I have noticed a lot of guys like shooting a thumb release for 3D but i have always shot a caliper. I just wanted to get you guys opinions on what worked the best for you and why.

TruBall St 360

I love this release. I shoot it with abck tension and had some problems at firts but just kept working in it.
If you look at the pro's shooting quite a few use a Short & Sweet and shoot it BT. Tim Gillingham told me he uses a trigger because it gives him more control when the conditions are windy or rainy, So you can use a caliper and do well shooting with it. I think Michael Braden does the same as Tim when shooting 3D.

Carter Evolution is my 3D release in fact it the only one I use:darkbeer:
I have decided to commit this year to the evolution release. I have shot the clickers (tru ball and scott) for 4 years, but I figured out how to "speed up the shot". I really think this evolution is going to be the ticket; atleast I've done well with it so far at this year's shoots.

I switched to a TRU Ball Chappy Boss last year from a wrist strap release. Helped me dramatically - I always wanted to punch the trigger on the wrist strap. I try to shoot the Chappy back tension, keeps me honest that way. Liked it so much I hunted this past seaon with the Chappy.

I shto a caliper for years then out of nowhere developed target panic on 3-D targets. Switched to a Carter Colby BT release then a Carter Fits Me. Have been shooting the Fits Me ever since. Tried going back to a caliper for hunting, and just can't stay away from my thumb trigger. That is all I shoot for 3-D and hunting, and it has increased my shot accuracy on both!
