I shoot a Cascade model 8 marketed by Spot Hogg. It's a rope release. I wrap the loop around the string and hook it up, slide the rope right up against the bottom of the nock. I've been using this style of release (rope) for field, target, hunting, and 3D for about 30 years. Been shooting this model 8 for nearly 10 years. One thing I can say. The rope does not wear out the center serving nor does the rope wear out. I've never changed the rope on the release.

I had to edit this. I'm in complete agreement about a 38" bow. I'll be picking next year's bow very carefully, probably a custom build. Maybe an S4 mag with mini-Cat cams. Just a thought.
If I ever change to a string loop I'll most likely give the Saturday Night Special a real workover., but being in the twilight of my shooting career I don't see that happening. I've got three Cascades and three back tension releases. Can't see spending $110 on something I might not like.
