    I decided that I needed to take my shooting to a little higher level, and realized that my .029" pins were holding me back a bit, therefore, I went and bought a new Sword Apex Hunter with .019, looking for a budget sight that should be a good hunting sight as well. So after I've been shooting 5 spots for about a week, the new sight arrives in the mail today. I've never really shot competitively, but I thought shooting 5-spot paper targets and keeping score I could motivate myself to stay with the "Aim small, miss small" theory, and try to make myself be more consistent. So after a bunch of 48-49 ends, I finally dropped a 50 this afternoon with 3 X-cutters. I then dropped back to 30yds, and dropped a 47 and 48 each with 2 X-cutters. Now I'm wondering if I'm gonna want to try .010's next for shooting longer distances.

    I like the .010 pins, but if you have trouble seeing your pins, they may not be for you.....:noidea:

    do they use the same size pin, with different fiber diameters, or is the .010 pin smaller than the .019? if it's the same pin size, I dont know if there would be much benefit....:noidea:

    I have never tried .010 pins... I have used .019's for a couple of years now and those helped me over the .029 pins for sure. I'm not exactly the million dollar man with eyesight but trying .010's might be worth a few bucks to try.
