View Full Version : Release aids

Looking for some advice on the various different types & their pros & cons.

The 2 main types I am looking at are the hand trigger style like the Carter Chocolate or Target +

Or would I be better using the wrist strap type such as Scott Caliper Release. I do notice the strap varients all seem to be much longer than the trigger types which could impact my draw length.

Any views on each style & their functionality would be much appreciated.

Your best bet is to check um out at a pro shop. If you are just hunting you cant beat the utility of the strap type releases. I personally shoot a 20 dollar allen release, there "pro" model. My 45 dollar tru ball is my backup release.

try them out and find what suites you

you can get a cobea wrist strap string strap head release for 25 witch you can shorten or lengthen it to your draw length and the string strap makes no tourqe on your string so better shots and consistancy

Used a Bass Pro release that is made by Cobra I believe all summer, worked great. The only thing I didn't like about it was the head of the release is adjustable by a threaded stud with a locking nut that didn't stay where I set it and was always having to readjust it.

Now I'm using a Trufire 360 Extreme, and like it better than any I've tried.

I shoot with a tru-ball rack master pro (these are not made any more) but the sniper scout the cyclone and the short and sweet are all adjustable lengths. check them out.http://www.truball.com/ShortNSweet.html
