Default Pin settings?

What are yalls lim set at? Been shooting 20'30'40 yds for years. But new set up there's not enough adjustment between 20 and 30 pin. 20s zeroed but 30 is still high. Going to have to elevate 20 pin 3 to 4in for 30yds

If you're shooting that fast and flat, go to 30, 40, & 50. Sounds like you could use 1st pin for everything 30 and closer pretty easily. Maybe hold slightly low for 15-20 yard shots.

30,40,50,60. Set your top pin at 30 and practice at shorter distances to learn how high it hits at those distances. My old Hoyt Vectrix isn’t very fast, but only hits about 2 inches high at 20.

Set top pin at 25 and then 40, 50. Your 25 yard pin should be good from 20-30. Might be a inch high at 20 and a inch low at 30.

I have one pin set at 15yds. I can shoot from real close out to about 25yds with that one pin.

The drop from 25-35 should be a little greater than the drop from 20-30. Might get what you need

This is what I did. I don't like my pins stacked so close together. I am 1" high at 20, dead on at 25, 2" low at 30. All from my top pin. Next pin is on at 40, but I have never used it for hunting. It is there mainly as a reference

Look into a React 5 sight. Makes the sighting in very easy...

I shoot a fast bow, and no issues w/ the 20-60 yd pins.
