Which Release for Youth?
I’m getting a 10 year old into archery. I bought him a toy bow because he wanted one. He played with it so much that I decided to get him the real deal. So this past Christmas I set him up with a Diamond Infinite Edge Pro.
It came with a Pioneer release but it’s unbelievably short. The trigger is way back at the front of his palm.
The local shop let him use a B3 Alpha which was pretty nice. But before I invest in a new release for him I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask the most intelligent experience bow hunters on planet earth. ;-)
If you are looking for a wrist buckle release it is hard to beat the tried and true Scott Little Goose or little bitty goose. Simple easy to hook up and they work well.
Scott Hero is awesome. My kids use them. They don’t make it anymore for some reason. Can probably find one somewhere though.
3 Scott hero’s at my house. I liked my daughters’ so much I bought one for myself. Fits a kid well but will fit an adult with an average size wrist.
My middle daughter at 7 with a TBM group.
That’s a good looking draw length for a ten year old mule. Here’s my ten year old.
Mule power, If this 10 yr old is most likely to be a lifelong archer and hunter. I’d spend a little xtra on a release and buy a tension release like a carter evolution or silverback. Teach them proper technique early. Start with a simple rope trainer and migrate to the bow. Teach them good habits and that teaching will train them properly for a lifetime of accurate shooting. Good luck 2 u!
