Currently shooting a Trophy Ridge 5-pin vertical sight. Thinking about buying a horizontal. What do you guys recommend and why?

I have an angled single pin sight made by Vital Gear . I like it better than vertical because I can elevate and it doesn't block my view of the target like my vertical pin did .

That is the problem I have also from like 30 yards and back. I think if a switched to vertical I might be more accurate. Thanks!

it is all personal preferance. I don't like anything blocking my sight window. I shoot a single pin adjustable. Low light conditions are harder to navigate if you have a sight window jumbled up with a bunch of pins. IMO

I just bought a HHA single pin sight this year. Its a vertical sight and man I love it! I also was having a problem with too many pins in my sight windown and the vertical pin lets me draw up on a target really well.
