Yes I have.. I had the same inquiry.. it’s great pulling the bow back, making it even easier to pull back with less stress on rotator cuff and shoulder ... then it get awkward with my anchor point and that’s why only the shooter will have to try it. You’ll have to buy it and try it or go to a pro shop and hope they have one... with my anchor point, the lever wouldn’t fit next to my face comfortably.

I had one, great for pulling the bow back, but as double0lx stated, I couldn't get my anchor right either. I even bought on for my wife at the same time, (mail ordered) and they are a lot bigger than they look. We sold them both.

Is the problem of not getting your anchor point right due to the size or some other factor?

Really like mine but I ditched the wrist strap.

I shoot one with a wrist strap and really like it. I use my middle finger on the trigger and use back tension to get it to fire. The thumb post has me intrigued. How do you fire yours?

I've tried it different ways but I draw it back and with the thumb barrel I can easily rotate the release as it is designed and shoot it with my index finger. Just like hooking it to the dloop and letting it hang like a thumb release. Can't get comfortable with a thumb release with heavy hunting clothing on so this works great for me.

There isn't a shop that has one any where close to me, so to try one I would just have take the leap and buy one. I've put off doing that so far, but I may take the plunge and just sell it if it won't work for me. Thanks for your input.

I own one but don't use it...As noted above it certainly makes drawing easier and smoother. For me the movement for either forefinger or middle finger to the trigger seems very clumsy. In fact I somehow managed to launch a couple of arrows before getting my sight to settle. I will probably give it another go this summer because of ease drawing.

I do agree with the awkwardness. Although it took a couple of weeks, I did get used to it. That’s why I was interested in Vipers thumb peg set up. It looks more natural. I do like using my middle finger to trigger the release. I will probably stick with the wrist strap, but I like to tinker.

I just got one, probably has more to do that it's designed to be triggered with your middle finger, it does make drawing much easier though.
It is actually designed to be shot with your index trigger.....That is why the hand pivots and rotates around to allow perfect alignment with your index finger. If you only tried shooting it with your middle finger, that is probably why you had problems. That said it can work either way. If you find a consistent way to shoot it with your middle finger that is great as it is another way. But the initial design was for the index finger.
