Default Adjustable Single Pin Sights

I am thinking of tying a single pin adjustable sight (HHA Optimizer). Does anyone have any feed back about these types of sights good our bad? The idea of only having one pin sounds apealing to me

I guess you have to ask yourself how well you judge yardage. If you are decent at it and/or use a rangefinder you should be ok with it. Im not the best at yardage guesstimations yet so I went with a 5 pin setup. Plus I dont want to shoot from the red stakes at 3D shoots. YMMV

The HHAOL series is about as good as it gets for adjustable sights. The all-metal construction is one thing that wins me over. They're nearly indestructable, and pretty much as bright as you will ever need---without a light, I might add.

I don't quite agree with Niner's assessment regarding yardage estimation. Whether single pin or multiple you still have to estimate the yardage and execute the shot. It's just a matter of which pin you choose with a multi-pin sight. Of course this is when practicing and 3D. For hunting I just set my OL-5000 for 25 yards and leave it alone. With a bow speed of about 260fps or above I can hold the middle of a vital and just shoot anything inside 30 yards. I don't really care that at 30 yards the arow impacts 3" low. That just means the shot will take out the top of the heart along with the lungs. The only thing I have to determine is whether the animal is within 30 yards. It's a no brainer. And a nice clean sight picture helps keep things simple, too.

Go for it.

I agree that HHA is a top of the line sight ,I'm going to give the HHA 5500 a try in the near future.

mike, you cant go wrong with the HHA, i went from shooting three pin to the HHA OPTIMIZER 5000, its the brightest sight i have ever seen i usually set mine at 20 yards and i can hit anything up to 30. but thats with a hoyt i dont know how it would work on a matthews ( just kidding i had to add that) but really you cant go wrong getting one all metal, huge sight picture and you never have to worry about using the wrong pin, and if you shoot 3D you can get the lens kit. but imo you would be very happy with it.
