I love my trufire hardcore max. Comfortable strap, head swivels on a bearing, release body has 1" length adjustment, the trigger is adjustable for pressure and travel. I've found nothing I don't like about it.
Personally I don't like a thumb release for hunting because for me it's much easier to pull the weight with a wrist strap. Plus I guess since I have been using one for so long and I'm a competitive firearms shooter the trigger just feels like I have better control over the shot. Last since they are attached to your wrist they are handy & not in the way, don't flop around or you don't drop them.
No right or wrong you just need to do what works best for you and try a few.
I use a Spot Hogg Whippersnapper 3 finger open. I looped a bit of cord thru the handle and ta-da... a wrist strap. I like it 'cause- having shot fingers for 30 years- I draw better with a hand-held and the open jaw means I can put it on or take it off whenever I want w/out an annoying game-spooking "click".
I'm a spot 'n stalk mule deer/elk hunter. I rarely sit in tree stands or blinds for longer than a couple of hours.
