Welcome to our official web site. Since 2007 our top quality back tension stationary hook style releases are admired and desired throughout the world. Our perfected enclosed index finger hole designed release is the first ever in the release industry. Our release design consistently creates the optimized self centering consistent pressure pivot point on your index finger allowing
repeatable superb accuracy every hunter or tournament archer desires!

Our release has revolutionized the archery release industry. We have created a
tidal wave in the archery release industry! Many other companies have now designed and manufactured many releases that are very similar to ours. Considering these facts without a doubt reinstates the truth that our release designed is extremely superb!
One Example below is....
My original 2008 Hooker Release.... screwed on top of the Scott Archery 2014 Back Spin using the thumb peg holes in each release.

You make the call....

Compound, Recurve, and Long bow shooters across the world are experiencing unprecedented performance with our releases!
Consistency - Dependability is guaranteed! Without any internal or external moving parts to break, lubricate, wear out or simply fail guarantees our releases will be extremely dependable for many years!

It is absolutely the release that defines KISS:
Keep It Simple Stupid

There is NO NEED to apply any type of oil, lubricant, grease, compounds, Vaseline, WD-40, liquid spry, etc. to the Rotational Teflon Sleeve. Applying any of these products or others may damage the Rotational Teflon sleeves operation. If need be a little soap and cold water in your kitchen sink is the best cleaning.
"Competition or Hunting"

Use our release with or without our custom made 100% leather wrist strap

DROHONINSKY sets two world records at Nove Mesto (CZE) Friday June 27, 2014 and Wins Gold Medal!

Davids choice of release is the New Patented "Pin-wheel"..... Gold 3 Finger in the 7/8 inch model with our Custom Made Leather Wrist Strap

FYI... The design of our release allows the shooter to draw the bow back with their thumb on the thumb peg. This acts like a safety as it turns the release as not to fire. Upon full draw to anchor point and on your target you relax the thumb off the thumb peg. This allows the release to rotate creating the first consistent optimized centering pressure pivot point on the index finger. Once this is created you continue your shot process and our release will fire easier than most other releases due to their hang up design.

It is amazing how the Hooker Release design helps in the left or right arrows issues. One example is....I have held my Hooker Release at full draw and let many other shooters pull on the outside finger hold until my release fires.... still shooting an X over and over again!

Determining the size to order:

If you are going to hold the release on the flat of your fingers (see diagram) the 7/8 inch model usually will work. Most women and kids usually use the 7/8 inch or the New 3/4 inch Simple Shooter model.

If you are going to hold it deep or use a light jersey glove the 1 inch model is usually better.

The overall release size is the same. The size of the hole is the difference.
