Re: Entry Level Backtension Release
You are in the greatest neighborhood for trying releases. Sprint, don't run or walk, to Lancaster Archery. They will help you figure out if you need a hinge, thumb trigger, "pure" back tension, etc. I found the best one for me to learn was the Carter Evolution+. It is designed as a training release. I shoot that indoors, and use a Carter Chocolate Lite (thumb trigger)for 3D and hunting. I also use a Bernie's Knuckle Under as a change up. I'm going to play around more with a hinge for indoors this year for competition and keep using the Evo + for practice.
The best advice I can give you is pick one- stay with it- don't give up. It will take you quite a while to get proficient, then a lot longer to get good.
