Default Thumb release help

I have a Carter chocolate lite. While shooting yesterday my hands were sweating and the release is smooth metal. At one point I thought it was going to slip out of my hand. I thought about buying some sports tape or something to help grip. Anyone else have this problem?

I have a truball T-rex and it has a few groove lines that I initially disliked then I got sweaty.

if possible, get some lines etched.

I haven’t had a problem in a while but I have before. I shoot that same release. I have put a wrap of athletic tape around a few spots before and it helped. I also have been shooting a thumb release recently with the finger hole. Easier to hang on to.

I haven’t had an issue yet, but I’ve had Times early season where I was a little worried about it.

Ive shot it for 3 yrs now and this is the first time I've had this problem. I'll try some tape and see if that helps

3m grip tape does wonders. Made my wise choice a lot easier to hold onto.
