Got a fixed single pin and it is good to 30 yards on my Matthews Drenalin…Never shoot over that so it works great for me…

Single pin pendulum sight for me. I don’t shoot past 30yds either so it’s a great easy set up. I like it a lot.

i shoot a single pin from HHA on my PSE X-Force and it is plenty bright and pretty accurate. I can almost shoot it with out adjusting to 30 yards. But i think that is the bow and the hunter more than anything wink Anyways, i shot a 3 pin sight for years and i like the less clutterdness of the single pin. The only drawback is, if you shoot much over 30 you will have to slide it up a tad and with a deer closing you dont want to move any more than you have to. But it does allow you to set it and forget it from 0-25 yards which is nice. At the 30 yard mark and with my bow, i just hold the pin up a little higher on the target/deer and let it rip… usually it finds its mark…usually…

I just switched from a single pin to multi pin a few years ago.  Not even sure why.  I just liked the sight.  My pins are set at 20,30, 40 and whatever that last one shoots.  Most of my shots are in the 5-17 yard range, though I have taken a few in the last few years at the 30-35 yard range.

I shoot a Impact Archery single pin. It is the brightest pin I have ever had, it has a clear housing with something like 9 feet of fiber optic wrapped around.  Very accurate out to 30-35 with may Parker Ultra-Lite 31.

  For me keeping it as simple as possible is best. I shoot a single pin good to 30 yards and if need be from there some practice will tell you how much to raise your arm before harvesting… Where I hunt it is typically to thick to shoot beyond 30 anyway.

Would agree with too many pins just makes it confusing. I started with a five pin and ended up with a 3. Not sure I could ever just do the one but with five it just seemed there was too many in way.

I keep thinking I’ll go back to a single pin but can’t bring myself to doing it.  I concentrate better with only one consequently I shoot better with one.  The main reason I don’t change is that I hunt a lot in the west and often have long shots 40+ yards.  I don’t want to have to adjust my sight or guess how much over I need to hold. 

I just bought one of the IQ sights and it’s pretty awesome.  The bubble in the sight helps me to stay consistant in my form and my shooting has been very good.  The only draw back, the sight is expensive.

The IQ sight looks awesome, I think on high angle, and 40+ yards would greatly help with any hand torque…
