I'm looking into changing my sight after this season. What experiences do you guys have regarding the different set ups I listed (pendulum, 3 pin, 5 pin)? Currently I use a 3 pin but am wondering about trying a new set up....

You now have the floor gentlemen!

Your thouhgts and experiences please.

Just bought an HHA single pin slider. Love the sight picture I get with the single pin.

If your bow shoots over 280 fps and you hunt here in TN a single pin is worth a look.

Same here ! I love the simplicity of a single pin moveable sight . I lock mine down at 25 yards and I'm good out to 35 yards with a little elevation .

Most bow shots are less than 25 yards , so speed isn't much of a factor . I have done polls on several forums with hundreds of votes , and the average killing shot distance is less than 25 for whitetail deer .
I have been bow hunting for. 32 years now , and I can count on one hand the number of deer I have killed over 30 yards . In that case , a single pin moveable sight is not at a disadvantage .
If you are hunting in open areas where longer shots are common , a single pin moveable sight might not be the best choice .

I agree strongly with you Radar, all my experiences have been under 40 yards. The areas I hunt are mix woods (hard/pine) and doing a long 40+ will be a random occurance. So what is the difference between a pendulum verses fixed single pin? Does the pendulum give a better refence for treestand angle shots?

I haven't used a pendulum sight in 15 years . I see no need for them . Bend at the waist , keep good form , aim low on nervous deer .

I have a single pin slider as well. All the benefits of a single pin... all the benefits of multiple pins. WINNER
