I just have a 3 pin sight. I shoot one out to 30 yards. The second is for 35 to 40 yards. The 3rd pin I don't use, cause I don't feel comfortable shooting past 40. If you have a flat shooting bow I don't see a need for 3 pins to get you out to 30 yards.

I have a four-pin sight and they are set at 20, 30, 40 and 50. Due to my heavy arrow weight, I have too much drop between 20-30-40 to feel comfortable in possible rush situations to mentally adjust the pin for the calculated drop difference—I would rather put a selected pin on the target and focus on making a good shot, rather than take some of that focus on how high/low to hold. All that being said, my longest shot ever has been 28 yards.

Shooting an 09 PSE X-force I am slet 20-60 in 10 yard increments roughly.

I like it, but am looking towards going to a sight with a floating/adjustable pin/pins. It will make holding dead on at longer between yardages possible. I like the thought of that.

Again, my farthest shot on a deer this year is 36 yards. So it is probably a mute point.
