I am new to archery and just picked up a mathews black max 2 to play around with. It came with a sight and rest i just need to get a release. I have no idea what to get. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

The Spot Hogg Wiseguy release is awesome IMO... It has a super fine trigger adjust, rigid machined body to inhibit anchor point variances and it folds back out of the way while glassing... You should go try one... I was a scott guy for years but this release is sweet!

Wiseguy is my release of choice now also. Scott's are also great releases as well.

I am also new to bow hunting. I got a scott shark after it was recommended to me and I couldn't be happier.

Carter Rx1 is my best release. Crisp trigger and zero travel.

I have a Scott little goose, I just bought a spott hogg wiseguy today should be here by the end of the week. I like the scott alot, but I want a release I can flip back, I always seem to clack the release and rangefinder together.

Anything from scott would be good, I use the wildcat but i'm partial to calipers and Brudno you can just turn the release so its at the back of your hand

Scott Little Goose. I've used one for 11 yrs and it's still going strong. With that said, I tried a Spot Hogg Wiseguy and liked it, too.

the wise guy or a True Fire you want something that folds back out of the way for hunting. A caliper type may be a little safer and better in a hunting situation but its personal preference both are good.

I would say a Carter Lucky, great magnetic set up, it comes on a strap instead of a bar so u can tuck it into your sleeve while hiking, but its a little more expensive. Theres a great review of releases in the most recent ebj though.
