    How heavy of a trigger do you all prefer? Personally I like a heavy trigger. I've got the heaviest spring installed in the Sensation, trigger break is 6 pounds. :p

    I believe light triggers lead to TP

    heavy triggers for me...

    Ditto, I believe the combination of a hair trigger and the lack of valley on a previous bow caused some tp issues for me. My version of tp was as soon as I put my thumb on the trigger off went the shot.

    I'm using a Carter Quickie 1 Plus, using the heaviest spring I could get in there and love it.

    I run a heavy trigger so that I can pre load it a little before the shot and proceed with the back tension portion of the shot. Works for me any way.
