Vertical pin sights

5 posts in this topic

I used a Trophy Ridge Flatliner sight two years ago - I really liked the vertical pin design, but overall didn't care for the sight as far as durability and adjustments. Doesn't seem like there are too many other vertical pin sights on the market to choose from other than adjustable models.

So I'm wondering, are vertical pin sights not very popular? I personally would like to see more options.

Coots- I have tried them as well.. And really like the concept. However, I'm not totally sod!.. I like to be able to focus on my target! If the pin is for the exact distance, all the better, hair is going to fly and stuff is going to bleed!!!! With Vertical pins you get more horizontle viewing, which is great.. But to gap shoot(between distances) you have to cover your exact target, and what you cover it with is not your sight pin.

When I aim, I am for a hair, not a spot.. aim small , miss small. that type of sight did not allow me that.. But then again, what works for one, may or may not work great for someone else.

I say try it, you may love it.. It just didn't work for me.

Mostly I'm disappointed at the lack of options on the market with vertical pins. Maybe a single, moveable vertical pin sight would fit my style.

I had a Trophy Ridge and went and it seemes to always be moving and off. I switched back to my pendulem and now I'm happy again. I have never shot deer so well with this sight.

Not the cheapest sight but very sturdy,very light and a pin as bright as anything on the market.. Had mine for 3 yrs now with no problems at all . Have adjustments for 30 - 100 yds... startrackoc5.jpg
