I’m shooting a tommy hog and they released the fast Eddie line up weeks after I bought the tommy Hogg.....I prefer the fast Eddie with the little experience I’ve handled them. Way lighter which was only small negative to tommy Hogg. Not quiet as smoot imho but plenty smooth enough and would have been a better sight for me personally

Great sight

Love my Fast Eddie XL. I have the double pin and I won't be shopping for a new sight anytime soon. I highly recommend one.

I love mine. I have the double pin but unfortunately it has recently turned into a 4 pin...I guess it is time for glasses!

Been shooting a Hogg Father for years, same as the Fast Eddie but with micro-adjust windage and elevation.

Can't go wrong with Spot Hogg and the Fast Eddie is a great sight.

Just got an XL double pin, still in the process of sighting it in but like it way better then my MBG single pin. Fast Eddie XL is built like a tank.

I have the double pin with .1 pins and I love it, very easy to use and super strong and great finish. My only negative is that mine has a very hard time spinning the dial and if I loosen the clamps to make it easier to spin then I get vibration noise.

Another Fast Eddie XL double pin user here. Only sight I'd consider now is the full Hogg Father, but haven't bit the bullet yet. Its tough, reliable, very bright pins, and great customer service. It is admittedly heavier than its competition but nothing is free.

I just put the fast eddie XL one of my bows. I am having problems getting it sighted in but I haven't had a whole lot of time to shoot it either. Its a sweet set up though, I am sure once I get the bugs worked out it will be awesome.

Great sight. Only sight I would change to is a Hogg Father. Single pin has improved my shooting immensely.

I've been using one for 3 years now and have no desire to replace it. I would recommend the double pin over the single. At 278fps and sighted in at 20, the 2nd pin is dead on at 35 with the dovetail half way out.

Also the benefit of the XL is to be able to move your sight in and out to get a better peep/sight housing sight picture. May not make a difference at 20 yards much, but the further you shoot the more it helps.

Been looking at going with a single pin myself. Any issues with what appears to be a white plastic gear on this sight in picts? Have yet to see one up close and try it out. But canít help but wonder if this is a point of concern? To the OP. Since this is already a posting on the FE XL hope you donít mind me throwing this question out there.

Thanks.

Love mine, shot it for two coming up on three seasons. Double pin XL with the extra sight rings. I don't see myself going to anything different for awhile.

I used the Fast eddie with the double pin, perfect for Midwest whitetail hunting, site the top for 20 and the second pin is 35

Another fast Eddie double pin user here. I absolutely love mine. Itís kinda tough to sight in dead nuts, if youíre not comfortable shooting 60 yards tho. It took me a while when I first got mine. Itís good now tho. I wonít be switching for quite some time!

Love mine as well. Before you sight it in, just make sure you bring the housing close enough to the riser so you have full clearance at longer shots (I learned that the hard way).

The Fast Eddie is awesome. Get the dovetail double pin. Like others have said, in most tree stand situations I never have to adjust my sight. The only knock I have is that the fiber optic doesn't collect light all that well imo

I agree that it doesnít gather light the best, especially in groundblinds or box blinds. But the light takes care of that. But other than that I love the sight

The black gold whitetail looks good to me as well, the only disadvantage is that it doesnít have the double pin

I have a 3-pin spot Hogg and I’d rather have the single pin. Just clears up the sight picture a bit.
