Decided on a HHA site for hunting.Can't decide between .010 or .019.I know aim miss small is a good motto, but is .010 to small for a hunting bow.None of the shops I have been to have a .010 model,so I have not been able to see one in person.

I've messed around with my SWAT and Axcel .10 pins on a 3D deer, pig and turkey and even though some people have a hard time, "I'm told" with .10 pins out side, I really like em'... I'd say wait and try some...

0.010 is fine if you can see them under hunting conditions.

Sights that have a wrap, or some way to extend the fibre optic material are fine, short fibers, not with my eyes.

I just think .010 is to small and is to hard to see first thing in the morning and late evening. I perfer .019 pins and I dont think they are to big, just the right size.

my first 2 pins are .019..second two are .010. first pin is 20 yds and second is 30 yds...i very rarely find myself wanting to shoot at an animal longer than 30 yards in fading ligh..especially in the woods. hard to see those small limbs and twigs. so this combo works great for me

I have two .19's and three .10's on my sight.
I have no problems with the .10's and now wish I had gone with all five.

.19 is my recomendation.

1. Better light/visibility.
2. Less shakey sight picture.

first two as .19, and .010 after is not a bad combo.
I used this combo for a while.

Although I dont feel .010 sufficient in low light, I have no business taking 40 and 50 yards shots at low light times.

.19 is just the right compromise as smallest without two much percieved movement. I use .19 for target shooting as well.
