    What do you think about a single pin adjustable sight?

    As you can see in my signature I have a 7 pin tommy hogg and a 3 pin tommy hogg for my bows. I was thinking about switching to a single pin hogg fathers for my bows and selling my tommy hoggs. I am wondering whether any of you were in a situation where a multi pin sight would have helped you arrow a animal versuses a single pin? I think it would help me shoot even better but the thought of having a giant at 40 yards and have the single pin set at 20 yards and I can't adjust to shoot him. I see alot of people use single pins but am curious what your guy's take is on them. Thanks again for all your guy's help!

    I have never used a single pin, but I have watched two buddies miss horribly cause they forgot to adjust their single pin in the heat of the moment. I will stick to my 5 pin.

    I switched from a Montana BG to a hha single pin slider. I think the hha is a heck of alot better. For hunting situations you just leave the pin on 30 yards and practice with it there. So 20 your a couple inches high,30 your dead on, 40 a couple inches low and 50 just hold a hair above the back on a elk anyways. It sure is fun though to shoot a 3d course with a single pin slider nothing like turning your sight to a 100 yards and nailing a deer

    I can't stand a 1 pin, and can't understand how others get "confused" by multiple pins, ie I shot him with my 40yd but thought it was my 30yd pin.

    It's called focus, and train, and learn it!

    a 3 pin would be my minimum, 4/5 preferred.

    30, 40, 50yds.

    it's pretty simple, range or select the animals distance, ok 40yds, then say 1st pin is 30, 2nd pin is 40...ok use the 2nd pin! done, shoot, dead elk.

    I used to say the EXACT same thing. Then I got OLD. My eyes just don't focus the same as they used to, and it is often hard to make as accurate a shot as I used to be able to do time after time after time. Focusing near (on the pin) and still having a clear picture far, or far and near isn't so easy anymore and the whole process keeps me from concentrating like I used to. I shot a Hogg It Hunter with Hogg wrap for years and love them. This year I switched to the Hogg Father and to be honest I am shooting better than I have in 4-5 years. Shooting 3D and paper great and super confident at out to 80-100 yards which, while I have little use to shoot that far in a hunting situation, typically leads me to complete confidence at tree stand distances and on the ground at 40-50. I've seen a lot of sights and bows come and go in 40+ years of archery, and used to put down all the single pin and pendulum guys, I was an idiot. I am sold on the single pin now.

    If you need it, it could very possibly change a lot about how well you shoot. If you want to stick with a multi pin sight, by all means go ahead, you are shooting a great one. Either way, don't let an idiot like I was talk you out of it. Shoot what works for you. One suggestion, if you just want to check it out, try a cheaper HHA or Trophy Ridge or something. If you get the hang of it, step up to the Hogg Father and slap the other one on eBay (or a back up bow, or give it to a kid or something).

    I don't get confused just that I sometimes think I am dead on lungs and are a few inches low. I think I might switch and if I have to just get 3 pin heads for both so then I am good to 40 but am really liking the single pin idea now.
