    Single Pin Sight

    I was thinking about buying a single pin sight. Anybody have any experience with the Black Gold Ascent single pin?? Seems to be a good sight that won't break the bank.

    Very good sight IMO. The only down fall is I have had a few strip out on the slide wheel. However they a very good in their customer service and guarantee all their product so they would take care of it if that where to happen.

    Good choice IMO.

    I have had mine for over a year now(three pin ascent)and I am pretty rough on sites walking through brush and all. It has held up great, have not had any problems with it at all.

    How is it with the sight tape facing sideways? Seems like it could be a little rough

    It hasn't been bad with the tape on the side, but I have not used one with the tape facing you. I think it is all what you get used to.

    3 pin would probably be my minimum.

    I've used an HHA single pin for six years and wish I would've have switch sooner. A lot of guys at my pro-shop shoot the Ascent single pin and really like it.

    I shoot the five pin Ascent. Can't beat the customer service from BG. No issue with the side tape for me.

    I've again changed my mind, and I am going to order a 4-pin custom sight from an archery shop.
