Okay guys. I’m having trouble deciding on a release for target archery. The bow is a C4. Which do you prefer?Would like to add that I don’t much care for price, appearance, or any of that stuff. Purely into the performance. NO STRAP RELEASES
Joined: 8/25/2006What kind of a release are you wanting to use?No strap releases.
Joined: 8/25/2006I would suggest getting a coach to start you out.
I started with a Carter chocolate addiction, then graduated to a Carter colby2 hinge. Now I am shooting a Zenith hinge. There are tons of different releases, based on your hand size, style of shooting, etc…
A coach makes the process go much quickerThanks for that advice aoudad.
Location: OhioI shoot a carter chocolate addiction, and haven’t seen or had a reason to switchAll We Do Is SELFILMED
Joined: 11/16/2004I think Cartet makes the best releases… they are just such good quality!
I do have 5 Carters, 2 Truballs & 1 Stan
Joined: 8/29/2005I voted Carter. They make some of the best releases on the market!
Wonder what Forrest would recommend?
Joined: 6/10/2006I voted Carter as well. Currently I own two Atensions (1 hinge, 1 spike), a Colby II spike, an Evolution Plus, a Just B Cuz and a Quickie 1 Plus!
I’m kinda like a pre-paid college fund for ole Forrest!
Joined: 10/14/2008Carter makes a fantastic release and several handles to choose from. You can’t go wrong with one. Stan’s SuperX is also a great release. Plus it has a bit more adjustability. I don’t think you can go wrong either way. Now, if you want to shoot a hinge release….. Scott Longhorn all the way.

As to the release, I use a 3 finger Zenith Comfort. I have two, one regular metal the other is brass. I use a .006″ clicker in both. I immediately set the clicker when I hit full draw as part of my shot routine.
Joined: 11/29/2008I think Im on a never ending quest to find the perfect release, (arent we all).
I use a Loesch True Back Tension, a Scott Longhorn SS III, a CCPorter Mako 4 and a Stanislawski SuperX.
Joined: 2/15/2008Gotta shoot them all and decide for yourself. Make a list of release you think you would like, go to the shop and shoot.
I was leaning towards the Carter Chocolate Addiction and Chocolate Lite until I shot them.
Then I went home with a T.R.U. Ball Ultra Extreme for a better price and IMO a lot cleaner release.
Joined: 4/24/2008This is a very touchy subject the best style of release is a back tension. from the list you left i voted for the stan. this is because it was the best choice for me after i shot a couple of carters. I also have one of Bernie Pelterllie’s Missing Link. i will say that if I would have not tried that release I would never have bought it. what sold me was that i was at gander mountain and the subject came up with one of the employees and he happened to have one with him. I looked at it and said that it would not work. he let me use his Bowtech (myself being a Mathews fan) that had a draw length 2 inches past my own and on the first shot was able to shoot an inside out X more than once. The back tension is a long process to get perfect and will take at least 6 months to be perfect no matter how much you shoot. the stan was very helpful in that process but it is all up to what is comfortable to you so what ever your choice may be it will get worse before it gets better.
