    TruBall Xtreme. I had decided to try a T handle thumb trigger release after years of using a wrist strap, index finger trigger (Scott Shark) release. Please understand, my problem was not with the Scott release. It’s a well made piece of equipment. My problem was with my “twitchy” index finger! I first tried a TruFire Camo Hunter to see how it would go. It went fine, but the TruFire’s machining and trigger were not quite as fine as the TruBall.
    It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.

    Carter Chocolate Addiction went to it 3yrs ago and won’t switch ANYtime soon. I was worried about the click sound but not a single animal has been able to get away from the sound ;)

    I have had a Scott Lil Goose for 14 years or so and haven’t done a thing to it since new(hunting, 3d tournaments, practice, etc.). My back up is a Scott Mongoose that is 15-16 years old. I was shooting a Tru-ball at the shop the other day that was nice though, don’t know the model.

    Carter BK Target for 3D/spots and a Scott Rhino XT Buckle for hunting. The quality of both has been outstanding! :thumbup

    I have debated about trying a T handle style release, but was always afraid of dropping the darn thing when I need it! Do you leave it attached to your loop once you are in position or lash it in some way to your wrist??? Also, by “clicking”, is that from the thumb trigger??? But, I guess it doesn’t really matter if it lays ‘em down, that’s what it’s all about! ;)

    Believe me, I understand the “twitchy” trigger finger thing! It’s all about being comfortable with what you use, not only the release, but the whole set up!

    I had been trying out a couple of Tru-balls the other day, but wasn’t totally sold. So, here I am still looking. I appreciate your thoughts and input! :thumbup

    Many years ago I used the Jim Fletcher like L.O.S.T mentioned… still have two of them!

    Switched to a Scott little goose for hunting… loved it! But I always had the itch to try a thumb style release for 3D and spots.

    Ended up with a Carter Just B Cuz…. now it gets used for Hunting, as well as 3D and spots.

    Good Luck in your search :thumbup

    Used to live in Noblesville right by Morse Reservoir, and my dad was a mechanic at Indianapolis Boat Co for several years which used to sit right at the junction of I-69 and 116th. I’m familiar with both areas very well. :thumbup
