    Default Thumb release

    Whats the best bang for the buck thumb release?

    A used Carter or TruBall.Theyre made so well and theyre expensive ,most people who buy them take good care of them . Stay away from the Truballs that dont have the silverish ****ing lever on the back.

    I own 8 or 9 currently . Bought them all used, looking for " the one" in terms of" fit " . I havenyt bought a bad one yet, but have releases that I like more then others. I like the open hook heads the most.

    New High end thumb activators depretiate about 40% instantly and if well kept hold 50-60% of theyre value indefinetly. Much like a Spot Hogg "Hogg It" Pin sight.

    Is there anyone near you that you could try one, say a friend or dealer?
    The fit and feel of the release in your hand can be very personal, even more so than bows. At the least, trying a few to see how they feel and fit in your hand could give you an idea for shopping for used ones.

    I ve used and like Carter's Just-B-Cause

    right now I'm using a Stan Shoot-off. I love the adjustment of this release without changing a spring. It fit good in the hand too.

    The best bang for my buck is the best product available....reason being most of the good thumb triggers are gonna cost a pretty penny anyway. Carters are all in the $180 range. Stans are $200...TRU Balls are $165-200 for the top end they make a Max line now that is much cheaper but they don't hold a candle to the others and for me aren't worth my money. The Hot Shots are $175 the Hoggs are $120.

    For me I want quality and what fits my needs and what I like.....that is what gives me the best bang for my buck/ When you buy that $80 release that you aren't happy with or that isn't any good and you have to spend another $150 on something else.....your buck just got bent over and banged.
