I'm looking to switch to a single pin slider for this fall and I've got it narrowed down to the VBG ProSlide or one of the HHA sliders. Since I often do a fair amount of cold weather hunting (e.g. -10 to -25 celsius) I was wondering if anyone has experienced any problems with the slider mechanism in the cold? I.e. stiff to adjust, binding, etc.

Thanks in advance and shoot 'em straight!

I'm sure that ether of these sights would work well for you. I have used the HHA-OL-5000 at below zero fahrenheit and have no problem.

HHA here too, and never had a problem.

Another thing to consider is, you normally wont be sliding the sight while hunting.

I just set mine to a certain distance and hunt like its a regular sight. The sliding is just for long range practice (50-80). I modified mine to carry another pin from the top though. You may want to look into a slider that can carry two pins, its better for hunting. You normally dont have time to adjust in the heat of the moment. HHA makes a three pin for sure, and I beleive VBG does too.

hope that helps----Matt

Thanks for the replies... glad to hear that the slider doesn't seem to be affected by the cold.

Matty - Good point on the multiple pin slider setup and I see that both HHA and VG both carry models like this.

Thanks again and good luck in the woods this fall!

My HHA performed great in -10 last December. HHA makes a great product and has great customer service to back up their products. Good luck this fall!
