I've got the Cobra King Cobra single pin and really like it. Slightly less than the HHA.

Truglo Range Rover - $89 - w/light

Several more north of 150. Is the HHA really worth the premium and why?

I have the Truglo Range Rover with adjustable light brightness...I think I paid 79.00 at BPS, so far this year I really like it. You won't regret making the switch, its such a clean target view. Drew on a couple doe's on Sunday just to see how it looked kind of mad for not making the switch sooner.

My son has HHA,it was on the bow he bought.
I sent it back to get new fiber wrapped,the old one was not bright.

I had an HHA then switched to the Black Gold Ascent> i think it is much more hunter friendly. the pin light is not sticking out of the top like an after thought and i much prefer the knob adjustment versus the slider. I also had trouble adapting my tight spot quiver to the hha. good luck

Another vote for the Montana Black Gold Ascent. I have switched over both of ny hunting bows to them from HHA. Same outstanding customer service with a more solid sight. MBG Ascent has easier to adjust dial and a brighter pin. Check them out, they are worth the money.

Hha optimizer ultra. Get the dial. Very precise. Sight at 20 and then 60. Find the number tape that matches up and you are good to go. Sight light doesnt bother me.

This. I have a 20 yd mark that's good from at the base of the tree to 28 or so. After that I got a 40yd mark. I can Kentucky windage pretty well just leaving it at 20.

I am not a fan of TruGlo. The products I've owned are less than quality and their customer service is severly lacking. I think they are TX based too. Sad

I am seeing that some of the sights require you to sight in at 20yds and 60yds, I would have a problem with that due to the fact that I have never shot my bow out past 40yds, I think I would lost 1.2 dozen arrows before I got it on at 60yds. I am 100% confident with my shooting ability out to 35yds but ive never practiced any farther than that, anyone know of any other ways to sight in without having to shoot out to 60yds?.............even if I got it sighted in that far I don't think I would ever shoot at an animal at that distance, at least not without tons of practice under my belt first.

yes you can just use a fine point sharpie on your sight tape, or scotch tape an go out to 20 sight in an then mark you a line where the needle is then go to 25, 30 and so on

Yes, wonderful customer service. They even added a new level to it. I first got my HHA as a package when I bought a drenalin, and didn't like it. But after shooting and switching to multi pin twice I don't like multi pin anymore. I haven't tried any other than HHA, but I don't plan too.

I just want to throw this out there. A few weeks back I got a G5 Opitx XR2 and I love it. It has two pins, 1 fixed (I set it at 20yds) and one adjustable that I marked out to 60yds in 5 yard increments. I love it! I had read a few early reviews about things vibrating loose and making noise but I have had none of those issues, they must have fixed those.
When hunting I set the adjustable pin to 30 yds which is probably about as far as I would shoot. But I have to say that shooting a nice 4" group at 60 yards sure boosts the confidence.

I run the MBG Easy Slider. Pretty simple, lightweight and will let you mount a quiver to the sight without spacers...

put a piece of tape on it and sight in your 20, then your 25, 30 and 35, go in the house and sit down at the table, pop the top on a cold shiner and match your marking's to one of the provided sight tapes the manufacturer supplied...Yes, I know,, I am pretty smart!!

HHA actually has directions to sight in at 20-40 and then you should be set out to 60. They suggest doing 20 and 60. I sighted mine in at 20-40 used the number tape I was supposed and the sight is on out to 60 as well as I can shoot that far.
