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

    Default shot a thumb release last night for the first time.

    Didn't go so well at first. First shot the release went with the arrow literally downrange......scarey.... Very humbling. After a few shots I was smokin X's. Needless to say I bought a Truball pro diamond last night.

    Welcome to the club! What style head did you get on it?

    I love mine and the support you will get from TRU is awesome!

    the first shot I took with mine hit the carpet about 10 feet in front me.... the second shot hit the wall to the right of the target and put a nice hole in the drywall... then I realized I should set it up with the trigger so that it was on the correct side for a lefty

    I have a TruBall Sabertooth that I don't shoot anymore. It is hard to pull through sometimes. I bought a Carter insatiable it has a c o c k ing mechanism and seems to go off alot smoother. But I still cant get rid of the TB even though it is a little harder to use it is still a great back up

    I have been trying a thumb trigger for the last year. I recently gave up and went back to wrist strap. Scores went back up.
    I think it's because I pull through better with the wrist strap.

    maybe you need to get one from Dredly, holding his in your hand might work and feel better for you then holding your own?? It worked for Bowman, but then again it seems him and Dredly have something special going on
