    That is not a question anyone else can answer for you. There are so many different styles of releases that you will need to decide what you are going to use it for and then go from there. Hunting I like my Tru-Fire X-Caliper or Tru-Ball Pro-Diamond. For 3D and Indoor Spots I like my Tru-Ball Chappy Boss and Tru-Ball Ultra 3's. Its all about comfort and whether you want trigger,Back Tension, or Thumb release. Personal preference comes into play alot. Try as many different as you can and then decide whats best for you. Good Luck.

    I am qualified, based on the fact that I'm experienced and objective , to say that I agree with Hoosier hands down.

    What kind of shooting do you do ? Indoor, 3D, hunting, all of the above ? Do you have 1 bow for all of that or multiple bows ?

    I have 3 different releases. They are all for different purposes.

    Also, you need to try as many out as you can since they are all distinctly different in many ways. Check out www.lancasterarchery.com. They have a pretty nice selection of releases with a TON of different characteristics. And you can actually call them and talk to a real person who actually shoots, that knows the products they sell and will give you genuine advice.

    But in the end it's up to your personal preferences, so you need to try as many as you can.

    Just because I wear New Balance shoes because they fit me so well does not mean that they will fit you. I'm 6'-1" - 230 pounds with a size 8 foot. That's not a 'normal' shoe size for my size and height. That's a perfect example of why you go to the shoe store and try on different shoes to see which one fits best and feels best to you.

    The same goes for bows, releases, etc...

    Ummm....

    I'll say it AGAIN.

    TRY AS MANY AS YOU CAN AND PICK THE ONE THAT BEST SUITS YOUR SHOOTING TYPE AND FEEL...

    well.... these guys have some awesome release ideas lancaster archery is great for them, sometimes beating the prices of local dealers. i would suggest going to a local proshop and trying any of them first and see what you like. i shoot a carter insatiable thumb release you can spend 30 to 200 on one...
