    Pin setting is personal, whatever blows your hair back. I set mine at 25-35-45-50-60.

    Course, your speed will ultimately determine your pin settings.
    Be good or be good at it.

    most of my shots are under 25 yards so I set my 3 pin sight up for 25,35, 45
    and this also seems to do well for me in the 3D's.

    You're one of the FEW others I know who does this....

    I personally usually only have 4 pins, and I generally base mine on how fast my bow shoots, but MOST of my set-ups are 270-290fps, and it seems that I've found 24-32-40-48 is about perfect for me....
