Never tried a Nasty boy. Saw it in a catalog a couple times. Shot a Bernies Cant Punch for about a week. Took off the metal in front of trigger and hunted w/ it as a Scott Mongoose for yrs!
If youre having some anxiety issues while shooting, I'd recommend a real hand held BackTension release. Find someone who competes or shoots one really well in your area, and ask them for some coaching. It'll take a while, but when you come out on the other side, you'll shoot better than you ever imagined. As far as brands go-check out Scott Longhorns and Tru-Ball BT Gold series. Good luck.

i have been fighting tp for a couple of years and want to learn back tension
i have thought about the hand held but never knwn anybody to be able to try one
so i started looking at wrist strap style back tension
i saw the nasty bow release on the interenet and the hha lp3 but dont know anything about them

I learned to use a BT release on my own, but it took a tremendous amount of work and time. I shoot a pretty mean game now, however I couldve saved myself a lot of frustration had I contacted a good coach or pro shooter that uses a BT release. At first, I wasnt sure what it was I was trying to learn, or what a BT release was supposed to feel like! I believe that determination and time can see you thru most panic issues, but it takes a lot of understanding of the shot sequence. This is why I recommend finding some quality instruction.

Im all for it!!!! I lost my very expensive True ball H/T in the woods and have been beside my self ever since . It went with me on a ton of hunts and was my number 1 go to release for all things hunting and competition. I think this wrist strap B/T thing is pretty cool and I might buy one and give a thorough grilling to see if I like it.

You can shoot back tension with any release, thumb trigger, a index finger release, or just a back tension release. I would recommend if you are wanting to do some tourneys maybe try pure back tension give you a better understand and better feel for what you are looking for. As far as they go I would HIGHLY recommend Scotts or Tru Balls, both make good one. Carter makes one that can switch from a BT to a thumb trigger called the Attraction that I think would be worth a try. Carter makes good releases too, but like I said you don't need a "BT" release to shoot BT.

Looks pretty good to me. Seems like a more natural transition from typical index finger releases. Give it a try and let us know how it works out.
