Hey guys so right now I shoot a Scott caliper release and really like it except for the fact that the rod attachment is so long I cant get my finger over the trigger enough to perform a correct back tension release. What release do you guys shoot and does is allow you to wrap your finger around the trigger so that you can shoot back tension?

I shoot the Scott little goose- It has a shorter rod so you can perform the release like you are describing. 3 seasons in and no issues- love it.

Tru-fire hardcore buckle fold back max. Hook release for simple and QUIET attaching to d-loop. Nice to keep folded back and out of the way while hunting. The length is adjustable as well.

I shoot a hot shot tempest. Yes back tension. And I shoot it because I practice with it and shoot 3d with it which kinda makes it just an extension of me. If that makes sense

I am interested in back tension releases as well! Anything that helps me become a better archer/bowhunter

Scott longhorn 3. Hinge release. Easy to use bt on and helped me forget my tp. changed my mental process getting rid of the tp I had and shoot as good as ever.

I have been shooting a Scott Mongoose for several years. I have fairly big hands and I can adjust it out far enough to be comfortable.
