Default What sight ?

my hoyt spyder will be here in about 2 weeks. i ordered a spot hog and am sure i will like it. however i have been looking at the hha i pin dial in. i have found looking at so many pins to be a little distracting. and i like the idea of having just one pin. would like to get some thoughts from you guys .this bow will be used for 3d archery only. if i decide to go with the hha, the spot hog right on will be for sale at a very good price still in box.

using a movable single pin will put you into a higher class bracket which will put you competing against guys with magnified lenses and 30 inch stabilizers shooting at farther distances. you should ask for equipment descriptions and max yardages for the various classes at the club(s) where you plan on shooting and go from there on equipment selection.

I never understood the fascination with HHA really

They are OK sights...but for the money and for what you get your better off getting a better sight. Even more so if your talking about for target archery. If I were getting a sight for what you want it for I would get a CBE. You can get a brand new Tek Target for $200 and it is a MUCH better sight. Not even a debate. If you don't want to spend the cash on a new one you can usually find a good deal on a used one with a scope for cheaper then that. Heck you can even find Quad Lites for that price or cheaper if your lucky. I got one of mine for $150

I won't shoot pins anymore...well I do occasionally for hunting. But even then 99% of the time of the past 10 years or so I have shot a target sight of some variety. I have two CBEs so one of them is usually on my hunting bow. Set the pin at 25-28yds depending on the speed of the bow and I don't have to touch it unless I have a 40 yd shot or more.
