1 What release do you shoot
2 How many fingers
3 Why do you shoot this release, is there something special about it?

Im debating on what release to shoot. I just wana know what the Community is shooting for BT releases.

1. Carter evolution
2. three finger w/ thumb on safety
3. It makes you use back tension properly to get it to go off on a consistent basis. There is no cheating or rotating to make it go off. If your at full draw and stuck all you are going to do is turn red in the face and pass out before it goes off. Might as well let down and start over and do it right.

I'm currently shooting a Carter Atension hinge style release in 4 finger model. Why? It just fits my hand better than any others I have tried. I have found that most all hinge style releases all work on the same principal, just try several different ones and go with the one that fits your hand best and feels most comfortable.
I am always looking at new and different releases searching for the "perfect fit for me"
Hope this helps.

I just picked up a Carter Target4+. It is a thumb trigger, but I'm using it as a BT release. It's a four finger. I'm still struggling a little bit with it, but when I do it right it really helps me group well.

1) Stan Micro III (L)
2) 3 finger
3) I shoot it because it's the most comfortable handle for me and the head is very smooth. My release is a 3 finger but it started off as a 4 finger.:wink: I prefer to cut a 4 finger down to a 3. I don't like the tapper and size of the 3rd finger on the 3 finger model.

Everyone makes good hinges.....it really is going to come down to you getting your mitts on as many as possible and finding the one that you like the best. :) There are releases that have been mentioned that are great releases that I can't stand. You just gotta shoot them.

Carter evolution

I use a Carter evolution, four finger w/ thumb on safety. I agree with a previous post that it makes use develop and use a consistent, good form. It has helped me very much. I went to it so that I had to get my form right-it has doen that for me.
