    Usually a little lighter for the 3D course and line. But hunting, definately middle.

    {#emotions_dlg.mathews_arrow}Got slammed on AT for that same question people telling me that it’s wrong. Not all of them just some I told them that it work’s for me been doing it that way for 30 year’s. I don’t think there’s a cookie cutter’s way of setting up a release, what’s cold to one person might be hot for someone else. The way I look at shoot what work’s for you and have fun, thank’s for the reply’s.

    They probably just slammed you because you shoot a Mathews. It seems to be that way that place runs.

    I shoot a Carter Hole Thing (Hammer Now) and it is set so you breath on it and it’s going off.  Hated it at first, but love it now.  Has the heaviest spring in it, and it just seems to stay that way.

    …Has the heaviest spring in it, and it just seems to stay that way.

    The trigger travel is most likely the reason that the different springs aren’t having a noticeable affect. Back off the trigger travel screw slightly and the trigger tension spring should make a difference without inducing any trigger travel/creep.

    I adjust my releases (Insatiable 2/Plain1 & TruBall Chappy Boss) depending on what I’m using it for. Super light is great for fair-weather target shooting but the last thing I want on a cold morning with heavy camo gloves or when the wind is blowing really bad. I like to ‘get on the trigger’, so I favor heavier springs so that I’m not mentally shy about touching the trigger when setting up for the shot.

    Of course, if you are ‘Tapper’ using an index finger trigger release, the hair trigger is what you’d want …

    The problem with the world is "stupidity" I'm not saying there should be the death penalty for stupidity, but why don't we just remove the safety labels from everything and let the problem sort itself? -unknown
