I’ve owned one of these for the past 16 years. I’ve lent it to my son, which he loved it so much I just purchased another one for him. It is a great release for both hunting and target shooting. It can take a beating in the field and it can perform with accuracy and dependability on the line in competition. I do both and set it up for back tension and love the ability to hang it on the bow string “D” loop and have quick and ready access when in a tree stand. It has functioned flawless for the past 16 years. It shows signs of wear with scratches and all from going and coming to event shoots and hunting. Never failed on me. I highly recommend this release to anyone who wants a long lasting durable release they can use both in the field and the range. Carter makes one of the bests releases on the market. You get what you pay for. I still use mine after 16 years.
