Bear archery aquired them like 2 years ago I believe. Check bears website for releases.

They're not really the same, I mean they've dropped the entire Fletcher name, but here's what happened:


All made of Chinesium. :\

I clicked the above link for Bear Releases.
Trophy Ridge is made by, or is a sub-brand of Bear Archery?
I was not aware of that.

I have a Fletcher "Outsider" release that was used a few times. It is in great shape.
Not sure if that is the model you are referring too.
Let me know if you would like purchase it and we can work something out.
I appreciate it but I"m good. Thank you.

Bear archery is owned by a large company that owns several different products. Trophy Ridge being one and now Fletcher.

I've used the FletchHunter for about 25 years or so. I own 3 of them because I never want to be without one.
I was given a Fletchmatic rope release out of pity when I was in the military in the late 80's. I was using some big plastic release..........lol. The good thing about rope then was it was easy on the servings and didn't let you torque the string. The good thing about it now is it's easy on the serving and I don't need a D-loop.

I can't shoot lil' 30 inch bows but I'm fine with that so it works. I gave the one away I had in the mid 90's that was given to me to help out another new archer and I'm STILL using the new one I bought then. I bought a back up because they became part of the way I shoot and I really like them. The backup was not for if the release failed it was because I hunt and wanted an extra in case I drop mine or forget it.

So at least 25 years on the one I'm using and it's in fine shape and the backup is untouched virtually except to set it up and test fire so I'm good for at least 40 years. Since I'm 60 that'll mean I never have to buy another release. The funny thing is the old one I gave away that was given to me was blue and the finish was literally gone except for in cracks and places where you could still see the blue.

Mine is 25 years old and still has a LOT of red on it so there is no telling how old and much use that old blue one had on it...........these things are built to last.
