I'm fascinated with the single pin sight picture...what single pin slider or adjustable sights are you guys using and why did you choose it...
If you can post pics, even better.....:photos:

i use an hha ol-5000 with a.019 pin for 3-d. i like it b/c its small and light. the slider is really smooth b/c it has teflon slides. it is very simple to use.

After trying a cobra, truglo, sureloc, sword, Ive finally found the perfect sight for ME.
CBE tekhunter 3
Fast adjustment(where the sword lacks), tons of elavation room(which is where all but the sureloc & sword lack), solid, light and compact, Dead Quiet(where the sureloc lacks).
The pins arent really bright(Con for most.doesnt bother me much) the red is the brightest, you can get it with a better scopes for a few more $ as it has a 10/32 thread mounting.
I like the single pin with the option of a pin or 3 below the centered pin for just in case no time to adjust.
Ill try to get pics.

On the other side of the block there is a needle pin and place for sight tapes.

Lonnie, that looks awesome. Has the appearance of being solid and well built....am I right in saying you can get a single pin head for the CBE ??

Hey Ringtail I am thinking about trying a single pin as well. I will go with the Toxonics AR119 Hopefully this link works it is new for 08 Gear driven.http://www.toxonics.com/documents/CLICKHERETODOWNLOADFROMOURWEBSITE_000.pdf

Yes you can buy without the scope ($140) or get it with a CBE 1 pin scope(better fiber) or any scope that has a 10/32 rod mount(pretty much universal in target scopes)
That Tox looks interesting too Mainewoods, I like the price and the 2" of Vert adj.

I used to think that Vital Bow Gear's Startrack was the best single pin slider but my mind has now changed since I got an HHA model. Way better built and has micro adjustment windage. The scope with the 2" housing really works good for me with 1/4" peep! Yeah these old eyes need some help LOL

love my startrack, really like the angled pin, no question about aiming high or low,left or right. I removed the locking lever( didn't seem to lock much anyways) to allow my quiver to mount closer to the riser. Only fault is with the bow, it just shoots to flat to need any sight adjustment.

I cannot say enough about HHA sights. I bought an HHA DS-5519 for my Bowtech General, and when the time came I bought an HHA ELT-5019 for my GTO. Then when I started working on my Bear The Truth project, I bought an HHA BF419.
I have never thought so highly about any brand of any archery equipment in my life. I will shoot only HHA sights for the fore seeable future.

I have an HHA on my XXL and believe them to be well built and thought out sights. My only criticism is that they don't calibrate the full length of their sight tapes. I have talked with them about this and don't believe they will change this policy unless they recieve a lot of complaints. If like me, you would like them to fix this small problem with an otherwise excellent product call them as I did and voice your opinion. If no one complains there won't be any improvement.

i shoot a king cobra 1 sight with a 0.009" and i find it's an awesome sight it's very solid and no so big. i'll try to get an hha if i can find a good deal but i don't think it's gonna work with my T5 mathews quiver
i had to modify my adjustment knob on my king cobra to make it work with the T5

GTOraph, I had to use the longer spacer from Mathews for my T5. My HHA works great.
