Greg,
Mine is a Truball Chappy Boss. I have nothing but good things to say about it. A truly excellent release.

Some of the other top shooters in the area shoot Carter releases, the insatiable for one, and they have nothing but good things to say about them.

None of these are cheap, so if you can try some first, it might not be a bad thing.

Good luck!!

Stan's are great releases, as well as Truball.

I've been a big fan of Carter releases for some time. The Atension and the Insatiable have the exact same grip, but one is a thumb trigger release and the other is a pure back tension style.

By having both releases I can go between the two and have the same feel in my hand, but different styles of releases.

Great products (but they ain't cheap....)

Truball and Carter are my favorite back tension releases. I currently shoot a Carter Insatiable with great results. Try out a few first to see which one you prefer. Like mentioned before these are not cheap so make sure you choose the one that best fits you before you buy it.

Greg,

Since I haven't needed a new release in about 3 years, I can't give great info on prices. Try going to their website www.truball.com. I have talked to the Summers family several times (Ben et al.) and they are very customer oriented. If you drop them an e-mail, I'm sure that they will be happy to help. Make sure that you let them know what size of hand you have (small, medium or large). My hand is small and has no problem fitting my Chappy Boss.
