This is highly comparable to the Stinger by TRU Ball. The Stinger features fully independent jaws and you pull the trigger to open the jaws and let up to close-completely silent and releases the string evenly, but compares with the similar rod style connection to the strap. If you are looking for a step up, you may look at the Assassin for another caliper style or the Beast I for a hook style jaw.
Carter Too Simple is an excellent release with adjustable barrel and trigger. It also has a self locking mechanism which takes the hassle out of locking it onto the D-loop. A lot of releases don't have that feature, which to me is just barbaric!
Started with trufire like yours but hated it. Always pinched and pulled out my facial hair on the side of the jaws. Decided to upgrade and went with the Scott shark release. Couldn't be more happier and they have a lifetime transferable no questions asked return policy.
Yeah u can't go wrong with the Carter's. I've got a quickie2 Great release. The Scott's are good too. I picked up a spott Hogg wise guy this year and its the best wrist strap I've shot. In my opinion anyway. No creep at all and the sears break like glass. The one thing I've learned about releases is u get what u pay for. For a regular archer like me with crummy form a good release is a must
Which ever one you pick pm me and i will send you my shooting articles on firing engines for hinges or thumb triggers and they will help you get started. I am a hinge shooter and love it but thumb triggers are awesome also.
Learning to become a real shooter has been so much fun and a huge challenge for me over the last couple of years, it is so worth it when the work starts paying off and you start experiencing what shooting can really be.
I am going to send you some of the stuff right now and you can read up on it, especially the spectator shooting article. You need to read it every day for a few weeks and let it soak into your brain because it is going to be your goal to become that kind of shooter when you get the new release. It will take time but it will happen.
Sometimes a release just feels right to you. If you can get your hands on as many as possible to try to see what feels good in your hands.
I like my TRU Ball Short-n-Sweet for hunting but would also recommend a TRU Ball Beast.
I prefer TRU Ball but try what you can and see what you like.
I went back into Academy Sports tonight and exchanged the Samurai for the Little Goose by Scott. They received a shipment and I was surprised to see them on the shelf. While I was in there helped some a couple ladies out buying archery gear for their husbands for christmas.
