My new back tension release. A Scott Backspin.

I thought I would finally enter the back tension world now at the age of 42. Its challenging to say the least, but I think I got lucky for one group and pulled this off. Now I can't duplicate it. Guess I need to shoot more and train a lil harder... Good reason right?

Be careful out there, that new Scott backspin could cost you a few broken nocks or worse.

The older I get the better I was.

Nice shooting! I keep thinking I want to give BT releases another try. I tried a few years ago and could never get comfortable with them.

Ha, when it comes to releases I council myself. Besides that release of yours cost more than my first compound bow. And the bow still shoots. Slow, but shoots.
Never did get around to shooting small groups. That can cost serious money too. To me, only the first shot was important.
I've had one release in twenty years. Shot good out of the package and had no interest in buying one of the more than 500 releases that followed.
That can cost some serious money.

No use looking for problems. The velcro still works. That release must have cost me a dollar a year.

Re: My new back tension release. A Scott Backspin.

looking good! I shot bt releases for a very long time including stanislawski 3 and 4 fingers for competition. One of the very best things you can do for muscle memory is stand 5-10ft from the target, draw, and go through your checklist before closing your eyes and focusing on the shot sequence. Don't worry about grouping--you know you can hit the bullseye at 20, 30, 40 etc, but you need to develop good form and muscle memory. Do this for a few dozen shots then put the bow away and repeat for a week or so. You'll be amazed at the difference it will make--promise! Remember, perfect practice make perfect. Oh, and buy plenty of replacement nocks!

Enjoy!

Re: My new back tension release. A Scott Backspin.

i never shoot multi arrow groups, i shoot an individual spot for each arrow. you'll still be able to determine your group size, but much less arrow maintainance.

iv'e never shot a back tension, but those who have told me you go backwards a few steps before going forward, but the end result will be better accuracy.

Re: My new back tension release. A Scott Backspin.

I have Scott longhorn BT release..
I use it to train and go back and forth to my index release..

They are great training tool and will keep you honest even with an index release..

I like it, but I wont be shooting target (Competition) anymore. To busy, with work and stuff. Once hunting is over, I shoot only three times a week, because I have a fishin pole in my hand the rest of the time.
