    It should unless you have a tuning or target panic issue.
    I use .019. I shot a bow last weekend with .029 pins and it looked strange to me even though that's what I used for quite a while...

    Hey Bowman, who makes .010 fiber ? That would be interesting to try out.

    A .010 pin is nearly half the diameter of a .019 pin. The numbers mean one thousands of an inch. A 10 of thousand of an inch pin is 9 one thousand of an inch smaller than a 19 one thousand pin.

    Actually I'm not sure if its inches or centemeters but the rules still apply.

    yes

    I agree with dred.
    I looked at scopes to find the smallest dot in it.
    it help's you see the x better & you can put it inside a 12ring at 45yds on 3-x scope.
    1 i had the dot was to big & filled the ring.:peace:

    I switched to the .019 pins last summer and could tell a difference. the pin didn't cover the 12 ring as much, it's like fine tuning your accuracy.

    I shoot a .010 pin for hunting and 3D and it the best for my shooting requirements. Check out the Sword 3rd plane with .010 pins.
