I'm looking to pick up some kind of release for my son. He's 6 and somewhat big for his age. What would you recommend I get?

He's shooting a Martin Tiger.

thanks!

I know it's not what your looking for, but at that age I would recommend just sticking with fingers. My 5 y.o. has the "no-fingers" on his bows. Works great for youngsters.

bear young guns and release

switch bows and try the quest razorback or the trufire patriot jr or short web. My six year old daughter shots the bear young guns at 22 pounds, 14 inches, she used to shoot the tiger, what a difference when she moved up. she currently uses the quest but soon will be in the short web from trufire

can't really just go and switch bows at this point... The Tiger is fine for now... but yeah, it does make sense to try to upgrade soon.

TRUBall Stinger. You can shorten the length of the release for small hands, and have room to grow to adulthood. The velcro strap is very comfortable and can be made to fit very slim wrists. Also, the jaws self-close so it's easy for the little ones to load. Very affordable, too.

No fingers is what i would use. They are cheap and they slide over the string.

Carter Quickie 1 for my son. He loves it, and the strap can adjust to where he's gonna use it until he's an adult...

+1 for Cobra Pro Junior

My 5 & 7 yo sons both use one of these and they work great seems to help them pull a little more, give them more consistencey which translates into confidence. Just watching them act all high tech and quote "get strapped in" makes me smile. Good sturdy little release and they only cost 19.00.
