need a new release

Postby jehler » Wed Mar 25, 2009 11:27 am

I've been shooting with the cheapest true fire relase made for about 2 years, it works but i want to upgrade. who shoots what and why?
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

I shoot a fairly cheap Tru Fire and have not problems. However this year I will probably be switching over to a Scott Little Goose. It feels better and the trigger is smoother and lighter than my Tru Fire's. The only thing I would change about it is the buckle, I'm just not a big buckle fan. I prefer velcro but can live with the buckle.

I have a scott little goose. It has a hairline style trigger that I like. You can order it with a velcro strap if thats what you prefer. :thumbsup:

Definetly Scott Little Bitty Goose, small stays out of the way and has a great crisp trigger as well as a lifetime warranty. I know people that have been shooting them for 10-15 years and still swear by them.

Releases are overated. Don't think more expensive is better. As long as it has an adjustable trigger you're good.

I stand by my Scotts releases, it is personal opinion but I think there is a difference over cheaper one's. At $54.99 (last I checked)they really arn't that much more than Tru-Fire or Cobra.

I can tell a difference. When I shoot my cheap Tru Fire at home then go to work and shoot the Cobra or Scott releases there's a huge difference and I'm not really a big fan of the jaws that close by themselves. Don't get me wrong the Tru Fire has done it's duty, but releases are just like a rifle trigger. They can be sloppy, crisp, or somewhere in between.

I have shot the nice ones and the sorry ones. I'm not saying go buy the cheapest one you can find. But you don't need a $100 release to shoot acurate and precise. That hair trigger will get you in a lot of trouble come deer season. So if it can be adjusted to your pull and it's comfortable in your hand. Use it. Don't get caught up in who has the best name brand stuff. You'll be broke

Very well put G.G. no need to go out and break the bank as long as it's not something that is going to break after two hunts.

I was using my brother's Scott release, then I was out and saw a Redhead I thought I would try. Man it is really comfortable and I am more consistent.

Fit IMO is more important than cost. I have used a couple and as long as it fits well you will shoot fine.

I take serious offense to that!!! :mad: :tongue: I shoot a carter evolution (look it up, its more than a hundred bucks) and I need it to shoot accurately!! :yes:

But seriously, the more expensive the release is the better the quality, as a general rule. It's like with shotguns, would you rather shoot a remington 870 or a SBEII. The 870 has its place and so does the tru fire, but the quality release is the scott. :thumbsup:

I ended up buying another 19.99 tru fire. I got to the store and had a friggin anxiety attack at the cost of some of them. I bought jehler jr. a scott little bitty goose with the money I saved, it is really adjustable and works great for him :thumbsup:
