    Whats better, I wrist strap release or a hand held release?

    One for hunting vs. one for 3-d??

    Im curious, Ive only ever shot wrist strap style releases.

    I use the same Scott 3D release (wrist wrap) for hunting and 3D.

    To me a strap is easier to draw bow with obviously. But I like the feel of my handhelds. I think its more of a personaly opinion.:biggrin1:

    I use a Scotts wrist release for hunting and a Stan thumb trigger (hand release) for 3D.

    the most accurate release you can get is the one you hit what your aiming at consistantly... Everyone has a preference but what works for one doesn't work for all...:amen:

    I second that!

    I use a wrist release for hunting because once it is on, it is one less thing I need to think about. Even though I prefer to shoot with a handheld release, the last thing I would want to do is drop it from the tree stand, plus those things get cold in the winter time! :D

    Go with what gives you the most consistent shot… I have seen plenty of guys use wrist strap releases and do VERY well in competition!

    i used handheld releases for a long time, but i quit using them for one reason i dropped one while out hunting and couldnt find it, now that really sucked. thats the one disadvantage for a handheld that i can think of.
