one with the "reostat" that slips in and out to control how much fiber optic is exposed for brightness of the pin.
Set up is simple, but I'd make sure you are very comfortable with your bow and are confident in your accuracy out to 40 yards. After that, there is a formula for which sight tape you need.They supply about 50 sight tapes with the site. If you change arrows, or draw weight, or anything on your bow, it will affect the sight tape.
I usually recommend guys go with the plain white tape with pencil marks for their 20-25-30, etc, until they have shot the bow and sight for a while. Then once they are lock in on their measurements, then put the multicolored sight tape on to match the marks.
