    After seeing CFY's post about the different pin sizes:

    http://3dshoots.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8870

    I was wondering if anyone has used smaller pins as distances increased and how this worked out for anyone who has. I was thinking that a smaller pin for targets further away may cover less.

    Thanks

    I use .019 for everything.

    What I did do with my hunting bow sight is reduce the length of the fibers for the longer yardage pins so the glow don't 'impinge' so much on the target.
    I've redone my fibers with Fitzfiber LD fibers. You can start out long and then just trim down a bit at a time. I tried to take a pic and post it a year or so ago and it didn't work worth a damn. If you play around with it you will understand what I mean. Going to .010 might be too small for me. They don't have .010 pins for my sight anyway...

    That sounds good as well. I don't shoot well enough yet to worry about that, but it sounds like something I would just enjoy playing around with.

    Thanks A Lot
