    That's a very nice set up DoubleS. I can hear my friend Kev drooling over his keyboard.

    Robust is important, as a couple of years ago, at the National 3D Championship, someone managed to kick my bow over, while I was away taking a 'natural break' just before the start. I only realised what had happened when I picked up the bow, and found two of the fibres broken

    It was an easy (if slightly tense) fix and the Davis had not moved a millimetre, but it just goes to show that there are some real clowns about, even at big (750 entrants) archery shoots.

    Need to start googling, and see who sells what over here.

    Any more suggestions?

    Not for a 5 pin sight, but if you were looking for a single pin slider, I'd have a bunch more to say about the benifits of HHA OL 5519's, but use of that sight would most likely put you into a different class.

    You are right, it would move me to the Unlimited class, where they use ...I can hardly bare to type it....release aids

    I have a single pin HHA on my Unltd bow. Not had time to set it all up properly, but it seems to work well.

    For my Ltd bow, it has to be a 5 pin.

    That Truglo mentioned is only one I've noticed with different pins sizes. They are bright pins.
    Not a real high end sight, but I have a different Truglo model and it has been a good one, holding up well to my outdoor 3D shooting and spot/stalk hunting I do in the Idaho mtns.

    I'm sold on Sword sights, I own 5. They are about as indistructable as you can get.
    Very bright pins and come in .029, .019 and .010.
    They are a bit costly but I purchased all mine off the AT classifieds and havent paid over $55 for one.

    I use a trophy ridge alpha V5 5 pin sight. the pins are vertical (less cluter in sight for me), has a level at the bottom of sight housing. Not sure of the pin size, 3rd pin down is red (40 yrd for me) the rest are hi vis green.
