    Default Which carter release???

    I currently shoot the 2 shot, but would like an open hook style instead. I'm torn between the rx1, and the Lucky. I have no place to try these release out so I'm going to be taking my chances. Any recommendations?

    If it were me, I'd choose the Lucky. The magnetic spring adjustment is pretty slick.

    I wish I could shoot them both before I buy. I've never been in a shop in MI and saw carter wrist releases on the shelf. I think they are the best releases made.

    I currently own both.

    The RX1 is single sear and uses both a magnet and a spring. It has a bit of trigger travel but not bad.

    The Lucky is a dual sear and is all magnetic. It has virtually no detectable trigger travel. The Lucky's hook to trigger distance is also about 1/4" longer than the RX1.

    They are both good releases but I (for my style) would like to see more weight for the trigger pull (4 to 5 lbs). I get a reading of about 2.6 lbs on the Lucky and the Rx1 is pretty close with a modified spring. I would also like to see more hook to trigger distance. One drawback with magnets is that they will pick up tiny magnetic particles and need to be cleaned periodically. I'm not sure where those particles come from but they are a real pain to remove.

    Another release I use is the single sear Loesch Jackrabbit. It's very similar to both of the above but with out the magnets. It can get higher trigger pull rates but after 3 lbs the hook can be a little tough to set.

    Carter " just like Mike" release is as good as it gets as far as wristers go! you can adjust it to fit you and your shooting style!
