One of the best single-pin sights you will have the pleasure of using is HHA’s OL-5519 Optimizer Lite. This versatile sight is part of the 5500 series lineup and delivers on both performance and construction quality. It is user friendly and a breeze to set up. The OL-5519 will mount to just about any compound bow without a hitch. This sight is sure to tighten up groups and increase shooting distances by providing the technology that will build confidence.
OL-5519 Single Pin Sight Specs
The OL-5519 comes with various yardage tapes that will correspond to your bow and how you shoot. After the initial setup it is a simple matter of following the instructions to determine which tape will best suit your needs. It is recommend by HHA Optimizer Lite reviews to shoot a few practice rounds at 20 yards and 40 yards to check your consistency and then apply the correct tape.
Once sighted in at 20 yards and 60 yards you will have a full range between 20 yards and 80 yards. Some archers even get up to 95 yards. It is remarkable how easy it is to go from shooting 20 yards to moving out to 30 yards and taking it up to 60 yards with confidence. HHA relies on basic math to ensure accuracy. Their Range, Dial, Shoot (R.D.S.) tapes are marked with five yard increments, making it simple to perform quick mathematical calculations. However, the sight can also be adjusted in single yard increments.
Optimizer Lite OL-5519 Construction
The ease of use comes largely from the design and build quality of the OL-5519. Not only is it made out of durable CNC machined aluminum, but it is put together with precision that allows for parts to move smoothly and sturdily without becoming loose. As HHA Optimizer Lite reviewers indicate, you can really feel the high caliber craftsmanship in the moving parts.
Options on the Optimizer Lite
In the OL-5500 series there are many options to choose from. The OL-5519 is aptly named that for its .019 pin size, which refers to the diameter of the fiber optics in the sight. This version also has 5’ of fiber optic cable safely guarded by HHA’s indestructible CNC machined A.R.M.O.R. pin protection.
That, combined with the 1 ⅝” sight housing, makes for a super tough piece of gear that can withstand some of the more extreme hikes and weather conditions. The windage and elevation adjustments are tool-free micro knobs and the yardage dial also requires no tools to tweak.
Use After Installing The OL-5519 Bow Sight
Once the sight is installed on the bow you won’t have a need for tools. The OL-5519, unlike some of the other models, includes a mechanical rheostat. Simply twist a section of the housing to adjust the pin brightness by controlling how much light the fiber optics receive. This makes it a viable option for both bright and low light shooting.
Other Awesome Features
Other notable features include the built in level, green sight ring, mounting holes for a quiver, and a Mathews harmonic damper that provides additional stability. HHA also offers optional attachments sold separately. You can find their specifically compatible light and a 4x magnifying clear lens to outfit your sight with.
Optimizer Lite Review Conclusion
Most importantly, of course, is the overall accuracy of the sight. In target shooting, and most definitely in hunting, it is critical to have accurate and reliable gear. It contributes to the enjoyment of the sport and in making a clean, ethical kill. This is truly where the OL-5519 shines.
Many HHA Optimizer Lite reviewers report huge improvements in their groups and significant increases in their personal shooting distance threshold. Archers who normally feel comfortable shooting at 40 yards find themselves giving 60 yards and 70 yards a try and being highly successful.
The accurate yardage tapes, high quality build, and lack of vibration makes this an impressively consistent and dependable sight for both hunting and target shooting. HHA backs their USA made product with a 100% lifetime warranty. Should it fail, you can mail it in and they will have it repaired or replaced within 48 hours of receiving the damaged product.
