You use it for hunting? Is it not too loud to use?
To the op- There is no "best" release, because almost all of them work just as well as the rest. It just all depends on what you want to use.
For hunting, the Tru Ball Diamond is a great one, and it is very quiet. The Absolute is also a GREAT release, and apparently you can use that for hunting. Also, the Carter Chocolate is a good one to look at.
For target, you have a few more options because of noise. If you want a thumb trigger, the Absolute, again, is a great one. Personally, I really like the ST360, and the rest of the Tru Ball ST releases are great as well. Also, take a look at the Carters-they make a lot of really good thumb triggers, you just need to pick them up and play with them.
Or, if you want to shoot a back tension, you have a few more options as well. The Evolution from Carter is interesting, because you set off the safety and then just pull through to get it to go off. If you want a hinge release, the Tru Ball HT is great (I use that one), as well as the BT Gold, TRU Tension, and the Carter Only.
