HHA DS-5019 Ultra Bow Sight

In the market for a single pin sight and have been told by a few people that this sight is really good. Anybody using this sight or other HHA models? I'm new to the single pins and was wondering how difficult it is to set up? From what I understand its not that hard.

Check out the trophy ridge single pin sights. They are great sights for alot less. Just my 2cents.

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.

Wishing I was at camp!

Re: HHA DS-5019 Ultra Bow Sight

What he said^^^^^^^^^^
I have an HHA on my diamond and it was not hard to set up and once set up just as easy to adjust for yardage - if you have the time -
I had a group of doe come into the patch I was hunting. Had my slider to 20 yds. - unfortunately they took a turn and headed out the other trail instead of coming into my 20 yd shooting lane. Now being at full draw it was impossible to adjust the slide. So as they crossed into my 40 yd lane I had to manually adjust my hold over and was successful.
Point is - the sight is great. But don't count on being able to adjust it all the time. Put in some practice using manual hold over like as if you had a multi pin sight. I would set my sight on 20 and then shoot other yardages to see where I was hitting. I know there will be some that tell you. Set it on 25 and , depending on your bow set up, you should be able to have a kill shot from 5 - 40 yds so having an adjustable sight is not necessary. But it sure is nice when you do have the time to adjust.
Good luck to you and practice, practice, practice!

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog!
If it's locked up and put away - Your NOT safe!

Re: HHA DS-5019 Ultra Bow Sight

HHA sights are very good quality but I feel much more comfortable with a three pin.I used an HHA for sevral years and on a couple of occassions,ranged deer that were out there quite a ways and killed them.I've also lost opportunities as well as shot way over the backs of targets at 3D shoots because I forgot to adjust the sight back down.

Re: HHA DS-5019 Ultra Bow Sight

I know this is about single pin, but what about a multi pin gang slider? I have a spot hogg 5 pin that shifts all pins when turning the wheel. (5 pins was a bit much, I should have went with 3) Also, a more affordable option of the same style is the blackgold sights. I am not sure if this is what you are looking for but though I would throw it into the conversation.

Re: HHA DS-5019 Ultra Bow Sight

Had COBRA single pins for 10 years. Bought an HHA about a month ago. LOVE IT! Very bright, well built, and easy to use!
