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 :).

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.

hanyueh, can't go wrong with a Zenith...

I have a brass release (not a zenith) and a zenith in aluminum. I like the weight of the brass handle and wish I had one for my Zenith. I've tried a dozen different releases and always come back to my Zenith.

I wish Joe offered the brass in every size, but I imagine the manufacturing costs would be nuts.

Zenith BT Releases are the best! I have both, but actually prefer the aluminum 3 finger in the regular size even though I have bigger hands.
