    I've been reading about .019 and .029 pin size. I know that the fiber size is different but I'm wondering about the actual pin. Is there a different size in the pins themself?
    What I'm getting at is I'm looking at a spot hogg seven deadly pins and is the arm of the pin for .019 the same as the .029?

    My pins are close together already with a tru glo extreme and trying to find something with a small pin diameter.

    The .019 are much smaller and you will like them alot better than the .029. Expecially if your shooting 3d. I shot the .029 for a long time and love the smaller pin:rockon:

    The pin & turret on the spot hoggs are the same size for .029 and .019.
    I'm not 100% sure on this but if you move the sight in, the pin gap will get larger? Can't remember for sure if it's in that they are larger or out that they are larger.

    Chris when you move the sight in toward the bow the pin gap gets tighter. I like the .019 pins. I am not as young as I use to be and a .010 would be harder for me to see. A young buck would like the smaller pins I would think.

    Thanks for the info. I'm thinking of getting the seven deadly pins of the hoggit hunter 7-pin. with mirco adjust then getting Fitzfiber's and run the fibers around the sight for more light.

    The cheapest place that I have found these sights is here on 3dshoots store, I just live a little ways from where spot-hoggs are made and the places that sell them want way more than across the U.S..
