you need it on the heaviest, or heavy enough so you can preload

draw back....take your hand off the release and place your index finger b/n the first and second joint on the trigger and rest it against the trigger

ease into the dot or whatever.....then do the back tension thing however you imagine it...

I like Michael Braden's technique....picture yourself pulling your release elbow back away from the target...use that as a focal concentration point...

I Love It.....................

OK...I was wondering why this magnet in the bag didn't have a slot like the others

even the medium setting on the heavy magnet is too light for me...I can preload and rest my finger on the trigger but the shot goes off way too fast, for me at least.....kinda like how my short-n-sweet was.....

Hi Riverghost

The magnet with no slot is the lightest magnet and has no adjustment.

Flipping the slotted magnet around will not change the magnet pressure. If it feels lighter doing that the magnet is not seated properly and might cause pre-fires.

Like Jose said put the trigger in your second joint and pull off with back tension. If it feels way to hard to fire that way your draw might be a little long to shoot back tension.

You can put some sling shot rubber around the trigger for more leverage or make a larger trigger. the threads are 4-40", just make sure the trigger is not against the release base.

The pic shows the finger position for pulling off with back tension.

PM me if you need more help.
Thanks, Ken Stanislawski

Yes, just order one threw Hot Shot. They didn't have a lighter magnets at that time.

The release was designed for a firm trigger pull for the use of back tension. The light magnet will not take it down to a light hair trigger.
