What yardage would yet set each pin for on a 5-pin sight? I set the first 3 pins at 10, 20 and 30 yds and they are pretty close to each other. I am shooting really well out to 30 yds and am ready to start shooting farther. Would you do the last 2 pins at 40 and 50 yds or 35 and 40 yds or what?

I set my 5 pins at 20-30-40-50-60. I honestly don't think you will need a 10 yard pin. Most bows shoot fast enough that there is hardly any difference at those yardage.
