Default Single Pin Sights

How do you set up a single pin sight (Not Pendulum). I see them alot more these days and was wandering, how do you or even can youadjust a single pin for differentdistances.

I use a single pin. It's an HHA Optimizer. While it does only have 1 pin the whole sight adjusts with a quick lock down. You set yardages and mark them on the pivot arm. So yes 1 pin but an infinite array of yardages.

I use a fixed single pin sight and like it much better than when i used multiple pins.I have 1 pin set for about 27 or 28 yards and with practice i get decent groups out to about 45 yards.The key is to practice and become very familiar with what ever you decide to use for hunting.imho.

U can focus alot better with one. I cant make up my mind if i want to get one of the ones that you lock on set yards.

I've got the singal pin with the adjustable optimizer also has a pendulem built in I love it quick finding through the peep and deadly accurate. Infact after i bought my new bow I took the one that was on it off. bought the adjustable one right away.. would have it any other way.

I was just thinking the same thing. With my new hoyt trykon the top pin shoots dead on from 10 to 40 yards, i know it is hard to believe but it does. I think if i get one pin and set it for about 30 yards i should be fine. I think i am heading to the pro shop tomorrow.

My brother and I both use single fixed pin, Sighted in at 30 yards dead on and it will shoot a tight group at 10-35 yrds. Around here most shot's are within that range. We both use Hoyt Bows Ultramag and Vtec. I see guys come in to the shop with 6 or 8 pins and they sight them 10 yards each.
I tie a ribbon at 35 yards in each direction i can shoot and if it's within that i'm good to go. Savesmoney not buying a rangefinder.

i'm a fan of the single as well - I've got a ranging site that adjusts in 1 yd intervals out to 70 yds (I wouldn't shoot at an animal over 30). I find that if I site it at 20 yds, I can keep a tight group anywhere from 10 to 30 - just gotta get to know your bow well.
