Moondog all depends on the sight you are using I use a Sightmark (listed below for reference) and its 3 10 or 65. I usually just stick with 10

ya know i set mine up at 25, 35, 45, 55. and i have learned where to place the pin on anything under 25yds. really there isnt that much movement from 7yds to 25 yds. maybe 4 inches. and 55 yds is just for play. i hit the target and i hit a pie plate at that range but i feel my shot would be too slow to be effective.

I am a big fan of adjustable pin sites for this very reason. I use a G5 site that has a set pin at 20 yards and a second moveable pin that I have sited in out to 60 yards. The reality is, as a treestand hunter, I will rarely shoot beyound 40 yards.

Not a fan of the pendulem. But I am a fan of HHA, Spot Hogg, and G5.

Moondog,

I've been using the Trophy Ridge Micro Pyro 4 Pin and found it to be a rather good sight. Mine are set for 20, 30, 40, and 50.
Be Safe,
