Default Back tension release

I have been reading about the back tension release in various magizines and books and was wondering if anyone uses this type of release. Is it easy to use? Does it really improve your accuracy? Would you recomment suing thistype of release?
I currenly use a Scott Little Bitty Goose with good results.

Thanks

YES, I DO

Is it easy to use? IT IS AFTER YOU GET USED TO IT

Does it really improve your accuracy? YES, IT MOST CERTAINLY DOES. I'M A FIRM BELEIVER IN A SURPRISE RELEASE NOW.

Would you recomment suing thistype of release? ABSOLUTELY

I wouldnt recomend changing this close to season. I have shot both and i prefer the wrist strap caliper release . Easy to use and theres nothing to get used to if you can pull the trigger on a gun you can use one. But as far as making you a better shot only you can do that . Practice is the key no matter what release you decide on .Learn your equipment and let shooting become as natural as breathing. proper form is extremely important learn it and never deviate from it then when that shot comes you will be ready.

I've been also searching for techniques on this subject and yesterday found a series of 1 minute clips on bow shooting tips by Randy Ulmer. I wish I would have bookmarked the sight, because I just tried to find it again and I don't remember where it was.
I think it was a link from the Peterson's Bowhuntingmag web site, and I did find one of the articles on the subject at this link: http://www.bowhuntingmag.com/tactics/me_063004/index.html

Please don't anyone spam me because I'm giving a link to another mag's site. [8D] Just trying to help out a fellow bowhunter!

BACK TENSION RELEASE: yes i use one all the time. i have a problem with the other types. i have a phobia of the trigger wanting to punch it. i have tried just about every kind also. i bought a release from HHASPORTS called the LP-1. GOTO HHASPORTS.COM it will be on the front page. it does take some getting used to thought but i am doing REAL GOOD with it. and you get a SURPRISED RELEASE EVERYTIME. i plan on hunting with mine this year in michigan where i live. if you can,t get the web site e-mail me and i,ll send you a pic of it. GOOD LUCK HUNTING AND BE SAFE. JAMES E. ARNETT
