i shoot a trophy ridge pendelum. it has one of the diles on it that your talking about..it can shoot from 10-70 yards. its really nice. they have one onsale for around 80 bucks. The best part about the trophy ridge is that everything they make has a life time warrenty. So if you drop it from a stand or it breaks you can send it in and get a new one.

I have 3 pins on the sight on my Jennings Rackmaster Bow...1st one set on 20 yards,2nd one on 30 yards and 3rd pin set on 40 yards.....simple to use and easy to remember.I'm like MsBager...I don't see how some of you can look at so many pins on your sights and get it right?  [&:]

ORIGINAL: peepsight

I went through the trouble of finding a Fuse sight with 5 pins and now I regret it.  Because the new bow I shoot shoots my new arrows from 10 to 30 yards with the 30 yard pin.  The 20 yard pin is sitting right  on top of the 30. 
       It is rather faster than the old Bear 44 Magnum I used to shoot, and i should have just transferred the old sight to my newer Bowtech "Old Glory" and have been done with it.
       [color="#ff0000"]Do any of you guys shoot those one pin sights that dial up and down a scale, and would that be a better solution for my setup?[/color]


I shoot the Impact Archery Cosmic. It can be a solution for you. In a hunting scenario you can set it for a specific yardage and adjust accordingly or you can loosen the slide so you can move it quickly with your thumb if needs be.

I feel your pain.  My site has 4 pins.  I set the top one at 20 and I cant get the next one down close enough to the top one to be good for 30.  It is actually on at 35.  The two below that are just along for the ride, I wouldn't shoot at a deer beyond 35 yards.  It is a good problem to have because it means your bow is fast and your range estimation doesn't have to be perfect for you to mke a clean kill.
 
 
BTW I'm jealous of the instinctive shooter....I wish I could do that!

I use two pins, one at 18 yrds the other at 35...i took all the others off, no use i can shoot out to 40-42 with those two pins and i get a better view of the animal,
 
most shots are between those two pins works great just takes some practice

i went straight to they're site and bought the cheapest one they had. it consists of a flat plate with the hindsight scope ring. it mounts under my sight plate. seems to me it was less than $20.

So I could keep my sight I have now and just add the back sight??? Is that what you did? I thought I was gonna have to buy the whole new set up.
