yes, it should come with 2 plastic spacers that hold the quiver bracket far enough away from the sight to allow for adjustment. If you don't have them, a local pro shop should have an extra set laying around, or a hardware store should have them as well (tell them you need some "stand offs", don't forget you'll need longer quiver mounting screws too!) BTW, this is the same sight I shoot and I love it!!

Default Rookie TIME!!

OK so I look at the sight. Looks cool and all. but a question comes to mind...

How the heck do use it??? It's got 1 stinkin pin? I am assuming that the knob on the bottom is used for adjusting the dot yes? Similar to adjusting the windage on a rifle sight?

Now if I'm off base here tell me cuz I'm call kinda confused. If it doesn't adjust that way, then what. You sight it in for a specific yardage and that's it?

Rick,

I use a similar sight made by HHA.

You loosen the small nob closest to you and slide it up and down for different yardages.

You have a piece of tape with marks on it for different distances.

I personally range my shooting lanes and set the sight when I get to the stand.

It completely eliminates the "I used the wrong pin" excuse.

I have used these kind of sights for about 3 years now.

Hmmm... I may have to look into that then. I have a five pin sight now that is just amazing in low light conditions, but I have a hard time remembering what pin #3 4 & 5 are at. I thought about trying to set each pin for 10 yard increments starting at 20 yards and I gave up. Sounds like this would eliminate all of that.

Does it adjust fairly quickly in the field?

They do adjust quickly..

You'll find out that things happen so quick you wont adjust anything...

If you shootin around 300 fps you can use the same pin for 10, 20 and maybe 30 yards and only be off by an inch or two....

Depending on my stand I might set it on 25 yards and be good out to about 35 or 40.. then just aim for the heart and anything 20 and under.

It's important to practice these different yardages with the pin set at one spot to get a feel for how to adjust your aim.

You might find yourself learning a new and exclusive style....

One-Pin-Lovin!!!!

Hey, I'm tryin.....

Are your pins not colored? Or, are they only 2 colors?

Typically, 10 yd increments is what most people do. If your bow is shooting ultra fast you may need to set your first pin at 25 or 30 yds. Then, do 10 yd increments from there.

When I had my bow set at 72 lbs, I had to start my first pin at 27 yds. I guess I should say, when my bow tech set my bow at 72 lbs. lol It was for a 3D tournament. He convinced me that my arrow flight would be much better. 2 days and 80 targets later, my arm felt like it was ready to fall off! I did have my pins set at rather odd yardages, but it worked. They were 22, 27, 32 and 37. The idea was to split the difference, so to speak, so there would be less room for error. Man, I really hate close shots! (*~*) They always mess me up. Ok, should I hold my first pin low or should I put the 2nd pin on the target? Sheesh! Yeah, I went with the second pin. BINGO!
