    That's what I was thinking, too, Scott, but I figured the guys would already know that.

I ended up putting a new loop on and then had to adjust his release after he glanced another arrow off the ceiling.
    x2 Sonny is telling it like it is. I had one let go and well, and the coats took in the back. Ruined some good clothes. I adjusted mine it works well now.

    well, I inreased tension to the maximum amount possible on both releases. The Truball held, the other didn't. Another punch to the chin. I'm all squinty eyed and leary of shooting. I hate it! The loop is slipping between the jaws on the one release.

    soooo.. i just used the faulty release on the Athens w no problem,other than a fear of beating myself up again. i decided to try it when i was looking for something and noticed the loop on the Athens held its shape better. upon further inspection,that loop is made of thicker,stiffer material. so what material could it be? it was on there when i got the bow. the strings are Twisted Archer customs. not sure if theloop came from them or not.

    Time to get the one release fixed. Then build a drawing machine.

    Still it is not the d loop. Twisted archer uses BCY material. No matter what release brand. The jaws have to come together and hold under pressure. If they don't it is faulty. Or needs to be adjusted. I have had many here from Scott to tru-ball to true-fire. Doesn't matter they all grabbed the d loop well. If yours isn't grabbing it is the release.

    hawg, we should start shooting fingers again like the good ole days!no more worrying about walking up on deer with out the release on, no more forgetting the release at home. no more clanking against the treestand, and best of all no more punching ourselves in the face.

    Would be nice to go back to finger release but there is no way with my hinting rig, 31" ATA is no good with a 30" draw & finger release.

    fingers not so easy on a 30" ata bow. i never could get the hang of it to where i was consistent. i was using a 40" ata Bear one cam and tried to train myself to switch between a release and fingers in case i lost the release. my groups at 20yds was about 14".lol
