Hey guys,
I have recently bought a Mathews Chill and having trouble deciding on a sight. I have for years shot a 3 pin Copper John Deadnuts 2 on my other bow. On my new bow I am wanting to put something good on it. I have been looking at the HHA one pin sights but I am worried of having to adjust in the stand at a spare of the moment. The other two sights I have been looking at is the IQ Micro 5 pin or the Trophy Ridge React sight. If anyone can, can you please give me some pros and cons on these sights or give me some ideas on other sights. What is the benefit of the one pin sight versus the other multiple pin sights.

Some of the benefits would be a less clutter sight window and for sure not choosing the wrong pin. Also you can have a lot of yardages marked on your sight. I have used both and the cons of a single pin out weight the advantages for me. Even though you can't shoot the wrong pin, you can have it set different than you think you do. I have done that but I have never shot the wrong pin. I also don't like the idea of having to move the sight or having to hold over to hit in the vitals. If you are wanting a multiple pin, I can't comment on the ones you listed but I would also look at the Sword Twilight Hunter and Black Gold Rush.

I use both type of sights—a single pin adjustable for target 3D, and a fixed pin for hunting. I am not a fan of single pin sights for hunting for the sole reason in some places I hunt I am just as likely to have one step out at 10 yards as I am to have one step out at 40 and I might not have time to adjust—not worth the chance for me. Calculating in my head how far to hold over the back when I do get caught in an "off" yardage is not for me. Not to mention, there have been several times when I've been in a 3D tourney when I have forgot to adjust my yardage dial, and I didn't have a nice buck in front of me either making me goofy.

As far as which one to recommend, there are several quality choices—Black Gold, Trophy Ridge and Extreme to name a few...I have the Extreme Raptor on my setup.

Thanks guys. I'll take a look at them. There is so many choices for everyone's liking. Such as arrow rest. I been reading on reviews for fall away rest I have heard alot about ripcord but they say qad is best. Im like in over load on decisions to make.

I have a single pin adjustable and I love having one pin, it really opens up the sight picture in low light conditions. The downfall of course is having to adjust it in the field prior to drawing. Another downfall that I didn't consider until this year is you cant use one with the Vendetta rangefinder, as it is "sighted in" with one stationary pin. I ran across a Vendetta for a good price and loved the idea of constant ranging, but had to pass because of my sight.
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

You're never to old to learn something stupid.

I have been looking at the G5 Optix for my new bow. It has 3 fixed pins and 1 adjustable. I think this is a good option if you will be chasing elk or antelope where 60+ yard shots are not uncommon. Good Luck!

I have the HHA and the TR React. I love shooting with the HHA, but will try the React for hunting this year for many of the reasons TNDeerguy mentioned. The React is a cool concept, 5 pins but you sight in at 20 and another fised yardage (I did 60) and it sets the remainder of the pins for you. Hard to screw it up.

On the IQ sight, I liked it and the concept works...but it's a lot to keep track of in a hunting situation...ended up ditching it for the React. There's too much going from the sight picture to the little set of bubbles for me, but I may have ADD too!
