The only complaint I have is the wrist strap is very short. I’m on the last hole and my wrists aren’t all that big.
Likes: 1.) Can adjust the trigger pull to a heavier pull that my Wiseguy. I like being able to dial-in the heavier pull for hunting. 2.) Being able to fold back the release. 3.) The BOA dial and tightening the strap. 4.) Accuracy when shooting. 5.) The feel of the strap on my wrist. 6.) Overall adjustment length of the release.
Dislikes: 1.) The noise of dialing the BOA to tighten the strap. 2.) The audible click when locking the release onto the D-loop. 3.) Only one side of the release moves and opens up. For my eyes without reading glasses, it isn't easy to attach. I have to feel for the D-Loop and the release at the same time to attach the release. Early morning, low light conditions don't help. Previous releases that I've had from other manufacturers that had both halves opening are easier and quicker for me to attach without having to look at the release and D-loop.
Conclusion: I listed dislikes above, but the release is comfortable and being able to adjust both the trigger pull to my liking and the strap tension using the BOA is a win-win for accuracy. It fits properly and is a winner. I would buy another.
Been using this release about 2 months now and am very happy. Its well built and his a nice crisp trigger break.
Adjustablity was the key attribute for me. Wrist strap is soft and extremely comfortable. I do like the boa tightening system for the ease of use but not sure how durable it is, time will tell.
Crisp break once properly adjusted. The square trigger area felt to thick for my liking at first but I kept at it. I had to adjust the trigger to help me out. Once adjusted I started to like it. Mind you, I’m coming from a release that the trigger area is as skinny as a pencil so it was an adjustment at first as is all things when trying something new in archery. I have large hands and opted for this because the trigger bar or finger trigger is longer than the Wise Guy. I do really like the fill closed jaw upfront, but I still would like to try a Wise Guy because the trigger felt a little long for me. But again I’m coming from a completely different style release. All in all, I do really like it. Oh yeah, the buckle strap is great and will give me years of service. You’ll enjoy it, but I’m curious still about the Wise Guy. Purely for my own entertainment because I just love trying new stuff always trying to find an edge in performance. Luckily, I feel I found it.
