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. 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.
