    Release

    I recently bought a Bear Encounter and am switching to compound after shooting a recurve for a while. Just couldn't get my groups down to where I felt comfortable hunting with. My question is about a release. I am on a budget so a Carter is out of the picture for right now. I have shot Scott and Cabelas. I like the Scott one I shot but never found out which model it was. I found a Scott shark on Ebay for $46. That is about my price range. Any other suggestions or thoughts? Kinda leaning toward Scott of some sort but not sure which model. I know I want a buckle strap. Open to all ideas.

    I shoot Scott exclusively... there may be better ones out there but I'll never switch as I love mine.

    Same here....Rhino XT at the moment. And a Silver horn as my back up. Shot it for years and loved it.

    A release is one of those items where 20 bucks or so makes a difference (IMO).
    Went through a lot of cheap ones until a friend loaned me his.

    I shoot Scott exclusively as well. Currently shooting a wildcat but I had a mongoose but lost it.
    I just found a new Scott Wildcat on Amazon for $45 w/free shipping.
    Almost bought it…….

    I also shoot a Scott lil goose and carry one for a backup though I have never needed it. I am not a Velcro fan and this release comes with a buckle wrist strap.

    If you want a carter, look on the Archery Talk classifieds. Always seems to be a deal on used ones. I can't help with others. Have shot Carters exclusively for 15 years. Guys will buy them to try out and not like them for some reason and sell them.

    I just started shooting a Carter RX1. What a difference from my Scott lil goose. More like a rifle trigger. No extra play and super smooth.
