    I recently got into archery, I have a question about whether to use a single sight pin or multiple sight pins. Right now I'm using multiple sight pin. It seems like the multiple sight clogs up my vision and target. Is using a single sight pin better or just keep using the same sight?

    Its really a matter of preference. As I am getting older I prefer a moveable single pin sight as it clears up my sight picture and helps me to aim better. Each has it advantages and disadvantages.

    As mention above its all about preference. I changed to a single pin last year. It does take some getting used to especially when it comes to if your targets will be at a set distance or various distances. It just takes some practice. And as I learned, you may have to fine tune the site not the pin when you start shooting farther distances. Good luck.

    It is a matter of preference. Many people say they love how a single pin sight eliminates the clutter of pins in their view. I made the switch several years back to a Single pin and I have not regretted it.

    there's a bunch of good ones out there but HHA is probably the most popular/well known.

    If you're brand new to archery, the EZV sight is an option. I just changed to one after 30 years of pins.

    I've had good luck with my HHA, previously I had a Cobra. They were both single pins. With the peep I use, the single pin is best for me. I also shoot with both eyes open. It all comes down to preference.
