Right on Jeff. The brass is more easily modified too, without ruining the finish. Once you start shaping the anodized handles they don't look too good.Not 100% certain, but I think the physical weight of the release is the only difference, with the brass being much heavier. Some, I think, prefer the heavier release in their hand......feels like you're holding something. Basically personal preference I believe, not a matter of one being better than the other....like most everything else in archery .
