I have been using a plain ol' trigger release with a wrist strap for years and this year I would really love to get a new one. Maybe a pure backtension one to help cure the slight induced target panic the trigger releases can cause. I am in no way set on this so i am open for suggestions. I am just wanting to improve my accuracy!!

I got a Carter Quickie last year and I really like it. It is a wrist release so it might not be what your looking for. I like the hook alot better on it than the caliper releases, alot easier to hook to a loop when in the stand, also easy to adjust, just make sure you adjust it a small amount at a time or you'll end up with a busted lip like I did. :-D I haven't used any backtensions so I ain't no help there.

I am in the same boat you are Matt but I dont think I want a BT release.
I may try a thumb actuated or just got with a different realease than my Tru-Fire, I am not really getting along with it.

I was going to recommend the Carter Ember... Somebody should jump on that.

I shoot an Ember2 and love it. I just got into non-wrist releases a short time ago, and the Ember was very natural and easy for me to learn to shoot BT with. It's very adjustable, and for that reason is the perfect release for a new hand held release shooter to figure out what they are most comfortable with. It's dead quiet (unlike some releases I have shot that sound like a bomb going off in your ear), it automatically resets, and I find the thumb shoe far more natural than any of the designs with a knurled knob trigger... I found I tend to want to punch the releases that have a knob, and I'm not at all tempted to punch the Ember with the thumb shoe tucked into the fleshy part of my hand below my thumb.

I highly recommend this release... it's going to be tough to want to go back to a wrist release for hunting in the fall.
