I know a couple of companys make these. I like the concept but I haven't held one in my hand. I assume the entire sight moves? Or does someone make it where just the pin inside the sight moves?

Also if anyone uses one, please give me feedback on it. I might change it up for next years season. Then again I might just stay with a 5 pin, but I do like the idea of training out to 100 yards or so.

I use a 4 pin Tommy Hogg by Spot-Hogg. 20, 30, 40 ,50 and then the entire housing moves to make the bottom pin 60,...130.
Extremely tough and vibration/noise free set up.

Flawless tracking and return to zero :cool:

It might be good for practicing long distances but I would always be worried it might not go back to zero in a hunting situation.

I can also be added to this list, I have 2 (a 3 pin and a 4 pin though).

Now from looking at that sight, the entire housing and all the pins move as you slide it correct? Does it ever get confusing?

I like the concept behind the Trophy taker one, just the one pin moves, the other 5 are stationary along with the housing. I want to hunt with a 5 pin, but I want to be able to practice out to 100 so that the 50-60 yard shot if presented is more comfortable.

I set my 4-pin like this to help me differentiate:

Green - 10-30 yds
Amber - 40 yds
Green - 50 yds
Red - 60yds and floater

This helps me differentiate my floater pin; which I don't actually use much other than practicing.

I currently have a Limbsaver Prism Sight Elite with the added single adjustable pin. It works pretty good. But I have never made a tape for it so its been rather useless on that front. Ive been thinking about the 5 pin Black Gold Ascent Verdict with the 1 3/4" housing. One reason is I like the idea of a magnification lens for target shooting which I think would be nice since I have one bow to use for everything. I bought an Apex Covert 4 pin adjustable before I decided I wanted something different and it has a stop on it that you just dial it down until it stops and its back to 0..
