I’ve shot a Chocolate Addiction and Boss X before. Both would close caliper when release was cocked. Picked up a Insatiable from a friend. When I cock the release, I either have to have the caliper closed first or manually close it once it’s cocked. Is this correct? I didn’t care for the release so I’m going to sell it for him. Don’t want to list it if it’s not functioning properly.
Thanks for any help
If you are wanting it fixed if it needs repaired send it to Carter Ent. and care of Forrest Carter with all your information. Or http://www.carterenterprises.com/ kick on this to ask them yourself about that release. They are excellent folks to work with.
Yes, that is normal function for the Insatiable-series. It becomes second nature to flick the wrist to get the jaw wide open, push the lever to set the sear, put the release on the loop, push the jaw to lock onto the loop…. then keep your thumb away from the trigger when drawing the bow
Thanks for the recommendation. This was my third attempt at a thumb release. After 30yrs using index/wrist strap type, punching myself in the face a couple of times, and sending a arrow through the woods-I’ll be sticking with my Little Goose……at least until I get bored again during the off season next year and forget how terrible I am with one
If you are inadvertently triggering the release in the draw cycle, consider adjusting the position of the barrel of the trigger.
It should be set deep into the junction of your thumb and your palm, not set way out so the last joint of your thumb is on the trigger.
Having it set in helps with activating it using a pulling motion with your back instead of consciously punching it with your thumb. Having it set in deep that way also helps keep the trigger away from your thumb in the draw cycle.
Search the forum for posts by GJarcher — you will find a good picture of one of his releases set up this way.
