    I love the med shootoff no better release but for "me" spot n stalk hunting I love the push button load.And yes you do get used to the loading but its a personal dislike.Since the exxus closes the same it wouldn't be much diff the shootoff.

    Glad to see Scott building what I bet is a top notch thumb trigger release. I'd try it out if I was looking for a release. If it had an open hook like the Carter Embers I'd try it out even though I do not believe I need to replace the Stan ShootOff or Embers.

    I use open hook Embers for hunting and a ShootOff for 3d and spots. The open hook releases are simpler and take less "precision" to hook up than any other type of release. Using one release for all games is ideal.

    Can't wait to get one...Scott makes the best releases. I'm sure the Exxus will not disappoint.

    They do look sweet. I am looking for a nee release. I am torn between the exxus and the tru ball incredible. I am using a boss x and like it and I like the swivel head. But I have a Scott wrist strap release and know they make a quality product. they also have awesome customer service. The only thing that may stop me from getting the exxus if the fixed head, not sure if it will cause problems. I kind of like the one with the swivel.

    Did everyone see Levi said he is loving it. That it was the best 40 targets he has shot in terms of feel in his career. A high statement.

    So how does it close? I have not used many of these. I assumed you press the button on the back and it closes, press the trigger and it opens?

    If its like the shoot off the button is a safety, you close the jaw and it won't go off until you press the trigger.

    Lancaster didn't have them at Vegas when I asked them this past weekend.

    I did play with the demo units at the Scott/CBE booth. Sad to say, I'm a bit disappointed. There's no heft or weight on them - it's really light. The adjustability is decent, but the releases were set extremely heavy the two times I was at the booth.

    Any updates on this? I have been shooting a trigger release for years but am wondering if I would see any advantage by going to a thumb release. Better anchor points? More stable pin hold? What advantages are there?

    Sweet that you can see in the weight spectrum. Wish I had that ability. All I can do is see what something tastes like.
