7 Views Picking a Release

First of all we need to debunk some myths.  Releases do not affect shot speed, green window size,or shot make percentage.  The only thing they slightly help with is higher releases help with shot contest and some releases have better visual cues on when to let go of the shooting button.  I love the release Lbird/Gay 60/40 Full Speed, but you have to find what works for you.  Other good releases to use include Duncan, Aldridge, Release 127.  Anything with a high release point.

Here is a video trying to show that releases do not affect Shot Speed.
