    I've never used one but a friend of mine has. He liked it. The only problem he had was one of his stands was on a steep hill, and it didn't adjust properly to the elevation on an incline.

    I am not sure what one I would get do you have any suggestions?? Isn't the incline the whole point of pendulum b.c it adjusts its self at any angle?

    I have been using pendelums for over 4 years

    I like pendelum sites very much,but these type of sites are not for all situations. For your standard speed bow one pin will get ya 5-25 yards from a treestand. The way this type of site works is with gravity pulling the pin to adjust for the hieght while in the tree.

    Some sites that I liked would be Impac Bravo,ALL terrain, Scott Mtn Button head, savage pendelum ultra lite. All of these heads worked well for me.

    The Keller site works great but is a tunning fork! Way too loud for me andmost hunters.

    The best advise I can give ya is try one. I really like the fact that I have one pin and only one pin. KISS works for me when archery hunting(keep it simple stupid)
    If ya want I have one if ya wanted to try it shoot me a email.:peace:

    Yes it adjusts for the hieght of the stand. But if the stand is on a steep incline it shoots like the ground was flat and i think he said it hit low, Because the angle of the sight was like the target is closer. I don't really know like I said I never shot one.

    You Can always buy a used one and try it out and if you do not like it you acn reslee. G&B sights make a dandy one that with a little tweekin you can quiten down .It is alittle pricey but by far the mosy superior one out there good out top 35 Yards God Bless ,:biggrin1: Holy Smokes
