I'm looking to get a thumb button release, and am torn between the Scott Sigma and any of the Carter releases. I know that Carter makes quite a selection, and have heard good things, but am pretty loyal to Scott releases. This would be my first thumb button, and I want to make the best purchase I can. I'm looking for some insight, and I'm sure I'll get it here, thanks

Carter is good, Stan is better(for me) and Scott hasn’t been on my top of the list.
I love my stab sx3. Really adjustable and has good cs. Carter is less adjustable and doesn’t fit my hand as well and isn’t as crisp. Just my Opinion.

I have the Stan SX-3, but have shot the Scott Exxus, Truball 360 ST (liked it), Truball Max , Tru Ball Absolute 360 (liked) and Stan Perfex (really liked it). I ended up sticking with the SX-3 as it was the best for me in fit and adjustability as well as workmanship.

Stan’s have a much better trigger system than the Scott. Carters are great but lack adjustability in the trigger.

Would you please be more explicit and describe in what way "Stan's have a much better trigger system than the Scott." What attributes of the trigger are notably "better"?

Thank you.

I think they have one of the best because you can get it fine tuned to your personal shooting style, it’s more of a crisp click on the shot than carter(never shot the scotts but haven’t seen anyone shooting to so maybe a reason) and I like you can rotate the thumb position a lot of differing ways which makes it easier to tune to the shooter.

currently been shooting a nock 2 it for a while, i gave my buddy my sx3 after shooting the nock 2 it. it that is the biggest thing i miss about the sx3, being able to position the peg where you want it.. probably would take it back if he didn’t live in a different state now lol.

Get a Stan and a Carter - I love my Shootoff TL but I also love my Evo+, SilverBack and Nock 2 It, can't go wrong with any of them. I would avoid the Scott, didn't care for any I tried.

I also see there are so many types of Carters. I've heard good things about them, what models do you guys recommend?

I got a Carter, and love it. I got a good deal on that release, which is why I chose that one over a Stan. It's amazing how clean the break of the trigger is compared to my conventional wrist lanyard scott.

Just curious which carter? I have shot a lot and have come back to the carter too simple both times i've bought. The elk woods ate my first one. Stupid me!
