Default which release to get

I currently shoot a Scott lil goose but I am getting a new bow and getting more serious about shooting so I am wanting to get a better release for shooting indoors and 3-d. I have lots of friends that shoot carters but i am kinda drawn to the tru-balls. I think that I want one that is triggered by your thumb. I am leaning towards the chappy boss or the extreme so I am wanting to get some input from you guys. What releases do you like and out of these two that I mentioned are there any preferences. Thanks in advance.

I have 2 extremes.

Both the extreme and Chappy are good releases as to which one its up to you if you can try them both and pick the one thats feels comfortable.

TruBall would get my vote. My favorite is my Chappy Boss, I have a little boss and sweet spot. All of them are great releases . . . the sweet spot helps with aiming ALOT! Visit your local pro shop and try a few different ones and see which you like the best.

I would second trying a few different releases to make a better informed decision-both truball and carter make great releases. Find the one that feels good for you.

parker_man: The Tru-ball Chappy Boss is a good choice, also the Extreme or Double Extreme. I think you would also like the Carter Insatible or the Insatible 2, both are triggered by the thumb, as far as a BT release the Atension would be a good choice, it is unlike the Tru-ball Sweet Spot, has no safety but an audible clicker.

If your a caliper man? You might want to try the tru-ball wildthing. It is a mixture of both a hand held and a caliper release. I' ve shot one for the past three years and it has never let me down.
