In putting together the new Mathews Chill R I new I wanted a new sight but wasn’t sure which I wanted. My very first sight was an adjustable single pin and I liked the simplicity. The last few years I’ve been shooting a nice 4 pin sight but I really didn’t do a great job sighting it in and for the random yardages live targets often appear I just wasn’t confident. So I made the decision to go back to the single pin adjustable. I looked at a few models but the clear winner for me was HHA, and I ended up with the HHA Optimizer Lite Ultra DS-5519.
HHA essentially owns the single pin adjustable sight market. They’ve won awards year after year for their sights and really after you get your hands on one you’ll see why. I went with the Lite Ultra series and chose the DS-5519 model. It weighs 10oz, has a 1 and 5/8″ housing and 5ft of fiber optic leading to a .019 pin. One of the different features exclusive to the Lite Ultra series is the Rheostat adjustment. Essentially the outer right of the sight housing is adjustable, you move it forward or back to cover or uncover the fiber optic thus adjusting the brightness of the pin. I also went ahead and added the 2nd and 3rd axis adjustment bracket to push that sight housing just a little further out from the bow to make it that much more accurate.
