Best lightweight single pin sight?
I have a new DXT and wonder what the best lightweight sight to put on it. I am partial to single pins but am mostly interested in lightweight and durable!
i used a impact archery single pin with an adjustable arm. it worked great but i switched to a 7 pin site for hunting out west. $50 n its yours.
I use a Cobra 4 pin site....double slot....but only use 1 pin! Cost about $8.00
Forget the single pin sight and get a hha movable single pin sight and you will be a happy man.Get the 19 thousand pin.
I second Caspers post...i have a HHA movable single pin sight...best sight i've ever used.
Impact jumbo single pin. lightweight and needs very little light to see the pin.
I'll third the HHA moveable sight.
Multiple pins were getting difficult for my aging eyes. The single HHA pin solved that.
It's a solid, quiet, well-made product.
HHA for me also. I agree with the 19 pin size. In the evening, I can't see the target before I can't see the pin. If you get the one that is adjustable, you can "turn it down" during the day so it isn't too bright.
I have used one for several years and it really holds up well to pounding through the woods here in Colorado.
Vital gear has an angular single pin. I use the Pentagon 5 pin angular and there is something cool about the angular that keeps vision clear for my older eyes. Good luck!
HHA. It's bulletproof. But not lightweight, nor cheap.
Strong and quality are not compatible with lightweight and cheap.
I also agree about the .019 pin. I can't even see the bubble on the sight but have never NOT been able to see that pin and still be able to see the target.
TD hit it on the head. I love the HHA OL 5519 and the single pin makes live real easy! Not light but real nice.
I have a trophy taker with the moveable .19 single pin. Looks goiod to me
Thanks a million for all the opinions! I have an HHA on my switchback "love it" Just wondered if there was something as good without the weight. Maybe it's like rifles. Lightweight and quality just don't go together. I believed that, until I've owned a DXT for 4 months Wow!!!! Just thought maybe someone out there had done the same for sights.
look at Vital gear startrack
Viper Quickset I think you can get it in the new mathews lost camo too.
All of you guys are saying HHA. He is asking for a light weight sight? The HHA weighs as much as a Hoyt bow? They are great...but they are nowhere neat lightweight. I would go with the VBG angular Proslide. Great sight. Bright and easy to adjust.
I have the Trophy Ridge Titan Hunter Bow Sight on my DXT. and Drenalin. I use .19 for the pin. Only cost 54.99. Without the light option. It's light and bright.
HHA adjustable sight. They are not light but, are very dependable. I have several. They have never let me down. I will take dependable over light everytime.
VIPER, for the tough, lite single pin it rocks, al.
