Wrist strap/finger release... release

Postby Jim Casto Jr » Thu Feb 04, 2016 4:17 pm

I found this interesting. I can see this being helpful for bowhunting and some forms of target panic.

I ordered one, Jim. I'll post a review once I've tried it out.

This is very preliminary, but... I got my Roger's release in the mail this morning. I couldn't stand it so I shot a few arrows.
Best I can tell this thing takes about all the weight off the fingers. You can literally hold "forever" with about all the weight on the wrist and back.

I know some people have questioned about this strap being legal for competitions. It'll be interesting to see how clubs make their determinations, but it's simply the normal finger release with a wrist strap-no triggers or ledges.

I think that's all I can say for now. Perhaps a little more in a few days.

marc,

The more I use it, the more I like it. I've found it a bit awkward with 3-under so I'm using it 2-under. It took a few sessions to find the sweet spot for length which is easy to adjust with the Velcro strap. Going to keep playing with it.
