    Single pin slider for me..
    Set at 25 yards
    All my shots are between 15 and 30 yards..
    If I feel the urge to take a longer shot.. I will have time to adjust the slider

    I have shot multi pin up until this year. This year im using the HHA ol-5510. I have two confirmed kills with the single pin and Im lovin it. The reason I switched is because I had a problem when using the multipin. I would draw and got caught up in the moment and would not focus ONE pin on the spot. I ended up placing all my pins on the animal and taking the shot. So therefore problem is solved with one pin

    I just switched this year too. From a Spot Hogg SDP to a HHA Ultra XL-5519. Great sight and I love the simplicity of the sight picture, especially for hunting. Also, increased my target/3D accuracy significantly. I set mine at 20 yards while I'm hunting, since I rarely shoot more than 25 anyway.

    My best advice is to familiarize yourself with it before you hunt with it, and really get used to using it. I really try to be careful to return it to the 20 yard marker after every round of shooting, but I did put a nice field point hole in my backstop (shed) from not adjusting my wheel from 60 yards while shooting at 20...

    I would like to try a slider next season but do not like how the pins come up from the bottom of the sight housing. For some reason I like them to come in from the side like a multi-pin sight.

    Multi pin for me, I just don't like the idea of extra movement if I have to move my pin for a longer shot, but I like the idea of 1 pin for a cleaner sight window.

    HHA makes a bracket that helps with some quivers. Take your bow with sight installed to your proshop and see what works, but you may need to try a different quiver...

    yep, that or call HHA. They'll send you spacers and longer mounting bolts at no charge. At least they did for me. HHA's CS is top notch

    HHA OL 5519. I can't imagine ever going back to a fixed pin again.

    I really enjoy my single pin (adjustable). HHA all the way.
    My Gear: A bow, some arrows, and some accesories...all of which I probably spent way too much money for.

    I shoot with an HHA as well and use a plate that mounts between the riser and the sight. It comes out towards the string and goes up a little bit. You can find it here: http://www.kwikeekwiver.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=77 I got lucky and bought it at a hunting show for like $5.
