The pins are steel as well as the adjustments. maybe you should re-check your very tight criteria.

OK, so I have been known to make a mistake, but TR makes so many sights it's really hard to keep up.There must be about 15different models the last time I put them on the pegs. Most are plastic though, and I have heard about the adjustments on them breaking. Usually customer service will be good, but I wouldn't know about HHA. If the product is good customer service is not needed.

This sounds like a trip to the store and find out which ones are which.

Single pin is all you need for todays high speed bows, set it at 20 yards and if the deers under 30 shoot dead on. If the deers further out its not a rushed shot and you should have time to estimate or range the animal and adjust accordingly. I shoot a Custom Bow Equipment Micro Light II with a Shrewd scope. I use a 4X lens for 3D and remove the lens for hunting, expensive but worth it.

Like most of you, I have also just used one fiber optic pin set for 25 yards. After finally buying a new set-up along with site, quiver, etc. I am now using two pins, one for 10-20 yards, and one for 35. If you don't shoot 3-D a lot, judging distances can be tricky. I also picked up a Nikon laser rangfinder. After getting into a stand, I laser shoot many different objects around my stand to verify what the ranges are ahead of time. Now with just using two pins, I'm good for most shots within my comfort range.

I have used both fixed pins and a slider. Both have their advantages i.e. if you have a range finder then the slider works great from the stand. I range the trees around my stand so if I see a deer coming I know the distance to where they are based on the trees around me. Also stalking is nice, I took a nice deer last year at 42yards. Conditions were perfect, wind in my face and trees to hide behind on my approach. Their both ok I think its what you are comfortable with.

This year i shot a single pin sighted in at 15yds. But next year i think that i am going to set 3 or so just to make it a little easier on me.

Well maybe we can just trade then. I'm going from a 3-pin Trophy Ridge to a HHA single pin next season. I have killed two deer this season and the only thing two of the pins did was get in the way.

I have the TR sights on my pig hunting bow i have just 3 pins..... this works quite well for this set up...On my other bow i have TR single pin adjustable that also is a pendulum one quick twiston the knob i can move my sight from 20 - 50 yards with hardly any movement!! now i keep it at 20 most odf the time while i'm hunting from a tree stand sometimes it set for 30 yards depending how i'm set up... i rarely have to move it..while stalking yes it gets moved a lot!! Took a caribou in alaska this year moved the sight to 30 yards with a quick 1/8 turn and launched!!!

I think what i'm getting at is you set up to what is comfortable to you and your set up and what you have confidence in so it works for you !!

242 fps. isn't necessarily slow. I have seen people have serious problems with adjustable sights ondeer that are walking(wich they tend to do). There's enough to concentrate on when shooting a deer, much less adjusting your sight. Also joshkeller has an excellent point about brush checking with your other pins. Get a 3 pin and spread em out so you don't get confused, sight em in and shoot the deer with a simple, durable and bright sight. Good Luck

I shoot a mathews safari set at 94 #s. This is my 1st 1 pin bow. Man do I like it. I do not think I will ever go back to many pins but I do know I will keep my faster bow.
