Well I went to the gander mtn today...and came home with a Tru ball pro diamond release... Turns out when I draw back...well...I cant make it but half way...

I know that means it is set tooo heavy...but i dotn have an allen wrench to fit it! How small of one do you need????:eek:

You cant get what back half way?

The release to fire or the bow drawn?

And yes i had to buy a tiny one.

I use the trail boss. Awesome release.

Drawing is easy. Just keep your thumb off the button.

I know that but I think it is set to HEAVY...my hand is no where near the trigger...and nothing else is hitting it...the dloop is pulling through the jaws...:confused:

The d loop is in no way gonna pull through the jaws on the draw especially. You simply cant draw it!

What do you mean by that?? I can shoot a BT release just fine...but i cant draw a Thumb release?? Seems pretty weird to me if you think I cant...:confused:


Ive had a Tru fire release do this to me because the screw was too tight...I loosened it and it worked fine...


Nothin is hittin the trigger...it is firing at half draw...:confused:

If you know everything then whya sk the ?

BTW drawing a tru BT and a thumb button are 2 differnbt things. And if its firing at half draw you are either hitting the button or its set to LIGHT.

The loop will definately pull through the jaws and cause the bow to fire if it's not set right. He's NOT accidently hitting the trigger as he draws.:confused:
Needs to be set right. Hey *******, didn't you get a little allen wrench in the package with the release?

YES if its set too light it will. If its set to stiff no way.

I have a trail boss, a chappy boss and i shot a prodiamond and never had this trouble if it was set to heavy. ONly when its too light.

I never did claim to "know everything"...but I DID know I wasnt hitting the trigger...but oh well...i guess there always has to be some smart :censored: on just about every post...

Thanks to everyone else. I talked to my gpa and he has some small enough and Ill get them tomorrow so I can play around with it.

:wink: Oh yea...about the tooo HEAVY...that was on a Tru Fire caliper release and it was turned up really heave and the screw was hitting one of the jaws and causeing it to misfire during the draw...thats why i thought at first it was set too heavy because the tech turned it up(he must have turned it down) when I bought it...
