I have been shooting an HHA single pin for several years now... I also just set up a new bow and decided to go with a fixed pin set up to play around with... Currently I have one of each on my two bows (fixed pin and single pin)...

As for the single pin, 98% of my hunting is from a stationary blind/treestanbd, etc where I know what my shot ranges are and the single pin is great as I can set the pin in the middle of my shooting range and that has served me well as I do not have to worry about moving the pin during the hunt...

As mentioned, I bought a fixed pin sight to set up my new bow just to play around with fixed pins again... Have not decided which bow will be my go to and which one will be my back up yet...

But really liking the idea of the new 2015 CBE TEK Hybrid Pro, which is a multi pin adjustable sight... Ordered that one this week in a 3 pin arrangement to try out in place of the HHA single pin... Best of both worlds to me!

I made the switch from muilti to single 2 years ago. I have a single pin and loved it. Problem happened when I drew back on a deer and he then spooked and moved a little farther in range. I was uncomfortable using my 20 on a 30 yard shot and my bow is not setting the world on fire with speed

I liked having a single pin because of the uncluttered sight picture and everything else like a lot of people have said but when it comes down to it in the heat of the moment with the adrenaline pumping are you going to be able to dial in your slider if the range of the animal changes all of a sudden? I've messed up a few times with my single pin
May just be me to blame.I've switched to a 5 pin mbg accent and it is perfect bcuz I still have that long range capabilities and don't have to worry about moving it 20-70yds.

Ive been looking at going to a single pin sight as well. Have always shot multi pin sights but I keep seeing people rave about the single pin options and it has defiantly caught my attention.

Well, with money as tight as it is, switching to a new sight isn't something that I want to do flippantly. I'm wondering, has anyone ever switched back to multi pin after shooting a single pin sight? If so, why?

Single pin sliding sight, Montana Black Gold.

Been shooting single pin for a long time, not ever going back to multiple pins.

Hey, you sight in a single at 27yds and you are good out to 32yds. That alone does away with at least 3 pins.

Since my last post, I have switched to a three pin slider. I had some issues with spot and stalk effectiveness, so I changed up. I set one pin dead center of the housing and sighted that in with the slider from 20-60 to get my tape. Then, I set my slider to 30 so I can put my top pin at 20 and the bottom at 40. Now I can hunt pretty much any of my spots here in Tx without ever moving my sight, but I can practice out as far as I want. Best of both, IMO

For years I've stuck with my G5 Optix XR2 sight. It's basically a single fixed pin, and an additional adjustable floating pin by dial. I can wheel it completely to the bottom and out of the way, but if I happen to need it, I can dial it in to the yardage I want, that I marked on the dial during sighting in. So, ideally yes, I'm shooting a single pin, but I have the option to roll in the additional pin. I don't believe they make this sight anymore though.

There is no way I would go back to a multi pin sight, now that i have used a single pin for a period of time. The only way, would be if No body made a quality single pin. Even then I would try and make a single pin out of a multi pin sight myself.

Been shooting an HHA for 4-5 years now and loved it.

I just moved to a garmin xero to try something different. So far it's going pretty good in the backyard. Need some more field time with it though

Hunting in East Texas where deer can move quickly through the thick brush and loose an opportunity of a clear shot, I don't have time to adjust the sight. So I prefer muti-pin.

I have tried sliders and like them for 3D but too many things happen in hunting situations for me to give up my 7 pins. Just old school I guess.

I used the spot Hogg vertical double pin for a few years. Set it at 25 and the 2nd pin for me was 40. For hunting woods, it was perfect.

This year I lost my woods lease and was hunting a more open area. I set up a 5 pin slider for that. No regrets, itís awesome too. If I have a great woods place next year, I probably wonít bother switching ack to the spot Hogg the 5 pin slider is fine.

I have a Hogg Father single pin and have been happy for the last two years. I will probably send it in and have the 2 spot single pin installed. It seems to be the best for my style.

I shoot a multi pin but I use the vertical pins (Trophy Ridge V5) and have found it works best for me.

I’m assuming that y’all havent had much issue with deer/game spooking and changing yardage after you’re at full draw? If so, how is adjusting a single pin to a different yardage on the fly like that?
This is the only reason I haven’t switched to a single pin. If it doesn’t seem to happen much to y’all, or the adjustment on the fly isn’t as big of a pain as I’m thinking, I may make th switch before next season

Switched to a single pin about 5 years ago. Second best thing I ever did, archery wise. First best was switching to a thumb release.

Depends on your style of hunting really. For stand hunting over a feeder there is no problem at all. For spot and stalk it can be a little dicey, but I use a double pin, set to 20 yards I can shoot my second pin at 31 yards, and with practice, I can shoot confidently out to 35-36 yards without touching the knob.
