Joined: 7/17/2004I started using the Short-N-Sweet last year are reeally like it.
Before that I used a Fletcher deluxe Wrist strap, for like 25 years. Seems like for ever. I was hesitant on changing but now glad I did.
The Short-N-Sweet works great with my 28″ Legacy and a loop.
Shortened things up a little.
I didn’t like the wrist strap with it though. [flimsey]
I replaced it with a Fletcher wrist strap.

Joined: 10/26/2005Quickie II. For the open jaw design but away from my facemask so I don’t have any potential snagging issues. Plus, the quality & trigger can’t be beat.
Joined: 11/16/2004I use a Tru Ball Chappy ….. it fits my hand and the just felt right. I do however think Carter makes better releases.
Joined: 1/10/2006True-Fire Judge…….Love the buckle, and the smooth rotating head…..not to mention the fact that when you depress the trigger, the jaws open…..conversely, when you release the trigger, the jaws close IMO
Joined: 8/23/2004scott itty bitty goose,going for a new scott model next,but similar…great release and great for hu nting withI had to vote other. I use a Fletchmatic rope release. Its easy on servings, torque free and lets me shoot off the string. You can see that it gets a “memory” and is easy to attach quietly without looking.
Joined: 7/12/2004Carter is my choice. I’ve shot Tru-Fire and Scott in the past. To me, both the Tru-Fire X-Caliper (sort of a mid-range release) and the Scott Little Goose (higher-end) seemed inferrior to my Carter Two Shot.
The Carter is so much more customizeable than the Scott. The Tru-Fire was comparable in adjustments. What really set them apart is the trigger. The Two Shot’s trigger is exactly what a trigger for a bow release is suppose to feel like…super heavy and zero travel.
Joined: 6/25/2004Love my Little Goose from Scott!!
Have 2 of them,keep one for back up……..just in case.
Like the adjustment to length that can be made,prefer a single caliper,not big and bulky.I also prefer a buckle strap over velcro.It’ was the first release that i bought. It was a great price and i have been using it ever since i started bowhunting about 3 years ago. Probably not the best release out there but does a release matter as much as the quality of the shot or the proficiency of the archer?Tru-Ball Pro diamond…makes me kick out my target panic!!!IMO a thumb controlled firing is better than our trigger finger
Joined: 3/16/2006I shoot the tru-fire x-caliper for hunting and the tru-ball ultra 3 for target.
Joined: 3/7/2006i like my carter chocolate addiction , use it for comp. and hunting both
Location: OKOther…. Only because I like my middle finger trigger, not as much torquing of my hand to make the release go off. I also have a Tru-ball Pro Diamond that I tried to get used to, but I am much more consistant with the Cobra. I rigged up this trigger from an old shotgun, and I really like it.
