Is there anything particular you want from the new release? I ask because I wanted a thumb release to fix some target panic. After a lot of reading, went to a tension release instead.

Really wanting something to help with target panic but also wanting to have one all around release for hunting is the reason I was looking at the carter wise choice

I went from wrist strap to thumb release just for ease of use. Shot great with a thumb release for a number of years. Then randomly about 2 years ago I developed target panic and spent about 6 months trying to correct it and couldnít do it no matter what I did. Went to a back tension and and it all vanished and I donít see it ever happening again. For hunting itís not the greatest but with practice itís not an issue, the release to me is so much smoother than anything else.

On a side note: I still get major buck fever while bow hunting haha

Stan Perfex, long has a catch so itíll stay on the D loop. You can go thumb button or back tension

After buying and trading several I landed on the Shootoff and haven never looked back. Fit and feel is key, once you find it itís game on.

I had the exact same issue as you. I went to the Nock On Silverback (tension release). The reason being, I can use it as a tension release (to rid myself of the target panic) while practicing. When I go hunting, I swap out the heavy spring for a much lighter spring. That way, when I let off the safety, the bow fires. And I have no idea when it's going to fire.

The heavy and lighter springs come with it thankfully, as it's an expensive release. But I have not developed target panic since I switched.

Obviously, it worked for me, so it must work for anyone, right?! I hope this helps you decide, all the thumb releases suggested are great though, you really can't go wrong.

For me the Carter Plain 1 is the first thumb release I've used and it made me better. I had several others but just couldn't make them work. This one does though.

If you have TP and haven’t addressed it with a tension release, u may want to start there before the thumb trigger. If you are “ready” for the thumb release, the Carter wise choice and Nock2it, are excellent picks!
