Default Thumb Trigger Releases??

I'm thinking about going to a thumb trigger release and was wondering which one people prefer?

the chappy boss is one of the top of the line ones wiht a very crisp trigger, but for a little cheaper tru ball also makes the 3-D thumb pool or there pro diamond seris and are very nice good luck with your shooting!

Spot Hogg has the Cascade models that you "relax" to shoot. These are very effective for target shooting, and will cure trigger punching. Not a very good design for hunting though.

WA Shooter,

Says you. I've been using a Model 8 Cascade for about 8 years now. I also have 2 Model 10's that I haven't even shot since I got them 2 years ago. But just because it has a rope soen't mean ya can't hunt with it. I can hook mine up in about 2 seconds without even looking at it.. It's called familiarity. Familiar as in about 300 shots a week, on average.

Carter makes several models of thumb trigger releases, you just have to see what fits your hand, and form. I shoot a Carter Fat Boy target release, it is a three finger release and is a little thicker than some of the other models.

I'm also a Carter shooter.......they are the only thumb trigger releases I have used that don't feel "Mechanical". Put one that fits into your hand Vs a Tru Ball etc and you will see what I mean. They are so smooth and rounded that they feel "Soft".
Very comfy releases to shoot. They have quite a few finger patterns and frame sizes to get a good fit.
I am currently shooting a "Just Cuz" 3 finger, but have shot and owned an Insatiable, Insatiable 2 as well. I will probably pick up an Insatiable 3 or another Just Cuz for back-up as I head into the more important 3D shoots this year.

I am currently using a TruBall Extreme with Talon Head for both target and hunting.

But am seriously thinking about getting the new Mag-Tek thumb release designed by Ken Stanislawski

Here is what it looks like best thing is no springs

I also use a Carter and have for many years. My favorite is the Same Old Thing
which I have had for over 10 yrs. or more and it has been a fantastic release and
still is. I also owned a Hole Thing 3 and it was great also. I just got a new one
2 days ago called the Target Master-2 and so far it's great . You can set these
releases very light, like a fine custom gun trigger with no travel. Yes, you will
pay the price for them but they are more than worth the price IMHO.
