    I’ve had the same bow forever. Then purchased a different one and went with a Spot Hogg single pin. Not really working for me. Looking for a fixed pin probably a 5 pin. Been out of the game a while so don’t really know much anymore. Last one was nice because didn’t need tools to adjust. Looking for recommendations. Thanks in advance

    For a fixed pin sight I like Axcel Rheotech. For everything else I like the HHA tetra

    Check out a Black Gold Rush, comes with many different # of pin options. The pins a super bright and are bomb proof.

    I use the trophy ridge react h5. They have a few models that are also similar also.

    I don't know what to tell you if you don't like a Spott Hogg.

    What don't you like about it? The vertical pin, or the adjustment? I get not liking a slider pin sight set up; but I never want to shoot horizontal pins again.

    I have a Trophy Ridge React v5 (5 vertical pins) that I really, really like on my backup bow.

    All the pins are micro-adjustable (on the fly- but if you need to completely sight in for real you have to do it before you hunt.)

    I have only had to adjust this sight once in 7 seasons, and that's when I moved it to this bow from my primary. It's rock solid, and pretty bright. Easy to shoot the gaps. Also, the 3rd pin is red and once that is too dim to see in natural light, you are almost out of (or before) legal/ethical shooting light. It's a great barometer for that.

    It’s not that I don’t like the Spot Hogg, I don’t care for a single pin adjustable style. I purchased it for the ability to start shooting long distance in the yard. I just looking to try a 5 pin style.
