I have decided I want to try one of the releases designed specifically for d-loops. I have looked at the scott, tru-ball and jim fletcher and was wondering if anyone had any pros or cons to these to help me decide. I am looking at the wrist strap models for mostly hunting purposes. Thanks.

Release

I have used Fletcher releases with good success and no failures. I use the Primos 44 cal. release made by Fletcher now & love it.

Tru ball

short-n-sweet is in my opinion the #1 hunting release in fact many fita shooters shoot them as well due to dependability and adjustability.

IMO - I would recommend the SABERTOOTH over the RHINO XT :confused: .... The reason why is because I had used the RHINO XT while setting my bow, I then grabbed my wife's SABERTOOTH release and noticed I was hitting to the right of my pin's :mg: , I then grabbed the RHINO and was back on target...

I was wondering why this happened and after close studying I noticed that the hook on the RHINO was not clearing the draw string and was kicking it to the left... I then thought it was a design flaw, I then contacted SCOTT Archery and their rep said that it was normal for that release :confused: , so I stole my wifes SABERTOOTH and have used it sense, all the time :) with my hunting bow :wink: ....

Scott Sabretooth NCS takes a lot to beat. Very easily adjusted and give a very clean release.:darkbeer:

Ive had scott and fletcher. Early on scotts were all we used in ky. rated 10 out of 10. I tried a fletchmatic in early 90s and had about 3 of them shot religiously target and hunting. rate 10 out of 10. I guess its preference, both are awesome.
