    Thumbs up HHA Sight Review

    Hey Folk's,
    I want to give everyone a review on the HHA sight I just picked up.
    First off, this is the new DS-5510, yes you read it right, it is a
    .010 fiber. This sight is very easy to set up, just two bolts and it is
    ready to mount on your bow. Once I put it on my bow I set the
    pin in the center of my string and walked outside.
    After 3 or 4 shots I was dead on at 20 yards, so I worked my way
    back to 60 yards. Once I was happy with my groups at 60, I put the
    site tape on that matched the marks I put on for 20 and 60.
    I walked back out and started shooting at 27, 33, 44 and 52 yards,
    just to make sure the sight tape was right. It was perfect!!!
    As for the sight it's self, it's flawless. Very clean, no rattles at all.
    The .010 fiber is very crisp with no starburst at all. And you can adjust
    the rheostat housing to set the brightness of your pin.(SWEET!!!)
    A few other things I would like to mention is that there is no need
    for tools to adjust this sight once it is mounted on your bow, and the
    sight tape's were all included.
    So to end my review I would like to give the HHA DS-5510
    a FIVE out of FIVE stars for a great sight.

    Thanks,
    Shawn Hatem

    Awesome sight for sure, I have the 5519 and just ordered the .010 housing today...

    Was the pin bright enough in the .010 for you in lower light?

    Cool - I just got the 0L-5000 on an Elite Energy I just picked up. I have'nt had time to shoot this sight yet. Very curious as to how I will like it compared to my norm of using the Sword Twilight Hunter. Just not sure that in a stand when the moment arrives I'd be too happy about haveing to adust that pin on a seconds notice if the deer changes distant in a hurry. HHhhmmm...

    Yes Sir,

    The pin was perfect in low light.
    No need for a light at all, I just opened up the rheostat.

    I was looking in the Lancaster catalog and I see they offer the .010
    pin on the OL5500. It has the rheostat also, but no yardage wheel. I
    was wondering how the .010 pin looked? I was thinking replacing my
    OL5000 with a .019 pin.

    I see what you are saying, but the way I look at it is, I will
    move a few more inches to adjust my sight than I would to
    hook my release on the string.

    The .010 fiber is very bright and crisp. (no starburst at all)

    Was your bubble level spot on or did you have to compensate? I had to shim my HHA to get the bubble level with the bow. Great bright sight for sure.
    If it looks like crap, smells like crap, tastes like crap, lies like crap; it’s more than likely a politician from Illinois.

    Thumbs up

    Just got the same sight and love it so far. Havent got the room for 60yrds so that will have to wait till the weekend. Think im going to like the single pin a heck of a lot more than a multi pin. The sight picture is SOO much better. Cant wait till fall!!

    Can you post a pic of the sight housing? I have a number of them with the .019 pin size and would like to see what the .010 looks like for a comparison.

    Been looking at getting an HHA myself. I really like the tiny pin (.010). Can you shoot beyond 60 yards if you choose to? Any deals out there on these right now??

    Do you have to change your anchor when you move sight up or down?

    I set my peep at 40 yards, so I don't have any trouble at 20 or 60.

    Nope

    Nope, no third axis. But I have never had a hunting sight
    with a third axis, and never had any issues.

    I do think HHA makes a great sight. They are very solid and I love the scope availability. I was wondering if the range wheel on the back has an adjustment to move the sight tape without moving the sight to finely adjust the tape. That was one of my turnoffs from the old HHA's since they didn't have a way to finely adjust the tape without removing it.



    I am with SWbuckmaster. I have had to re-glue bubble to set 3rd axis because out west it is a must to have 3rd axis level. A wrong bubble at 40 yds spells trouble. Unfortunately my favorite sites the vital gears don't have it so I finally went with a spott hogg.

    Thanks a bunch, I kind of figured it would be.. The .019 is one of the brightest I have ever used, I used my rheostat more then i thought I would...

    You sure can, just did it to mine when i put my new strings on.. Just take the HHA cover off the wheel (2 screws) and loosen the screw that holds the wheel and do all the fine tuning you want...

    Might have a .019 head available next week, if you interested send me a PM...
