yellow -25
red -30
green - 35

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

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

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 .

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[:@]
