Default Does anyone else have this problem?

Ok so I was shooting my bow a while back at the local range and I couldn't figure out why I just couldn't focus out to 40-60 yards with my Hoyt Vulcan and G5 ME sight. Then I ended up shooting my old bow (kodiak 32) and could see the target/pins fine with the Kodiak quick click sight. I realized that I could see the pins/target better because my old bow is way slower 200fps (compared to 284fps) and thus my pins were spread apart better. Any ideas on sights or adjustments so that I can "see" the target/pins better on my Hoyt? I like the G5 sigh but the fiber optics suck during dusk if the light isn't on.

Try shooting a heavier arrow to slow it down and spread out your pin gaps.

Are they both the same size pins (.029" vs. .019")? The finer pins would help you focus better, so would better lighting or a larger peep. I get the same halo effect on my pins as the light fades. It doesn't much bother me in closer because the target looks larger but out farther (40+ yards) it makes it very hard to discern. You could try shooting at a larger target too (single spot vs. 5 spot) so that the halo still centers in it rather than blotting it out.

Try a one pin sight. HHA makes a really quality sight that is very adjustable.

Due to aging eyes and needing bifocals I had the same problem with my Hogg-It, although it isn't a problem with the sight. I shoot several bows so this is what I did. Removed the bottom pin from the Hogg-It and spread them out. Sighted in like 20, 35, 45, 55 yards.

On my other bow I just put my HHA OL-5000 on. Single pin works a lot better for me.
