    I tried to search but it kept come up with search error.

    What's the best single pin sight? Right now I'm running a spot Hogg real deal 5 pin on my Chill R & a G5 Rock on my Arena 30. Wanting to go to a single but not sure which one. I'm looking for the most versatile. I really want to get into long range target shooting100+ yards.

    I have shot HHA for years, they are nice. The new HHA King Pin with dovetail is nice and let's you push it out, but spendy.
    Also a fan of Hogg Father and I'm liking the dual pin option available on the Tommy Hogg XL. Thinking of updating.... We'll see.
    You can't beat the brightness of the HHA 55xx series with .010.

    A single pin wouldn't be my choice for long range shooting, but as far as single pin sights go, the HHA single pin seems to be very popular. That's what I use. I love it.

    I have HHA sights on all my bows. They are built really well. The pins are very bright and with the adjustable rheostat you can adjust how bright they are. The are easy to sight in and makes shoot long distances a lot easier for me.

    Another vote here for HHA. Not only are they well built, their customer service is second to none.

    Had a HHA in the past. Good sight. Have a Spot Hogg Tommy Hogg now. Good sight also. Prefer the Spot Hogg.

    I'm went to a Spot Hogg Tommy Hogg for the best of both worlds. I've got the three pin model where the bottom pin is used as your movable pin. Once you sight in you use the bottom pin with the adjutment wheel out to 100+ yards.

    Axcel, HHA, Spot Hogg all make great single pin sights.

    Another vote for HHA. Customer service was great the one time I needed to call. Mostly didn't need CS after initial setup.

    I have the Black Gold Ambush Ascent. I love it. I find the pins brighter than the HHA.

    I have the HHA Kingpin and it has been my first single pin site. I have loved the site and my accuracy improved quite a bit by using it. The only draw back is adjusting on the fly in a hunting situation but once you learn how to compensate you are good to go. I normally set it at 25 yards and am good out to about 40 without adjusting.

    I started with a Cobra single pin but have shot with an HHA for almost 10 years.

    Black gold ascent is what I have and like it. Really like how bright it is and how it changes depending on the lighting. No need to have a light.
