My daughter, 17, was getting shoulder pain when shooting her bow (no, not too heavy for her:-) and using a wrist-strap style of release. I let her use my Tru Ball release, this style of release puts the back of your hand next to your cheek at full draw (as opposed to the palm of your hand at your cheek). This changes the geometry of your pull enough, I believe, to take pressure off of your shoulder and relieve impingement on the bursa. She is now shooting again and enjoying it.

A few other benefits I've found with this type of release:
1. While hunting or in a stand I can leave this release attached to the bow string, when a deer is sighted I can quietly grasp the release without looking at it, keeping my full attention on the deer.
2. While hunting in cold weather I can keep my hand warm in a mitten or muff and be ready to shoot quickly with the release either attached to the bow or in the muff nice and warm.
3. I can use my hand for other things without the bother of a wrist-strap release dangling from my wrist and bumping into things.
4. A more natural feel when using this type of release, and easier on the shoulder.
5. Much easier to control the trigger with my thumb than the wrist-style and index finger release.

I suggest you try this style of release; I keep my old wrist-style release in my hunting pack in case I drop my Tru Ball while in the tree stand.

The Tru Ball Max Hunter Pro 4 has been a great release in the last couple of months. I'm new to archery and tried a few trigger releases. They never seemed natural to me. When I tried some thumb releases, this one stood out. I have to say that I do have smaller hands and the handle fits in my hand nicely, but if you have larger hands, you may not find it as comfortable. I love that it has four finger notches including the pinky. It's a great go between from a wrist-strap trigger release and full back tension release. Since you draw with your palm facing outward, your knuckles automatically find your anchor point much easier. The thumb release position adjusts very easily with an allen wrench and I haven't touched the sensitivity, but is possible if you wish to. I was a little concerned about safety on the off chance that it pops out of your hand while shooting. It does have an optional wrist strap that you can purchase but that attaches where the sticker is placed and IMO a little expensive for an accessory. So I MacGuyvered my own wrist strap with some 550 cord. I made it double adjustable with a small cobra stitch, through the notch of the thumb release. It works great and is inconspicuous. What's also great for you hunters out there is that it stays on your d loop so you're ready whenever the time comes. Oh, and this thing is quiet!!! I really enjoy using this release and would definitely recommend it to pros and beginners alike.

ok, so i hear a lot of people saying that it fails and fires on the draw. yes, i did experience that too. the issue is that this thing comes out of the package bone dry and the calipers have a tendency to stick open a little leading to a "misfire". this is very easy to resolve. all i did was drop 2 - 3 drops of oil in the calipers and problem was solved.

first thing is first, when you get the release put locktight on the set screw and oil the calipers as stated earlier and you will have a very good experience with this release.

I switched to this style of release after seeing a fellow archer use one at the range. I had always used wrist releases in the past, but after trying one of these thumb releases I knew I had to get one. The Tru Ball Hunter Pro 4 Release is made very solidly and I trust that it will last for quite a long time.

This release features an additional groove for you pinky finger, which is something I found to be essential if you're going to go with a thumb release. The thumb trigger position adjusts nicely and so does the sensitivity screw located on the back of the frame. I have mine set to only require a slight increase in pressure on the trigger in order to release the string.

I've found with these thumb releases that your lock point is also more consistent since you can position your knuckles behind your jaw much easier. Keep in mind that if you are switching from a wrist release, you will probably lose some draw length, so using a longer d-loop may be necessary to regain that length. All in all this is a very well made product with a smooth operating mechanism. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a rugged thumb release that is easy to operate and modify to each individual's hand.

Also, these releases are equipped to be fastened to a Tru Ball wrist strap so that you can have the best of both worlds.

I have been using a wrist-style release for some time, now. I love the feel and advantages that it gives me, but there are a few things that tend to bother me:

1. Inconsistent feel.
2. Inconsistent position.
3. Pressure along the wrist.

WHAT IS IN THE BOX

The release is the only thing in the packaging. I already have tools to adjust my bow sights and other accessories but I was surprised that it didn't come with a tool.

USE

Adjustment of the release was intuitive. The jaws rotate 360 degrees which is a big advantage for most users. The item has finger grooves which give good stability, though I would have preferred some checkering or knurling for the release to be a little bit more slip resistant.

ADVANTAGES

Like others before me, I have found more comfort, control and consistency using this particular release with my compound bow. Because the use of the thumb allows for more gross motor skill for me, and I can do this action with a glove. This gives me more flexibility and versatility in cold weather. Additionally, you can clip the release onto your bow string, until you're ready to draw and shoot. I am able to hold and aim, much more easily and comfortably without pressure on my wrist from a strap.

CONCLUSION

I am definitely much happier with this type of release over the wrist-strap variety. It allows me to use it with gloves with is a lot more flexible for me.
