You looking for thumb or wrist? Every once in awhile i see used thumbs selling for under $60 on fleebay. But if you're looking for a cheap but good quality wrist release i say you can't go wrong with the Tru-Fire Smoke release. I still carry that as a backup. I've had many more expensive wrist releases... And that is the cheapest and my most favorite wrist release i've ever owned.
If I could go back and start again, I'd go with a higher quality release. You likely won't regret it. In terms of bang for buck and what they allow you to do, I think your money is better spent...my opinion only. I have a Stan now, no more releases for me unless I lose it.
