Carter Evolution Plus!
Well, we got our first batch of Evolution Plus releases in. In case you live under a rock, this back tension release is making big or should I say HUGE waves.
This is a back tension that requires NO rotation to fire unlike a hinge style. Only an increase in pressure can cause it to fire. It is triggered based on the holding weight of your bow. And yes, it has a safety so you can get drawn without busting yourself in the chops.
When you get to full draw and release the safety, it doesn't fire. Then as you pull into the wall, the holding weight increases to the breaking point and the release fires. It will startle you for sure.
Oh, and what's the new 'plus' version. It has customizable springs. No longer do you have to send it back to Carter if the spring weight range does not work for your bow. Just change it yourself.
Well, I spent an hour shooting it the other day. If you want to find out if your honest and shooting properly pick this one up.
This release is a serious education. It takes some time to get the holding weight set right but it's not bad. I don't have mine set on the hairy edge because it would occasionally go off on my when I released the safety. This is not a flaw. It just means I was harder into the wall when I released the safety.
After shooting a while, I was amazed at how many shots absolutely pounded the middle of the X. I'm not saying I didn't have some flyers while learning. Heck I shot one 2 feet into the next bale on one shot while learning this thing
I need to spend some time shooting this but I do plan to use if for our indoor 300 league. It's risky but I think it is worth the learning process.

Since your mad at your money, you can buy 2.
They're $155 but don't hold me to that. They may go up slightly for the new version.

Hey Chris are this similar to the old Stanalosiki's? Pure back tension release?
I never have tried to master these type releases but when you do man are you ever string splitter time after time . Wathced a local NFAA Pro shot 60 x's, he is close to 67 and still doing mid 50's. HS

I have one of the "old" Evolutions. You know the ones they used to make way back when.
Anyways, it is an outstanding release. If you can not get a "surprise" release with any other release, you will with this one.Pathfinder Arrow Wraps

I really like this release, but it isn't an easy fix to your form problems. It should definately solve a persons punching problem. In doing that for me, it has brought to my attention another form flaw that I didn't know existed. You will have to learn to draw into your back wall the same every time. You may think you are now, but wait until you get the Evolution.
I can set the break weight on my Evolution to a certain poundage and have 1 of 3 things happen.
1. I can draw and anchor perfectly and then push to a flawless shot (I hear angels sing when this happens....),
2. I can draw and anchor harder into my back wall. When I release the safety, the bow fires. These shots usually score well because I can hold steady at the beginning of my sequence and I release the safety slowly.
3. I can draw and anchor weak into the wall. When I do this, I generally turn red while trying to set the thing off. I usually shift my focus to breathing so that I dont pass out. I pull and pull until I get shaky and either let down like I should, or show my stubborn macho side and keep pulling even though the "X" looks like a moth flying around a light bulb and I shoot a 4 if i'm lucky.
It is a great release, but like all others, you may have to do the dreaded "blind bale" torture to get a great feel for it.Pathfinder Arrow Wraps

Been looking at pure back tension releases. HHA makes a release that's got a very visible spring - the heart of the unit. I looked at the Carter you posted and wonder - looks to me that it releases with the torque of the hand.
The Carter looks pretty neat and at 155 beats (in price) the HHA @ $240.
Still lookin' hard at the HHA - but $240?
Can you, or would you, make a comparison for me?

With it set harder, it forces you to shoot the right way. The constant pull. When it breaks just right its awesome. You instantly know what the perfect shot feels like and they hammer the X.
