    Default Hunting release

    What are you using for a hunting release? I have an old tru fire realtree release and noticed alot of rust inside the jaws from sitting so long.It's not a bad release but just wanted to see what was being used

    Scott Lil bitty goose, but I keep a Tru Ball Short N Sweet in my pack as a backup. I've had the Scott since about 95 and just replaced the strap last summer. I've got all the anodizing wore off the inside of the jaw but it just keeps right on working.

    I like the Tru Ball, but it just dosen't quite have the same feel as the Scott. Not quite as smooth on the release, almost feels like the hook wants to hang up slightly as the loop slips past it.

    I been using a Carter Quickie 1 for 2+ years and love it. Very clean release and consistent shot after shot and so far very reliable.

    I've been using a Cascade model 8 for about 10 years now. It's more precision and very crisp. Being a rope release it's what most would consider a target style, but having used this style (rope) for about 35 years it's become second nature to hook up and I don't have to deal with a string loop wearing out or turning on the string. Fact is I've never had to replace the rope yet and string serving doesn't wear out either.

    I have two of these along with a model 10. Then there's two older back tension Stanisloski releases and I just picked up and am playing with a True Ball Sweet Spot Ultra 3, which I don't think is going to last long.
