Well, I just purchased my first bow in 20 years, actually a nice used Hoyt from a fellow HPA member. The bow is ready to go except for one thing, a sight. Now "back in the day" when i was shooting, I started with a 3 pin sight, but eventually went to just one pin. So I am looking for suggestions on single pin sights for under $100. Would also welcome opinions on why a 3 or 5 pin sight would be better, or pros/cons for the sight you use. My primary use for the bow is hunting. Any and all comments welcome.

Thanks, Paul

I have an HHA OL5500. It was $125, but worth the extra $25, IMHO. You can get one that's a bit under $100, but it lacks the rheostat to decrease the intensity of the fiber optic sight pin. Trust me, you want to be able to do that. That little sucker will light up like a spot light, and in bright sunshine, it does get too bright.

HHA has phenomenal customer support, which is also worth paying a little extra.

All I use is single pin. Try HHA or Vital Bow Gear. Todays bows are fast enough that 1 pin is all you need from 0-30 yds.

Thanks for all the replies, it looks like HHA is the way to go.

A good choice. I have had the HHA OL-5000 or equal for several years and like it very much. As suggested before, if you get any thing brighter it can made a "Halo" in direct sun light. Meaning your sight pin will appear larger than it normally does. I can still see the pin in low light situations when I am unable to see the target well enough to shoot well. I do a lot of my target shoot right at dusk.

This is the exact reason why I shoot Montana Black Gold Premium bow sights. The photochromatic technology keeps your pin bright and never lets it halo, independent testing has shown MBG sights are the brightest fiber optics without the use of a light, unlike other slider type sights the MBG requires no spacer for mounting a quiver it mounts flush to the sight an absolute must for hunters, and now offer a Lifetime warranty on all pieces of the sight.....give them a look I have the Easy Glider and the new Ascent looks absolutely sick.
