I’m an avid archery hunter who to likes to push his skills to the limit to prepare in preparation for hunting season. Frequent long-range practice makes short-distance shots from a treestand much easier. I prefer to practice at long distances to ensure my set-up is fine-tuned and an adjustable sight makes it easier for me to dial into the exact yardage. I’ve owned multi-pin sights that were equipped with as many as seven pins in the housing but that became cumbersome at full-draw, especially in low-light situations. For me, having too many pins is cumbersome and distracting.
Single pin sights are great for someone that gets distracted by multi-pin sights. This will allow you to focus on one pin and one pin only, regardless of the distance. A simple turn of the dial and you could shoot from 20 yards to 100+ yards with the most adjustable sights on the market, but that depends on your set-up. However, the downside of only having one pin means that you have to adjust it on the fly. Adjusting my pin in the heat of the moment isn’t my ideal scenario.
Imagine watching the buck you’ve had your eye on all season chase a doe under your stand and stop broadside at 20 yards, you adjust your pin and get ready to draw back but as you draw back the buck starts to chase the doe again and stops at 45 yards, slightly quartering away. and you have to You have to let down from full draw, adjust the sight to the correct yardage again before drawing again to attempt the shot.
Multipin sights allow me to shoot quickly, regardless of yardage but they can be distracting and cumbersome. Single pin sights allow you to fine-tune each shot to the precise yardage and there are less distractions in the sight housing. However, adjusting the sight at full draw is impossible and risky. But there’s one other option, a multi-pin adjustable sight.
The Trophy Ridge React Trio. Personally, I fell in love from the start and I couldn’t believe how quickly it was for me to sight my bow in from 20-100 yards. This sight offers the hunter the best of both worlds, three fixed pins for your most common shooting distances (20, 30 and 40 yards) and the capabilities of adjusting the sight out to 100+ yards for longer yardages.
