T-handle release rec's?

Suggestions? I'm looking to move from a wrist strap to a t-handle model.

Any suggestions for which to consider? Any to avoid?

Thanks!

I purchased a tru fire hardcore four finger 3 years ago and used it for one season. Did not like it at all. I bought a Tru-Ball Boss X two years ago and havent looked back.

The shop I tend to go to most carries mostly TruFire. What didn't you like about the Hardcore? Not questioning it, just looking for what folks did/didn't like.

I shoot a TRU FIRE hardcore four finger, and I love it... if these don't fit your hand the right way, your not gonna like it. I would shoot a few.. the Trufire, a truball, a Stan or even a Carter to see which it best for you... I like Stan's too...

I didn't like the fact that the head didn't swivel.

That's one thing that I would have recommended also...

Yep, that'd get me unhappy, too. Thanks for the heads-up. Maybe I'll take a ride down to Lancaster Archery....

The TRU Fire hardcore revolution has a head that pivots...

Re: T-handle release rec's?

I've been shooting an indoor league with a Hardcore Revolution since january and I really like it. Make sure you get the Revolution model, the head swivels 360 degrees.
I'm also trying to learn a hinge release and It's been kinda frustrating lol. I make 3 or 4 good shots then one wayyyyy off. It's a Tru Ball Sweet Spot II 4 finger.
I'll probably hunt with the 4 finger Revolution this coming season. if not, it'll be the Hardcore buckle.

I tried a back tension release... you really have to concentrate. I may try one again this year in the indoor league
