hey guys,
is it feasible with some of these new faster bows to shoot only one pin from zero to thirty yards? what about you switchback shooters, how do you mark your yardage pins?
thanks!

No its not

I shoot one pin.

Any archers advantage or Tap programs will prove witout a doubt its impossiable.

You can shoot withing 2" inchs high or low.

I set mine at 25yrd shooting 275fps. Very accurate, just learn to aim high or low.

I've had my SlayR shooting 299fps at 27" and 53#. Sighted it in for 25 yards. The shot 20 and 30 yards with that sight setting. The spread between 20 and 30 yards was approximately 2 1/2". About 3/4" high at 20 and 1 3/4" low at 30.

I've had other bows shooting right around 260fps. With a sight set for 25 yards my high point at 20 yards is about 1 /34" and about 3" low at 30 yards.

Does this help any?

Give you a idea

Deermans has a one pin class at there worlds

Nothing over 30 yrds.

I hit 21 - 15 rings which is equal to a 12 ring in ASA. 21 out of 30 and never missed a 10 ring. One pin is very accurate for hunting. :thumbs_up

I highly recommend it

One pin for me

I shoot only 1 pin. I have my bow set at 55 lbs with a 28" draw length. I zero my pin at 22 yards and it works great. At 10 yards I am about 1/2 to 1 " high and at 30 yards I am about 1/2" to 1" low. I really like this set up. This allows me to keep things very simple when I am up in the tree stand.

I have a Bowtech Old Glory and I use one pin out to 30yds and I get about an inch drop. It is a real flat shooter. Mine is set at 55lbs also, no telling what it would do at 70lbs. Maybe some on here can give us an idea what a 70lb Bowtech will do. I'd like to know.

Soon as my HHA 5000 gets in I'll be using one pin out to 60yds. :wink: :wink:

I've got my Switchback shooting the same pin from 0-30 yards within about 1" of each other. Then I have a 40, 50 and 60 yard pin (50 & 60 are for practice only) ;)

About this 0-30 Ive just purchased a HD-24 set at 65 lbs. with a 30 inch draw length with 75 percent let off, im shooting 1 pin and at 65lbs. there dont seem to be a 1/4 inch diffence from 10 out to 30 yards and that is holding dead center. oh yeah im shooting a 26 inch goldtip carbon arrow with 100 grain fieldtip.

My Bowtech Extreme VFT doing 301 fps., seems to be a little less than an inch high at 20yds with my 30yd pin. I hunt with 2 pins a 30 and 40 can't see the need for more pins.

I have a 70# Switchback shooting a 437 grain arrow (BH included), and have one pin out to 20 yards, then one pin at 30, 40, 50, 60 (yes, the 50 and 60 are for practice). :D
With a lighter arrow I might be able to have one pin to 30, but not now.

6 pins 30-80 yds.
shooting a bowtech pro 40, 72#, 28" draw, 27" axis 400, 5" helical feathers, 85 gr. sonics, arrow weight at 403 gr.

i don't know how you guys measure the inch distance low for your 10-15-20 yd shots i just know on my 3D deer target for me to make a 10 yd shot i aim at the bottom of the deers chest to hit the lungs, to make a 20 yd shot i aim at the heart to hit the lungs.

Not likely. See the trajectory data above for an arrow faster than yours. You may not realize it, but you're doing something to compensate in form or unconscious aiming if you are getting that little change in impact over that much distance.

I think im gona be called a tard BUT im shooting 1 pin 20 and 30 and you can hit the same spot from either distance...i use a red snuff can lid to practice with and ill drill it from 20 or 30....im shooting a bowtech alleg. with 71# 30 DL and 365 grain arrow...(arrow weight may vary, cant remeber if its 362 or 372 so i comprimised) 328 FPS before i decided to become a bow technician. now crackers got it.

i might be compensating without realizing it but i dont think so.

Many things can cause one to think that their bow is shooting flatter then it is....
1) is truly DEAD on @ 20....and I mean DEAD on? not 1 or 1.5" high? verified with a shooting machine?
2) When you shoot 30 yards are you DEAD middle or maybe a close? group has some high ones and some low ones.... where is the center of group...

I have run the ballistic data for you and it shows you will hit more then 3" low @ 30 which is actualy pretty darn flat!!!! :D
