View Full Version : Release Aids

I've researched release catches, metal and string. I'm not comfortable with the metal ones, seems they have issues.
The string loops seem OK.
My problem has always been the alignment of my peep sight. I currently use the surgical tubing...but I'd like to get away from it. Without it the string loop doesn't align the peep very well. My thoughts were that the metal loop would help me get away from the tubing.
If anyone has a suggestion for a metal loop, I'd be interested in your opinion. Are they noisy? Do the cause the string to slap forward to much? Is there one made of a durable material that isn't metallic?

Thanks in advance.

Fetch I know you are asking about a metal loop, but as far as your peep rotating, if you go with a quality string like Winners Choice, and serve your peep in you can manipulate your peep by pushing your serving towards your peep sight or pulling it away to rotate it a little bit to line up. Or you may need to press your bow and put a twist in your string to get it to line up. Once you have your string shot in, peep where you like it you shouldn't have a problem. You can go to you tube and do a search for peep sight installation, and watch how it is done if that will help.

I agree with Ruttin, quality string , get it shot in and set your peep and you shouldnt have any rotation problems, i would not recommend a metal loop, go with a good loop matl like BCY.

I'll make a third to that. Work with the sting some, and the release wont make much a difference at all.

String loop with a quality string. I like Americas Best, shoot it for awhile and rotate your string to get your peep lined up. you shouldn't have any more problems after that and you can get rid of the tube that always breaks at the wrong moment. I tried the metal loops and did not like them at all.
