With the archery season winding down this week, I'm thinking about getting into comp archery to keep my shooting skills in check during the off season. Was told that getting a backtension release would help. But I haven't a clue as to what I should be looking for. Anyone know of a good inexpensive release that I should get my hands on?

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.

I reccommend archerytalk.com for a used one
the evolution is nice
It makes a world of difference when you learn to shoot with back tension and not punch a trigger
