There are pictures and prices all over the internet, take some time and look. Another bland question that no one here can answer. Only advice I can give is figure out which type and purchase a quality release the first time. Crappy triggers with a bunch of creep will never lead to accuracy.

any release is definitely worth spending the money and getting a quality release. i prefer a thumb trigger release, i am shooting the scott pursuit and i picked it up brand new for $120 off of the classifieds or an archery FB page (I cant remember which). i had a cheaper thumb release before it and it was garbage compared to this one. "buy once cry once" rings true for anything archery

Look at the best Tru Ball releases, Stan, Carter and Scott releases. I'd only consider the best models ( most expensive) from each.

What type of release is a personal preference. What one person likes, another may not. It is best to go to an archery shop and see if they Will let you try a few different styles, them make the decision yourself one which one fits you best. I personally started with fingers way back when, then went to an index finger wrist strap release, tried a thumb release for a while, and now have been back to an index. As for index finger releases, shot Scott caliper styles for many, many years. But, just in the last month I switched to a T.R.U. Ball Short-N-Sweet’r S2 open hook and really like the way it feels and shoots. Good luck in your quest!

I could agree. I've TRU Ball and Tru-Fire Index releases, TRU Ball thumb releases (3), but of older design (dont' care for the new ones), a Stan Shootoff and 4 Stan hinges.

Like many i started with a caliper wrist release. Over the years i have graduated to a thumb release. I currently use the Stan Perfex. There are way to many variables to just name a certain style or model. Experience is the best teacher.

If you are starting out get a finger release because they are really easy to master and can shoot great when you figure it out

No release style is any more inherently accurate - they're are still some top notch target shooters using a wrist style. So take the time to learn to shoot whatever you get. Shoot it correctly and it will be accurate. Don't expect to buy a hinge or a thumb and instantly shoot like a pro - not going to happen. Its not the release - its the shooter behind it. If as it sounds you are just starting out - start with something basic. As you develop you can swap and change styles all your like - but learn to walk before you try to run.

Don't waste your time with a index finger release as you will develop punching the trigger like 90% of people out there. For a first release I would get a nice thumb release and then switch to a hinge style to practice form.
