Best Bow Release

The bow release refers to the way the string handles when shooting an arrow. A number of different release aids are available that transfer the load from your fingers to your wrist and arm. These mechanical releases help you achieve a smoother release for improved accuracy. Releases offer a range of features so you will probably have to experiment with different models before you can decide which one is best for you.

Cobra Pro Caliper Release

Cobra's Pro Caliper Release is a gun design that features a curved trigger and center release caliper jaws. These give you a more reliable release and protect the bow string even when subjected to heavy use.

T.R.U. Ball Outlaw Bow Release

The Outlaw release from T.R.U. has free-floating jaws and an effective ball release system. A rope connection between the head and strap creates less torque for improved accuracy.
