Default New Release Aid...need advice

I'm looking at some new release aids. I have shot a Wynn freeflight for 15 years now...and it's an ok release. Not sure why I never tried others, but I'm sick of having my right hand partially immobilized by the release.

I am looking at the Scott Archery Mongoose and the TRU Ball Sniper....and other suggestions are appreciated as well as experiences with either release.

Thanks again.

If you are looking at a wrist strap style release, i would recommend the Scott for sure. I love my little bitty goose. I got mine off of ebay brand new for pretty cheap too.

Scott makes several nice releases, but the best wrist strap release I have ever shot is the Carter 2 Shot

The trigger on the 2 Shot is exceptionally crisp.

Dont disagree with you at all on the Carter. Its just a bit expensive for my taste for a trigger relase.

I shoot a Scott Mongoose, switching from the Scott Sabertooth. I love it.

Bought a Scott Little Bitty Goose RCS....love it! Shot in my basement last night. Big difference over the Wynn in trigger ease, very happy. I too would have bought a Carter, but I got the Scott new for $49 and couldn't pass it up.

Sometimes it's better to spend a couple of $ for the best product you can find. Do you think you will know the difference in a couple of years

I still have a couple of Scotts, but there is no comparison on the trigger pull of the Carter 2 Shot.
