    Default what types do you prefer?

    Looking at getting a new release, but obviously being a new shooter i have no idea except what i have read, and what store employees tell me. figured i would get a wide range of experience here. so what type do you feel is best for a beginner??

    Tru Fire Judge
    Truball Sniper
    Tuball Pro Diamond


    My favorite right now is the Sniper, for a wrist strap...

    and dont let people tell you there is a difference in "tournament vs hunting releases", if you practice you can use almost any release for both.....

    Default Hunting Release...

    my recommendation is a buckle strap Carter...will be hard to beat for quality and function.

    any one that you can pull without a tendency to put your finger on the trigger. I only shoot wrist straps for this reason. I have seen first hand what happens when someone pulls the trigger at 1\2 draw. what ever you get you just need to practice to get acquainted with that trigger. I usually buy the second or third cheapest but that's just because I think most bows are more accurate than the person shooting it and no amount of money spent will fix that.

    The Tru Balls are nice. Hear they work really well. A lot of guys like thumb release and say they switched from wrist to thumb and will never go back. I recommend trying them out and seeing which ones have the best feel for you.

    I have been shooting both my Tru-Ball Chappy Boss and Tru-Ball Pro-Diamond. I just love thumb releases nowadays.

    Thumbs up Release aids

    For hunting or any shooting you want one with No trigger travel thats adjustable with a nice wrist strap. My choice is a Fletcher Flathead. The best trigger available for under $100.00 Retail around $65.00
    Calaper release aids will work fine, but a one tooth design is more acurate in the long run.
    The Fletcher Flathead.

    I think that anything truball or scott would do just fine.
