    Hey guys, I just ordered a axcel armortech vision with 0.10 size pins. Just wondering what pin size everyone likes and anybody use this sight.

    0.19 for top two pins set at 30 and 40 yds with a 0.10 for a third set at 50.

    That's what I was thinking, the sight I have now at 30 yards the pin covers the target. Was worried about pin brightness though.

    I have that sight but I have .019 pins.
    I do have the light but it is very bright and only use it inside a blind and rarely.

    I have the dovetail version of that sight in both .010 and .019. I use the .010 for 3d and the .019 for hunting.

    I wouldn't have any reservations using the .010 for hunting though.

    Both are plenty bright for treestand use.

    I run a .010 pin on any sight not using a dovetail. On my sights with dovetails I run .019 pins. These are both my hunting bows.

    I'm running .019 now but really think I need to try .010. I've noticed that the larger pins look blurry sometime. Then again, maybe I just need glasses. :)

    I have been running .019 for a while, but bought a '16 CBE Tek Hybrid Pro sight last summer to put on my Prime Rival that was configured with a single up-pin in .010. I just could not see that thing in less than ideal light, so I ended up contacting CBE for a .019 green replacement. On an older True Glo Range Rover I have on the bench, it runs an .029 and that thing looks HUGE.

    That's the way mine were, I got my new sight and I'm glad I went with the .10 pins.

    It sucks cause i have to run .19 on my sights now due to poor eye sight. Bifocals really, really suck. .10 i couldnt focus in anymore. Lol
