Always used a Multi-Pin. Thoughts on Single Pin?

Thought about switching to a single pin this season but ended up sticking with a multi pin. For me, eliminating as much chance of human error as I can is my goal. Having a single pin and making sure to adjust it to the right yardage (first remembering to do it, then setting it correctly) seems like unnecessary steps to me. And I'm sure there are guys that swear they've never had that issue or they always remember, but I'm not gonna chance it. Now if I had a tournament set up, totally different story.

I like the clean lines of a single pin but the lack of movement needed to change yardages if needed while a deer is in front of me that multiple pins gives.

If strictly a target bow it would be a single pin all the way but on a hunting bow (at least for whitetails) give me a good multi pin sight. I might would consider one of the hybrid sights for hunting with 2 pins for 20 and 30 then another pin for longer distances

Had a coworker that loves his HHA single pin sight, missed the biggest buck he said he ever shot at. He was watching a trail at 20 yards and the buck came through in an opening at 40 yards and he forgot to move the sight and missed low. bang

He stuck with the HHA after that but I do not think he has ever forgot that lesson

I just had 60X strings put on and a tune by On Target in Canton and we discussed going to a single pin because of how flat my bow is shooting now. I couldn't set a 20 and 30-yard pin because they were sitting on top of each other, honestly touching. I'm going to shoot it a while like it is and reassess the situation but I see myself buying a single pin here pretty quick.

I cant comprehend how there is an argument that a single pin sight is good in hunting situations unless you are shooting 20 to 30 yds.
When buck fever sets in, remembering to adjust wont happen. What about that movement in the stand?

I agree with everyone on here, if I had a target bow, I would but not a hunting bow.

I think the biggest argument for a single pin comes with having a clean sight picture and the ability to make precise adjustments for range. Critically important at long distance.

I don't think that those same arguments make for a great hunting sight because of the inability to adapt without movement, difficulty under pressure and the problems posed if the animal moves (range, re-dial, etc).

I think for 90% of bowhunters it is hard to go wrong with a well put together 3 pin sight.

I use one. It’s easier than people make it out to be. Very little movement and if you practice you will know most holdovers and not need to adjust for those quick moments

I'd agree with this. But then again no one ever said I'm the smartest in the room
