    Okay, I am curious if there is a fixed pin sight that offers a good view of your target. I shoot an Apex Gear Inferno and it is okay, but I like to see more. I was considering a spot hogg, but think it may be too crowded in the pin guard...

    So Any Suggests or Opinions. Please!!!

    Happy Hunting,

    Melissa

    I'd suggest going to a single pin or at most dual pin setup. It works wonders! I have shot everything from 1 pin to 5 pin and I always go back to 1 pin. in about 99% of the hunting situations you will never need more then 1, why add more pins that won't be used?

    My sight of choice is a Copper John Dead Nuts (4 years old) that I've taken all the pins out of but 1. and I have that pin centered in the sight. It works great.

    I prefer the trophy ridge in line pin sights. I would suggest using the smallest pin diameter that you can comfortably see.

    I have a multi pin sight with .010 pins. The smaller the better for me if I am going to use a multi pin sight. Mine is a Sword apex 3rd plane micro and I use it for hunting and 3D so that is why I have multiple pins.

    Picture????

    Hi Hookem

    Is there any way you would post a picture of what the sight looking like in the pin guard. I am interested in the .010 but wondering if they may be too small...

    Thanks,

    Melissa

    The flash kinda made them look dull, but the way sword extends the fibers they are actually very bright (I would get all green if I were you). But here it is...

    .010 pins are great if you have good eye sight. I have 3 Sword sights and I love them all. I just bought there single pin sight for 3D and Indoor league this winter. I set my sights up with a .019 pin on the 20 yard and .010 on the rest for multiple pin sights.:rockon:

    hoggs are the best pin sight ever. No other sight allows you to make gang windage and elevation adj as easy as the hogg. The resale value of a hogg is high too. Take good care of it and you can get $120 for a used one easy.If it takes ajust a coupla scratches ..$100.Hoggs still rule and the competition is still inferior( but functional.)

    I just switched to a Copper John Dead Nuts 2 Competition sight with 4 pins and the sight picture for me is pretty good. I used to use a Trophy Ridge 5 inline pin sight that had a bit smaller sight window and some other issues. The CJ sight is pretty nice.
    If you want a decent single pin sight Cobra has a slider sight with a .029 pin with a 2 foot wrapped fiber that's really good. I have one I'd be willing to part with if you're interested. PM me with your email address if you want a pic or two of it.
