What are the best pin colors for aging eyes? I use the fl. green but was wondering about the yellow, red, blue colors which would be better?

From two of our resident Optometrists: Green first then yellow. I go green, yellow and green on my 3 pin slider. Forget about the red. When they first told me I checked and the red pin “stared” the most. Additionally, I have a verifier on each of my bows and my elder eyes are happy again. Good luck. C

I go all green and just paint the pin bodies a different color for quick reference.

I’ve alternated green and yellow for many, many years.

My 20, 30 and 40. are green, then 50 is red, then 60 & 70 are green again. Easy for me to reference up or down from my 50 (red) pin. Agree with others, than red is least visible (to me at least) but using yellow at 50 was too similar to the green to quickly pick it up.

Just flo. green on a single slider pin. Keeping it simple.

From: Russell
For my fix pin sight, I have green at 20 and 30 yards, 40 yards is red, and 50 and 60 yards are green.

My single pin slider, has a green pin

My pins are green, red, yellow, green and red. 30,40,50,60 and 70 yards. The 50 yd yellow is the hardest to see for me. It is also the first .010" pin on my sight.

From: Ermine
I see green the best. And then yellow and red the worst. I have green, yellow, green, alternating

Another vote, with age, for green. Red is worse, for me.

Single pin slider green here too

Blue doesn’t halo.

From: Bowboy
Green for me also!

From: Shuteye
Single slider green pin. Jeff Hopkins made mine for me way before they were available in stores. He had rolls of fiber optic material. I complained to him that I had trouble seeing my pin early and late in the day. He made the sight while I watched and I killed a lot of deer with that sight. The best part was, it was free. He was world champ shooter when he did that for me.

All green here!

From: Boatman71
My 49 year old eyes like Blue. I have experimented a lot with different colors and I continue to go back to Blue. I think it is a personal choice. As said before, Blue does not starburst as easily as the other colors.

From: Buck Watcher
My eyes are old I have 3 green pins on all my sights. I never tried blue but am interested.
