I been using concho by Jim fletcher for 37 yrs never let me down. Used the 1st release for 30 yrs then I lost it. So I had to buy another one. Adjust trigger pull and length. He also makes many different designs. I prefer concho I add extra length to the cord at the butt end slip my hand threw it. Never have the sweat problem. Excellent releases.  Check his web site out.  Ebay for $42

Thumb release for me as well.  It is a tru-fire.  I found that a traditional wrist release had me moving too many muscles/body parts and I was shooting sporadically.  As soon as I switched to a thumb release, I anchor my hand, only move my thumb and my accuracy went way up.

Tru-Fire Edge Fold Back

I like it just fine, but may get one with hook instead of caliper.  It can be frustrating to get the caliper on the D-Loop when it is close to dark.  I think the hook may work better.

I run a Scott Shark.  Lot is nice features for a wrist release and a reasonable price if shop around.
  • Buckle strap so quiet putting on and if need to adjust in field. 
  • Double Jaw. 
  • Adjustable trigger so can get it nice and light and less prone to jerking trigger. 
  • The Shaft is length adjustable for those of us with long hands/fingers (or those of shorter stature as well).
  • Swivel shaft so it does not torque regardless of hand position.

I shoot with a truball ss assassin on a truglo boa wrist strap. As a back up I use a tru ball assassin bone collector edition didn't realize until I got it that it was different than the rest of three assassin line.

Now then, get your equipment—your quiver and bow—and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.  Gen. 27:3

I've been using a Fletch Hunter for 20 + years. Started out in 1988 with a PSE Magnaflite shooting long distance match. That bow was 48" A to A! Laminated maple limbs. Was a sweet set up. Not as flat shooter as todays bow's, but the most accurate bow Iv'e had.
