    Default Carter Releases

    Does anyone use a Carter Backstrap for hunting? I just traded a case for one and was wandering. I'm new to the back tension releases and appreciate your input!

    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    Marine hunter, I don't use the backstrap, but I do use the Loesch trubacktension release for hunting. This release works on the same principle as the backstrap.

    If you have TP in any form this type of release will help alot. It help me thru a severe case of TP. It will take alittle time to get use to it. Measure your holding wieght & set the backstrap to go off between 1 &2 pounds heavier . You will shoot better. The first time might scare you when it goes off. No more punchamatic.

    Ray Ray is right, set 1 or 2 pound heavier than your hold weight.
    Enjoy your Carter

    If you set it just above your hold weight, how would you pull it back without setting it off? Sorry, that might be a stupid question.

    Shooting a back tension just takes practise.

    The safety prevents it from going off until your at full draw.

    I checked it out on their site and it looks cool. I have been experimenting with BT a little and have had good results. I may have to try it out. I have my current RB Copperhead set at hair trigger and it will go off when I pull hard enough.

    Thanks for all the input. When you say adjust it to 1-2lbs above draw weight, would that be after the let off?
