I have a Stan Xtinction release I have been using since last year. For the hunting season, I switched and put a strap from my TruFire hardcore release because it is quieter. I do like the standard Xtinction strap better, so this spring I switched the straps back and I have been using it that way. But the problem still exists, it is squeaky and loud, no good for drawing on a whitetail. Now, I have not tried lubing it up or conditioning it yet, but I would like to know if anyone has tried anything that has worked, or used another strap that is comfortable, and works better than the stock Stan Xtinction strap.
