    Default tried a thumb release....

    and liked it....so now I owe dredly some dough......

    decided at the last minute to shoot my Gander Mountain league score w/it tonight.....

    my GM scores are always lower than My regular scores...the lighting is terrible there.....for what ever reason

    so I average about a 297 30x there.....

    tonight....298 44x...i am stoked....the two fours....I know I punched...the very first round I scored after 15 warm up shots....was 5x's.....couldnt beleive it.....I am holding steadier if that makes any sense.....

    I had to move my peep and still need to play with the trigger more, but I think I am going to like it....
    I cut things up and split them down!

    Do what I did... I just went out and bought one to figure out if i like it or not. Should be getting it in a few days...I figured the worst thing that could happen is I put it in the drawer with the other three releases I don't like.

    Glad to hear you scored are going up. I've shot a thumb release a couple of times but like the BT a little better. Glad to hear Dredly is taking care of you Bowman. You guys are playing so well together lately. I am so very proud of you.

    I tried the Chappy Boss a bit and just could not get used to the thumb trigger. I prefer my hinge style BT release.

    shot another round tonight....I was behind a week....needed to make up....'

    the more i shoot this thing the more i like it.....I have figured out how to just set me thumb there and pull thru till it goes off.....and my X's are drilled inside out.....

    299 41x.....It was 3 x's less oh well.....

    the one 4 came in the 8th end.....last shot....I felt my self getting lazy and falling out the bottem and couldnt let down it was already going off....so I am not that upset.....

    I wish I had done this long ago......it feels really good.....

    He had to have something in his shorts, if it wasn't for the release being there he would be wearing panties full time

    I'm always happy to see you, just not that happy, so don't you go and get too happy.

    I like my Tru Ball Extreme. Verdict is still out on the Evolution. There is no way on earth the TB is getting sold until the Evolution starts working better.

    You didn't kiss the release after shooting those scores did you?
