    Question how many lbs. of pull should a thumb trigger be set at?

    hey, curious how what most spot and 3d shooters set their releases at? I have a Carter chocolater addiction and right now I have the lightest springs in it cranked all the way down and backed off 1/4 turn.

    I like a a pretty heavy pull on my thumb trigger so I can really get my hand buried into the release and my thumb firmly against the nurled trigger and pull through just like a hinge release. practice with different settings and see what works for you. good luck
