Default TRU BALL Short N Sweet? Carter Quikie 2?

Anybody use this release? i currently use a stinger, what would i gain/lose by switching to this release in both hunting and 3D situations?

I also looked at the carter quickie 2 and like how you load the string on the same side as the trigger, i think that would work even better for me. But still the same style/concept so carry on....

I tried one but just couldn't get used to it. I had a tru ball tornado before that. Some people swear by the short n sweet, I just couldn't seem to get it back far enough to get good trigger contact. I am now shooting a Scott Little Goose. I have heard great things about the Carter 2 shot and would like to try one. They are a little spendy compared to the tru ball.

I shoot the Carter Quickie 2...absolutely the smoothest and easiest I've ever used.

I switched to a Short and Sweet this year. I really like it.

That said, the Carter is like the Tru Ball but with a really good trigger job

I will be shooting a Carter soon.
