    How many of you can say that you have a TRUE surprise release.

    Does the shot surprise you when it occurs?

    I don’t think there is any middle ground…it’s a timed release or a surprise release.

    Currently I have a problem mastering it. Its hard breaking old habits. I’ve been a timed release since I started archery.

    I think he’s talking about shooting with back tension as opposed to squeezing the trigger on the release like a rifle, but I could be mistaken. ??????

    No. What I mean is your techinque as you squeeze or punch the trigger on your release aid. [=}=]

    Kinda but….

    My question is does the shot suprise you when it occurs?

    If you use only back tension or squeeze the trigger doesn’t really matter. Is the release of the arrow is a suprise regardless of the exact technique you use? [=}=]

    I use a Scott trigger right now, I wrap my middle knuckle over it and do the push pull. I dont punch I think since my trigger finger doesnt move, but man can I wreck a good score. :whistle

    I will have to say yes. I shoot strickly BT I just keep concetrating until the shot goes off. Sometimes it is quick other times not. The hardest thing about shooting BT is knowing when you have been holding the shot to long and shutting down and starting all over again. 8D

    I know its not the best but I shoot my release with the tipof my ring finger…I know when it goes off, I have tried backtension and really liked how they felt, but for 3d and hunting I prefer having full control [=}=]

    The releases I use are in my signature. Neither one has any trigger travel, so you don’t know when they are “about” to go off…the main cause of punching, IMHO. I aim, keep applying tension, and POW!…its gone. Scares the #%$@ out of me sometimes…those are my best shots. :D
