Default New Release...Scott or Jim Fletcher?

I am in desperate need of a new release and was just curious on everyones suggestions.

I like both and am leaning towards the ones just for a loop. The rhino or jim dandy loop release.

I keep on trying different releases expecting to find something newer and better.........keep ending up going back to my trusty Scott Rhino. (3rd replacement strap).
Mine has about 42,000,000 shots on it and it keeps on going smooth as ever.
I would recommend the Rhino to anyone looking for a string loop release.
(I don't like the newer o-ring model that helps reset the head, I like it to just swing freely)

A buddy of mine has a Rhino and loves it. I have shot one quite a bit and like it, though I don't own one.

That being said, I use a Fletcher Fletchunter, and like Matt and his Rhiino, I have a gazillion shots on it and it just keeps on going. The Fletchunter works just fine with a loop. I have never used a Jim Dandy, but if it has the same Fletcher quality, it should be a fine release.

I bet you can't go wrong either way.

Get the highest priced Scott you can afford and shoot it until it feels like you were born with it on...

out of the two companys i would pick the scott releases they are pretty good releases and should not give you any trouble. just get one that fits you and is not bulky on you so that it is comftorable.
