    I do most of my practicing shooting back tension with a Scott Longhorn. When it comes to 3D or hunting I shoot a Carter Insatiable. I still trigger it using mostly back tension but there are times I need to control the shot to time it with the wind.

    I use a TRU ultra 3 for target, but i do not reccomend backtension for hunting. First someback tensions can be loud. Second, adrenaline can set off your release early. great for target not so much hunting

    I practice with a back tension release to warm up. But currently using a wrist strap for 3D and hunting.

    You can shoot any release you mentioned as a back pressure release and get the extra accuracy you desire ;) :thumbup :thumbup

    I shoot the Carter Hammer!!! Love the release. For bigger hands. i have the heavest spring in it and i use it as a BT style. I have tried BT and have trouble holding in the middle for longer than 2 seconds. When I get the pin where I want it I want the damn release to go off. So in the words of Tim gillingham “I drop the Hammer on it”

    :agree The Short-N-Sweet is a great release, but it has a very light trigger.

    When shooting with gloves on, a light trigger can work against you .. it caused me to miss a nice bull elk at 20 yds. I got too much finger on the trigger without realizing it because of the glove. Release went off early, punched a hole through the brisket as I was coming up onto the vitals. ](*,)

    Nice release … but I gave it away to Tn10point.

    Back Tension for me on the 3d course. It has greatly changed the way I shoot my bow, and I am forever indebted to the Tru-Ball BT Gold Ultra 4.

    I tried a TRU Ball Assassin at the Bow shop and had to have one, It helped me with my anchor point and has a smooth trigger. My groupings are tighter than ever..

    Tru Ball Absolute 4 finger. Set the trigger spring a little higher, and works great as a pull thru release.

    I just switched releases to a scott little goose. I am glad I did. It really tightened up my groups. I am still toying around with a few things but I hope to be squares away before the 3-d starts in my area.

    Thumb triggers last three years. I started w/ Truball ball pro diamonds and now worked my way up to the Hotshot tempest . Got a couple of buddies to try the switch, one didn’t like the thumb the other now owns my Carter chocolate lite.
