Default Feedback from release aid shooters/hunters

Would like to know your thoughts or experiences with Scott rhino xt, Carter rx1, Carter chocolate addition and witch you think is best for 3G and hunting. Also would like to know your thoughts about drawing back high pound bows with wrist strap index finger release or thumb trigger release witch type is easer draw back the bow. One more thing I also would like your insight, wearing hunting gloves and using a thumb trigger release, any problems. thank you guys for any feedback all of my questions.

Which type of release works best, or is easier to draw, is purely a personal thing. Whatever you feel most comfortable with is the "best" for you.

Higher poundage bows are no problem for most release aids in good repair.

I usually wear thin glove liners and cut the fingers, or thumb, off as needed. The main problem would be accidental discharge (like sticking your heavily gloved trigger finger into the trigger guard of a rifle or handgun with a sensative trigger. You have to be able to feel the trigger, whatever type you shoot.

I switched to a "single sear" type, the scott silver horn, its similar to the rhino. It def helped my groups. I suspect it puts a left or right "canter" to my shots some times cause it does release from 1 side of the d-loop. (I tend to want perfection). Only down side to releases like this is hunting, Ive not had problems with mine, but when I had the clip on d loop type, I could leave it clipped on and not worry about it, also suspend the weight of my bow from my release/ d loop. Cant do that with single sear. Also makes spot and stalk a little harder, you have to look at your release aid. But Ive gotten pretty used to it. Go with a belt style (velcro sucks), and I like the scotts nylon connector strap series...
