"Whalen's Hooker Releases"
or the new
In 2007 Our Original Release design.... created the first consistent centering pressure pivot point on the index finger
in the archery release Industry!
"Our Original Release Turning Heads"
All releases are available in a 1 inch or 7/8 inch model. The standard colors are Black, Red, Green, Blue or Gold.
The main body is 6061 aluminum with a stainless steel hook and screws.
Included with every purchase is a smooth and knurled thumb peg and a #50 allen wrench for adjusting the release.
Every release is ambidextrous. Simply flip release over and screw the thumb peg in the other side.
There are no moving parts to fail, wear out or break.
All releases can be used with or without a custom made top quality leather wrist strap.
The wrist strap maker (Marilyn) has been making custom horse saddles for over 40 years. She has sold them all around the world.
The design of our releases 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 centering pressure pivot point on the index finger. When you continue your shot process our release will fire easier than most other release.
The explanation of this is.... Our design eliminates the inconsistent finger pressure you experience with many other releases.
All of our releases are designed to act like a tetter totter... With NO inconsistent index finger pressure on the release your outside finger pressure makes this release fire very smooth and consistent.
Similar to the design of a firearm.... the trigger is designed in the middle for a reason.
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!!
It is absolutely the release that defines KISS: Keep it simple stupid!
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. The women and kids usually use the 7/8 inch 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.
