  • HHA or Sword

    OK gents (and ladies). I am intrigued by the HHA sights. I have shot the Hogg and liked them, but for the money I switched to Sword. I am looking for opinions of shooters who have shot both the HHA and Sword sights.

    Also, isn't trying to remember to adjust your sight because it is set at 20 yards but you ranged the 12pt. at 37 yards just one more thing to worry about, go wrong and therefore miss. With a fixed 3-5 pin, you just use the 3rd pin and be done. No adjustments... Just my thought and question, no offense...

    I just got a Sword Centurion and I do like it better than the HHA I had. Very well built, nice and bright pin, and good price. I do not like multi pin because I like the clear site picture the one pin gives me. When I hunt, I keep it at 25 yards which covers me to 30. I won't shoot over 30 anyway, so I never saw a need in multi pins.
    Did you see the size of that CHICKEN??????

    it's like I'm playin' cards with my brother's kids or somethin'.

      Had both and liked both but right now my edge goes to Sword. I got the Twilight hunter 5 pin with hog light and love it. I don't see how they sell as low as they do either? Lotta quality for the price.

          HHA makes more than just a single pin sight If you are worried about forgetting to slide the sight. My guess is the guy who forgets to slide the sight pin is the same guy who may accidentally pick the wrong pin on a multi????? I own 4 HHA sights and do not see me ever shooting anything else.

            If you have time to range the deer you have time to slide the sight. It doesn't take any time to adjust. It takes me longer to get my release on my d-loop sometimes.

            But the one time I had a problem I had marks at 20, 30 ,40 and 50 on the tape. I always leave the sight at 20 yards that way I know my drops and such in case I don't have time to adjust. I forgot to reset the sight to the 20 mark. I had a doe come in down a trail, by a tree I knew was 30. Looked down slid sight up one mark, shot, missed the doe clear over her back. She just stopped and looked around. I had the sight set at 30, and slid the sight to 40, so I was about 12" high.

            I can't stand to look through all those pins.

            I like my HHA.

              Sword Centurion is the way to go IMO....SOLID sight. I put 5 pins in mine - 5 set to 60, than I can adjust if out spot and stalking and have a long range shot. Best of both worlds.

                I have done this one other time, I have 2 HHA sights, 2xR if you would like I would be willing to send you one of my HHA's for you to try out. When you are done with it send it back to me all you would have to cover would be the shipping back. That way you can form your own opinion without spending your money on the HHA. I like the HHA, I like the looks of the Sword also. I will probably be buying a sword in the near future. But I thought that I would throw it out there and see if you would like to try it. Right now both my HHA's are in Rattlers hands and I believe he has sent them back to me along with my Spot Hogg. If you would like to try this then shoot me your address in a PM.

                    Just tryin to help out where I can, If given the oppourtunity to try something before buying one I would love it. It helps when you were from Texas as I myself once was. I had to relocate to Arkasas for my job.

                        sights

                        I've got the HHA DS-XL5519 on two of my bows right now. I like the dial vs the slider better myself. As far as remembering to adjust or rembering to use the right pin, either way you just need to get comfortable with whatever equipment you use. I aslo used the HHA's last year and I really like them. The Swords are very nice, well built sights also. I had one, a 5 pin,twight hunter on a bow and liked that one as well. Either sight will be very nice. You just need to try and pick which you think will for you and get used to it and all will be good. Swords are very good sights, especially for the money. HHA's are very good also but the prices on those just keeps climbing ! Good luck with your choice.

                            I sure like mine. 6 pins and a slider for target practice is fun shooting.
                            Wont need it for hunting but its sure a blast to have a pin to hold solid for a 75 yard shot. with just a bump of the slider.
                            No ifs and or buts Just maybee.
