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

    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
