    I’m looking to get two releases for my kids. My son is going to be 11 in two months and my daughter is 8. I’m looking for some advice from those who have already purchased.

    Got my son the Cobra, waaaay to touchy for a little guy imo. If you flinch or so much as breathe on the thing it will release.

    Hmmm. Good to know.

    Does that cobra release have a tension adjustment?

    No. In fairness to Cobra I bought it without trying one out first, I actually thought it was defective and sent it in for warranty. They sent it back stating thats just how they are.

    I prefer T-handles for my kids. Most wrist straps are too long including the “junior” models. The T-handles are easier for them to quickly attach and do not seem to encourage trigger punching like index finger models. They also put less stress on their wrists. My daughter (11) uses a Tru Fire caliper model and my son (9) uses a Tru-ball.

    I started both of my kids out with the Cobra. It’s an excellent release and neither of mine had an issue with it being overly touchy as was suggested above??
    But, they were both taught to come to full draw with the forefinger off[/i:2keqd1rm] of the trigger and to respect and understand timing and tension. The last thing you want is to start a young shooter off with an overly-tight trigger that encourages them to punch the trigger on the shot.
    My oldest is now using the Patriot and it works very well for her as well.
    The Patriot was a bit longer than the Cobra. The Cobra length fits my 8 y/o son perfectly.
    Good to hear more and more guys are getting their kids involved in archery! :thumbup

    Both my boys 9 and 11 use the Patriot Jr. and it seems to work well.
