Default Looking for a thumb release

I'm looking for a thumb release with a similar handle to my TRU Ball HT. I can't shoot the HT in the wind to save my life so would like to get a thumb release for those windy days. Carter or TRU Ball would be preferable.

Thanks,

ZA

Default Carter

Carter target 3 or four fits most folks pretty well.

Got a slightly used "Chocolate Obsession" with all the springs, loop, directions, etc that I paid $180 for and would let go for $150. Three finger.

Tried quite a few, settled on the Carter Choc Lite 3 finger...for 3d and hunting. Lots to choose from though, if possible, go to an ASA tourney or a good local pro shop and try as many as you can.

Tried both, and they were nice, just liked the chocolate addiction more. Fit into my hand better, and more adjustable in terms of trigger tension.

I got one about 2 weeks ago. (st360). I really like it, plus I got it adjusted just like I want it. I've been waiting 15 years for a release like this one. Now, to get the monster. Save up for that will be at least a couple of months. One thing for sure, it definitely makes you shoot better or at least it does for me.

Thanks guys, the two that I'm really stuck between are the Choc-Lite and the ST360X. Decisions, decisions! Wish i could actually shoot both next to each other but no shops nearby stock either of them.

For those who have shot the HT, ST360X, Choc-Lite and the Chocolate Addiction, which of the thumb releases have the closest grip to the HT?
