bow sight? how many pins do you go with.
i have three but i am wondering about the 1 pin sight. any upside to it. seems to me that my sight is clustered when looking through and maybe a one pin would be better?

I have five on all my bows, but three is all a person really needs. Set at 20,30,40.. unless you're just going to shoot more than 40 yards there is no need. I'm just of those fools that shoots 75 plus yards (just for practice)

3 should be all a person needs for hunting,targets I can see the need for more maybe.

I have 5. I have heard alot of good things about 1 pin. Don't know to much about them though

3 I dont think I would shoot so well with a one pin setup. I would
do alright in practice but in a hunting setting I wouldnt do so well
my bow is not that fast set at sixty pds.

I use a HHA OL-5500 with 1 pin and love it, myself I found multiple pins a problem in low light and found it very easy to use the wrong pin when the pressure was on. With the single pin that is no longer a problem.

I love it!

thanks, ya i am thinkin its more of a prefference. i have just seen alot more of these single pin sites out there and was just wondering about them. my neighbor has one and he loves it. easy to see in lower light.

I have a three pin, but I think my next will be a single pin. I really like the openness of the single... I'm also not making 40 yard shots. I think it really depends on your range and comfortability with distancing your target. I'd sacrifice the openness for a clean kill.

I have 1 pin on mine. I always had a hard time with my old sight that had 3 pins, to much to think about when I was aiming, now I just put the pin right on target, and let fly. I should mention tho, that I wont shoot past 25 yards.
