Default best single pin adjustable sight?

What is the best bang for your buck good single pin adjustable sight? I see and hear the HHA sights are really good and you can add glass to them also . Not sure which model is best if i went with them. Any suggestions or input?

Look into the kingpin if you want hha. They are expensive but very good sights

I have the king pin, well made sight, but the screws rust easy (all of them) and I find the yardage tape with the magnifier part hard to read. Had to modify mine. Don't think you should have to do all that for what they cost.

i bought a used tommy hogg and put one of spot hogg's double pin (single pin) scopes on it.

shot it that way for a while. dialed in top pin at 20, midway was 30 and the second pin was good at 38 yards.

then i put on the calibration tape and started sighting it in as it was meant to be used. could not believe how accurate it was at 60....

so i installed the correct tape on and went for an 80 yard shot. nailed the target on the first shot.

took me a few more shots to hit from 100 yards, but i really impressed with my tommy hogg.

I'm looking at going to a single pin with a magnifier myself. I only use 2 pins now but my eyes are getting bad enough I guess that I have a hard time seeing the target and the pins clearly in low light.

I have had great luck with my trophy ridge react one. I really love the brightness of the pin, and the accuracy of the react technology is great. I usually sight in at 20 and back out to 40 for the rough set. Then 60 or 70 to finely adjust. Works just as advertised, and my accuracy has vastly improved since switching to a single pin.

If I were to be buying one right now, I would be torn between the TR react one pro and a spott Hogg Hogg father.

I have had both a Black Gold Ascent (both the 3 pin and single pin sliders) and HHA XL5519. The HHA is brighter, so bright that when shooting in the sun I had to have the Rheostat closed almost the whole way to avoid starburst. But I like the forward wheel and auto dark fiber cover of the BG much better. I am looking for a used sight now for a bow my wife ordered for me for a birthday/doing well on cancer treatment present. I am really trying to find a BG. I completely regret selling mine last year.

I run the spot hog tommy hog. I think Spot hogs are by far the most durable. Hard to beat some of the HHA sights though. They have great pins and tritium inserts.

Holey robot resurrection Batman!

But since we are on the subject.
I shoot a Spot Hogg Hogg Father. The wheel design spreads out the yardage marks and makes it easier to see, I MUST have micro-adjustability on my slider and it's built like a tank! I have two actually, love 'em that much.

My wife shoots a CBE Tek-Hybrid (she only shoots indoor/targets, no hunting) and she loves it. I'm not too keen on the smallish wheel, but it is a solid sight and holds a good zero with no slop or buzz.

2015 called, they want their thread back!

I had an HHA Optimizer with a 4x lens on my old bow that I gave to my girlfriend. I have a Spott Hogg Fast Eddie Double Pin with a 4x lens on my Triax. I bought the Triax used and it already had the Fast Eddie on it. I like both and would use both but if I was buying brand new I would go with the Optimizer because of how bright it its. I hunt mainly out of ground blinds and I have had issues seeing my Fast Eddie pins without the light on. If brightness wasn't an issue I would probably recommend the Fast Eddie. You couldn't go wrong with either.

SH and Axcel are in a league of their own IMO. Are they more expensive? Yep.... but they are also sights you keep for 10+ years without issues. So you can buy "more affordable" end up buying 2-3 of them due to failures, missing features, bad CS... or just bite the bullet and get something you'll move from bow to bow for a long time.

Given that I have had good luck with Apex, but would stay away from HHA.... for the price... should have bought one of the above, as they are "average" quality for premium price IMO. Trophy Ridge has some good stuff, but many don't like the weight. MBG also makes a solid sight, but I still think SH is better. The SH Fast Eddie series is I think the best 1 pin sight for what you get for your $ right now.
