    10 to 50 in 10 yard increments wouldn't work as your 10 and 20 yard pin have essentially the same path of trajectory.

    Maybe try something like 20-30-40-45-50 or 20-30-35-40-45.

    For us to really help you it would be helpful for us to know what your draw weight/arrow speed is...

    For almost any 3D course you will not see a shot inside 20- there will be very only be a few inside 25. There are generally few targets where the range ends in "0."

    As such, my general rule in regards to my 5 pin set ups is I sight in at 5 yard increments after the 2nd pin...25/35/40/45/50. That way you can be off a bit in your range estimation but it won't affect your shot placement as much. Arrows drop a lot after 35 yards...not so much between 20-35.

    With that set up; I'm only 2" high at 20, 2 inches low at 30 with my first pin. If I mess up my range and shoot my 35 on a 30 yard target, I'm only 2-3" high.
