    Handheld releases for hunting

    What are you guys shooting for a handhelds. I only hunt so back tensions wouldn't be practical. I tried a Tru ball max pro 4 but wasn't happy with the trigger adjustment. When I had the tension set nice it was to hot and would go off when drawing. I was checking the carter website and there are so many options I need a short list. I plan on shooting palm out. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Handheld releases for hunting

    Those Carter's look nice. I wish I could try a few without buying. Most of the ones I see don't have a swivel head. What hand position are u guys using?

    Handheld releases for hunting

    Perpendicular to my jaw angled slightly up (pinky knuckle higher than core finger knuckle). I anchor by putting the valley between my first two knuckles in the corner of my jaw bone. If that makes sense?

    Lots of guys at the range I go to turn their hand completely around so the back of their hand is against their cheek with their thumb pointing straight down to the ground...??? Need a 3/4" or larger loop though or you will torque your string.

    Shoot whatever is most comfortable with YOU,,as far as anchoring, palm in or out, as long as you can consistently replicate the shot. I think most pro shops will let you try out releases before you purchase them also.

    I won't be able to try any of them out as nobody stocks much of anything other than straps and the odd hand held up here. Thanks for the info boys keep it coming

    Stan Shootoff and Carter chocolate lite.

    I like the ergonomics of the stan releases better than the Chocolate lite. It feels more natural in my hand. But, I know Carter makes some swept releases, I'm thinking maybe the Target 3 or 4...

    Yep. They have some "big" to them and are awesome releases. Not having to $$$$ them and then close the hook is a nice feature.

    Like bling said, 3 finger is the bomb. The pinky can break your shot way to easy, even after getting used to it.

    For any hand held release, if you can get used to the idea, use a catfish or continous loop type dloop. I dont and while Im fairly consistant shooting even with the added torque, I believe that some of my shots could be better without the extra torque.

    I've always liked the feeling of 4 finger releases.....all else fails you can drop the pinky off or modify it yourself with a dremel!
