    Default Winn free flight release

    the velcro is letting loose and last night i didn't catch it at about 2/3 draw the release released itself from my hand and clobbered my arm and rest(which i did not figure out till later). the next arrow flew high and ended up in a steel door still trying to figure out what happened after retrieving the arrow out of the door(the tips are slightly larger than the arrow now inspecting my bow and noticed the rest was bent all out of shape, with no idea what had happened. thought something happened while i was gone, but later realized the release hit it that hard.

    So does anyone know of a buckle strap to work with the winn? never liked velcro, but very fond of the release. the second one i have owned been shooting one for probably 15 years

    I have a velcro strap on my release, and I hate it. I plan to see if my mother, who does a lot of sewing, would be able to sew the release to a buckle strap. I was thinking about going to the pet store and getting a dog collar (nylon) that would fit around my wrist, and then cutting the velcro release and sewing the release to the dog collar. I just have to see if her machine could handle that type of material. If I get it finished, I'll post some photos.

    Cant add anything to the question but just that I have the same release myself, dont like the velcro and dont like the way the release head is in the way for opening gates, grabbing things etc, but just the same I wouldnt change from it as because I am a finger shooter, barebow, with my target bow it is the closest release to fingers I've seen.

    Sonny,
    overlaps to act like a buckle? i trimmed about an inch or more of extra strap last tear cuz the velcro kept grabbing my jacket and stuff. is it designed to be too long?
