Default What Release....

With the upcoming season just around the corner and all the talk about FOC and Broadheads and arrows, I was wondering what release you all will be using this year and why.....

Using a Scott Mongoose and love it.

shooting a blackout dual jaw from bass pro, if you do the research you'll see its actually a scott shark just re-branded through bass pro for a cheaper price.

Have a little goose. Wish I got a Scott rhino or similar. The open end makes hooking a string a breeze. That will be next for me.

I shot Scott releases for about 30 years or more I reckon, but after trying the Spot Hogg Wiseguy that has changed.

It's the Wiseguy for me now.

in my opinion the wise guy is one of the best triggers on the market for archery. I went from shooting a true fire to the wise guy 4 or 5 years ago and have never looked back.

I'm using the cheap $20 one from academy and it seems to be great. I tried shooting with no release and missed the entire target. Put an arrow through my shop!

How do you like that blackout thumb, I have the blackout dual jaw and love it. Thinking about getting the thumb for off season practice. Would you recommend it?
