    I am currently shooting the EZV. The jury is still out on how I feel about this site, and I have been thinking more and more about just switching to a single pin. What I do love about the EZV is the open site picture and being able to look at what I am shooting at.

    Let me know what you’re running!

    I'm still shooting my HHA Tetra 4 pin from my elk hunt, but plan on switching back to the single pin scope before the rut kicks in. I just need to find the time to do it. For my whitetail hunt, I don't think you can beat a good single pin sight. I typically set it at 23-25 yards and leave it there the entire season.

    CBE Engage Micro Hybrid 3 pin set to 20-30-40 but with it being a slider i can still practice at longer distances to make those 30 yard shots feel like a chip shot!

    Still sporting the Spott Hogg Fast Eddie XL. I like it but i want to try a non slider. Ive tightened it down and it wasnt seated all the way. One more thing that can go wrong. I shot a target after i got back from morning hunt and i was off by about 6 inches!

    edit: by “non slider” i meant dovetail not the housing up and down

    I have an Option 8s oval sight. I have 3 fixed pins and the 4th mover pin. I love being able to use it as a fixed or a single pin.

    HHA Tetra/single pin .019 .... I leave it at 25 yds and am good to 40 with holding level on a deers back ..... simply fool proof for me 5-40 yds .... .... faster your bow/arrow, the longer your kill window... mine is 5-33 yds (290 fps).... anything further I just hold over as I do my rifle scopes .. been doing this for well over 20 yrs ...

    Switched to hha single pin this year. Really like it so far practicing. Hope to get a shot at a deer with it this year. Love the ability to adjust the brightness and having one pin makes it so easy to focus on pin placement

    I am using the trophy ridge react h5 sight for me. I like the versatility that this sight has to offer. Cons- little cluttered sometimes with the 5 pins, but most of my shots are within 30 yards so I'm not really looking at my other pins anyways.

    I'm using a Trophy Ridge React Trio. I noticed when i purchased, that not a lot of people used this sight. I, personally like the sight. The 1st two(horizontal) pins are stationary can be set 10-20, the 3rd(vert.) goes from 30(fixed) to 100+(slider) depending on the bow. There's no clutter of pins, setting up is simple, but can be a pain if not mech. inclined!

    Just curious, why is 23-25 yards your magic number?

    He may not see this right away so if you @Justin it may help him see your question. I’m guessing he has worked out those yardages with a 3D target and his personal setup.

    Black Gold single pin slider. I leave it set on 25 30 yards and adjust hold point depending on shot distance. Although, I do find the idea and elimination for a rangefinder with the EZV intriguing.
