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.

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.
