Ok I am going to set-up my new sight tonight for my bow. I have a Trident Hunter from Sword sights and it is a 5 pin slider/adjustable sight. Do you guys have any tips for setting one up? Do you start by sighting in the 30 yard pin then adjust the others around it and then deal with your sight tape? I know how I would set-up a normal sight just confused on the slider and where I should set it at? Should I start with just sliding the sight until my 20 yard pin works than adjust all the other pins individually than make my sight tape?

Just my opinion here, sight in from 30 to 70 or 20 to 60, however you're going to set the first pin, then set your tape according to your first marker after your last pin. That's how I have done it to keep it simple...

Before you even begin to sight it in make sure that its leveled.

On my Tommy Hogg I sighted in my 40yrd pin first. Then adjusted the rest of my pins to that.
