    Do you want a plain backtension or one with a safety?
    Take a look at the Carter releases. The Bighorn and Atension are regular backtension releases and the Solution 2.5, 2.75 and 3 have safetys.

    Newbie Question???

    What is all this talk about back tension thumb. I'm clueless to this. I shot fingers for years growing up using that no glove on the string. I have a Fred Bear Instinct am using a release for the first time that straps on the wrist. :frusty:
    If I need to get a different release let me know. I want good shots. Especially when I get either the Diamond or Guardian, jury is still out on that one. :Cry:

    There is a way to get back tension in which ever release you use.
    I have used that wrist strap type since 84 I tried ta use tha thumb ones which became popular during tha mid 90s and found it was a new learning process so since I have a system with tha wrist I stayed with ol fathful and avoided having ta learn a new one. only me.. so if yore just gettin' started you chose.
    But yore still gonna need ta master one or both of them.
