    Default Bow sight woes and I just don't know what to do.

    I own 2 sights a single pin HHA dial sight and a Sword twilight hunter that I just upgraded with new all green 12" fibers. I can shoot a single pin quite efficiently out to 30-35 yards. I STILL cannot use a multi pin sight as the pins are way to close together. Even from a 20 yard pin to 40 yard pin that gap is still to small for me to shoot anywhere near accurately. Most of you are already about to type what I should do BUT read on. When I use the sword sight on my bow, my bow is basically illegally quiet, like I should need a federal tax stamp for owning a silencer. When I use my HHA I still get a metallic twang at the end of the shot but nowhere near as loud before I tightened down the windage adjustment knob where with the sword there is NOTHING, no sound, NOTHING. I am contemplating some options

    1. Sell the Sword and keep the HHA even though it is much louder than silent.
    2. Sell the HHA and make the Sword into a single pin, which I can make single or vertical (I made a vertical pin sword before, I just need another 2" round aperature) I just hate that I spent the extra $$$ for 5 new fibers
    3. Sell both and get another sight with 1 pin and no adjustments to come loose or twang at the end of the shot.

    A 1 pin slider is what you like get a model/make that isnt noisy. Noisy sights cannot be tolerated. Spot Hogg ? maybe Theyre multi puns are quiet anyway. im a multi pin guy

    I had a 1 pin slider and didnt like it, I really like the dial sight but its noisy. I dont understand why I have to be the oddball and not be able to use a multi pin sight.

    Yes but it dials in to yardage much smoother than the slider I did have.

    Not the most cost effective way of doing it, but maybe get a target sight (like an axcel 3000) and pick up a HHA scope (nice bright pin). You can precisely dial in yardage, plus it does have the quick release. You can probably pick up a sight for 190-200$ used, then the scope for about 55$.
    Sword also makes the trident...dials like a competition, comes with the scope. I think you can get the whole thing for about 180$...but not sure about pricing.

    Your not an oddball.....I don't like multi pin sights anymore either. I have one on my hunting bow right now...but only because I messed up the knob on my CBE block and haven't fixed it yet.

    I would sell BOTH....not a fan of HHA.....and get a better single pin/slider sight. Your a fan of the dial....probably for when you need to adjust it in the field. But in all honesty.....how many times deer hunting are you really going to need to adjust it? Probably once in a blue moon at most. If your bow is shooting over 270fps set the thing on 25yds and your good to go. You won't need to move it until you get to a shot in the 40 yd range. Just hold a little higher.

    As for a solid sight.....I would pick up a CBE Tek Target and put a CR housing on it with an up pin. That's going to run you $255 if you buy everything brand new. Much more solid then what you have and it will not be noisy.
