    Tru-Ball has a couple back tension releases under $75. I have the bt gold ultra 3. I also have a stans and carter, really can't tell much difference in any of them.

    i would reccomend that if you are just getting started out on a back tension release then at least give the tru ball sweet spott 2 release a serious look. it has a safety on it that will give you a little confidence when you go to full draw

    Do you want a hinge or a holding weight back tension. The holding weight versions are more money. There are many styles of backtension including hook or spike, hinge and holding weight. (priced lowest to highest)

    I've shot and tried just about EVERY hinge on the market with the exception of a few of the ones that have come out this year. There are a TON of good/great releases out there....and for ever person that likes a release there is someone that doesn't like it. Like the TRU Balls with a safety...lots of people LOVE them I can't stand them. But I do like the regular TRU Ball hinges...I shot a TRU Tension for a long time.

    I am a Scott fan myself.....but that is after a very long search for a release over the past 2 years. When I say I am a Scott fan I don't mean of all their releases....just the one that I am shooting. The key to finding the correct hinge for you is to get as many of them in your hands as you can. When you find the right one you won't even need to shoot it.

    Default Carter

    Carter got a new BT release.

    Keep it simple. They sold out of these at the show. Buddy has one on order.

    Slider

    The Slider is a New Spike head style triggerless release. It features a new incremental adjustment system that allows you to set your release at just the right speed.

    The Slider has an extremely comfortable 3 finger handle and head angle allows you to draw safely using the pulling post but requires virtually no hand repositioning upon anchoring. Just aim, pull slightly into the fixed spike and the loop slides easily from the spike, leaving you with a very clean release. Experience the new slider today and see just how slick it really is.
