Default my setup needs help

Here's what I have so far. A fred bear instinct set at 70lbs and 28.5 draw. I'm buying my arrows from bass pro, for what it matters. What i'm looking for is a pendulum sight that works. Any reccomendations? I have one at my house, believe it's the "scout" pendulum from 2 or 3 years ago. Not willing to spend 140 bucks on that new electronic pendulum, just want one that works. How about it guys, any suggestions? I've always shot high up close and low at 30 w/ pendulums. Very low and very high. All from about 20 ft. up

Check out Impact Archery, they make a Bravo pendulum sight and an all-terrain pendulum. Very durable and affortable. I personally don't shoot a pendulum but I do shoot their single pin jumbo sight. Great product.

Good Luck

my sight is a savage, of course i'll try it first but I'd still like to hear ideas. Also, about how fast should I be shooting and what arrow/broadhead should I use?

I'd go with the impact pedulum that lets you lock it down, then has a slide bracket that lets you dial in the exact yardage for hunting on the ground.

i've heard the keller's are VERY noisy. In fact, my uncle used an older keller for a while and it was pretty noisy. Whats your guys take on this? has the sight been improved? Not trying to be a know it all, just many questions.

I had a Keller and loved it, mine wasn't noisy at all. Plus you can get them for like $50 brand new now. All in all a very well made sight.

okay, thanks. W/ my setup do you think it will be accurate? I'd like to be able to use a pendulum so that i REALLY wouldn't need to guess yardage!
