    so the other day i was getting the Prestige set back up for 3D........

    so i was taking some settling in shots w/my truball, and man i gotta tell you....

    after shooting the Evo the last 3-4 weeks........

    Man that Tru ball is hard to get to go off.....

    First couple of times I really had all i could do to get it to go off.......

    I may work on shooting the truball for 3d and the Evo for spots......

    I am really geeting the idea of back tention, easier than I thought I would:noidea:

    I have been shooting the evo for a while and I think it is great for a training tool, but I just can't shoot it well enough to shoot spots with it. Going back to the Insatiable is an easy transition for me....

    so you've switched to tension now? I've heard a lot of people say they have issues with standard releases once they go to tension... I've never played with it though so :noidea:

    I havent "SWITCHED", I am not confident enough in it to hunt........

    I will most likely still use the Tru-ball to hunt with, and for now I will use it on the Prestige......

    I haven't had that problem as of yet....getting the evo to go off is much harder for me. I have the trigger on my thumb release set much lighter, therefore it goes off quicker and I don't have to aim as long. since the evo is harder for me to make go off (because of where I have set the spring), it is teaching me to aim longer. Don't get me wrong, I still stink but I am beginning to stink a little less....I think

    How long are you guys holding? I think the arrow should be gone in 4 to 6 seconds.

    I'm not shooting the Evo but the Revo...lution.

    I found that once I am on target, and safety is removed, it's 4-4.5 seconds for me. This gives me the best groups.

    I have a tru-ball gold back tension coming in the mail any day and am nervous about getting started with it. I have a friend who is very knowledgeable about BT and knows his stuff who is going to help me out. I wish I had someone give me some lessons when I first started shooting so I wouldn't have so many bad habits to get rid of.
