How many pins do you use?
 
I have 5

green -15
red -20
yellow -25
red -30
green - 35


lol that is just what it is set at now....

I like the 5 pins, It doesn't "confuse" me, like I have heard some say it does for them.

what do you set your pins at?

This year I have two. Last season I only had one but due to heavier arrows and a diffrnt bow I added a pin for security.

Green pin @ 25yds
Red pin @ 35 yds

2 last season. switched to 1 but am not really happy with how I'm shooting and thinking about going back to 2.

I shot 1 pin on a Sightmaster adjustable sight. It's like having the best of both worlds I have 3 yardage setting and I just move the pin to the correct yardage and let'er fly .

I have 2 a 20 yd and a 30 yd that lets me shoot to my max 35 yd by just holding a little high.

Last year hunted with a 5 pin Copper John. This year I just put on a Cobra pendulum sight so 1 pin this year. So far in practice it works great. Put it where you want to hit and forget about it. From about 5 yards out to 30 it is dead on;) Im terrible at distance so I hope this works for me. I always shoot over everythings back[:@]

I shoot with one pin. Like it better that way...

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
Anybody use two pins to bracket where there arrow hits? Site between a upper and lower pin?

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
Last year I put on my Cobra 5 pin site on my old bow. This year I transfered it to my new one, because it was much better than the one the bow came with. I had the set up starting from 15-35 (pin every 5 yards.) BUT now with the new bow, I shoot a lot faster and flatter. So my pins are correct until 20 yards. But from then up, I am shooting high, because my arrow is not dropping. I am shooting a lot faster, so I am going to keep the 15 and 20 pins, and then go 30, 35, 40 ... just jumping the 20-30, cuz it is flying about the same.

what do you think. Did that make sense?? lol

Bowfreak4life 08-09-2004 02:45 PM

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
I use 3 set at 20, 30, and 40. I don't under stand why people have one set at 10, on all the bows I have had there wasn't any drop difference from 10 yrds to 20 yrds, so I just go with 20, 30, and 40.

Buckslayer1 08-09-2004 03:01 PM

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
I use 1 pin sighted in at 20 yards.

buckeye 08-09-2004 03:03 PM

RE: How many pins do you use?

StealthyOne 08-09-2004 03:05 PM

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
4

20, 30, 40, 50

for any shots in between, just go between pins.

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
I use the HHA Optimizer slide type sight with only 1 bright green pin, i set yardage markers on the sight tape from 20 - 40 yards but very rarley use anything other than the 20 yard mark.

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
One single pin.....20 yards. Simple and easy. 30 yards is the max and I hold it 4" high.

Good Luck!

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
wow green head you must be shooting a low velocity bow if you are able to set your yardage like that, I have 3 pins on my sight a 20 yard a 30 yard and a 40 yard and all three pins are crammed as close together as possible. for example my 20 yard pin hits the same at 10 and 15 yards as it does at 20 even if i use my 20 yard pin at 30 yards it hits only about a 5 inches low but 40 yards is where there is a huge difference if i would use my 20 yard pin at 40 yards it hits about 2 feet low. But a 3 pin sight works perfectly for my shooting, the funny thing is while bowhunting and all the deer and turkey ive killed i've always used the 20 yard pin so technically I would only need one pin but the other 2 are for just incase.

RE: How many pins do you use?

Lol, no that was my old bow's set up. Just got a new bow that is shooting 315 FPS. I now am going to have a 20 30 40 50.

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
I use 1 pin. It is set at 25 yards. I use a green pin because I am color blind and can not see a red pin.

CapitalCop 08-10-2004 06:45 AM

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
I have five, use only 2. Top pin for 20 yards, second pin for 30, gap for 25.

ButchA 08-10-2004 07:00 AM

RE: How many pins do you use?
 
I have the everyday, common, Tru-Glo 3 pin sights.

20 yards - green
30 yards - red
40 yards - yellow

I don't normally use 40 yards, because I'm still not steady enough or confident enough, but I can at least hit the bullseye a few times with it.

20 - 25 - 30 yards.... heck yeah.... I am deadly from there! [8D]
