Default what types do you prefer?

Looking at getting a new release, but obviously being a new shooter i have no idea except what i have read, and what store employees tell me. figured i would get a wide range of experience here. so what type do you feel is best for a beginner??

Tru Fire Judge
Truball Sniper
Tuball Pro Diamond


My favorite right now is the Sniper, for a wrist strap...

and dont let people tell you there is a difference in "tournament vs hunting releases", if you practice you can use almost any release for both.....

Hard to beat a good Scott Mongoose release.

I use a Carter Target four release for tournament and hunting. MOst perfer a wrist strap for hunting.


Hope this helps. Good Luck, Mongoose has been around for many manay years for good reason.

any one that you can pull without a tendency to put your finger on the trigger. I only shoot wrist straps for this reason. I have seen first hand what happens when someone pulls the trigger at 1\2 draw. what ever you get you just need to practice to get acquainted with that trigger. I usually buy the second or third cheapest but that's just because I think most bows are more accurate than the person shooting it and no amount of money spent will fix that.

The Tru Balls are nice. Hear they work really well. A lot of guys like thumb release and say they switched from wrist to thumb and will never go back. I recommend trying them out and seeing which ones have the best feel for you.

I have been shooting both my Tru-Ball Chappy Boss and Tru-Ball Pro-Diamond. I just love thumb releases nowadays.

Thumbs up Release aids

For hunting or any shooting you want one with No trigger travel thats adjustable with a nice wrist strap. My choice is a Fletcher Flathead. The best trigger available for under $100.00 Retail around $65.00
Calaper release aids will work fine, but a one tooth design is more acurate in the long run.
The Fletcher Flathead.

I think that anything truball or scott would do just fine.

seems like there are a lot of opinions here. Bottom line is whatever works for you. I would recommend a wrist strap on which ever one you get and preferably a buckle, not velcro. I had velcro once and it broke mid draw, switched to a buckle after that. And make sure you can draw back while keping your finger behind the trigger.

Shoot straight!

Default releases

I use a simular release as seen in D. Boon's photo. The release can be attached to the bow when hanging on a hook in the stand, ready to pick up and shoot. Don't have to fumble around hooking up like the other types when you should be looking at the deer. Just what has worked for me.
