The X-TENSION R/T is a wrist strap release that can be shot two ways: a PULL-THRU method or a RELAX TENSION method of activation!
*To Shoot as a PULL-THRU Style Release, begin by setting the X-Tension R/T five lbs over your holding weight at full draw. Simply draw the bow the thumb and index finger tension levers tightly depressed throughout the drawing of the bow. When full draw is achieved, remove pressure from the thumb and index finger tension levers and use back tension to pull through the shot. When you reach five pounds of tension above your bow's holding weight, the release will fire!
*For a RELAX TENSION Style Release, set the X-Tension R/T five lbs less than your holding weight at full draw. Simply draw the bow with the thumb and index finger tension levers tightly depressed throughout the drawing of the bow. When you are anchored and aiming at the targer, slowly relax pressure evenly on the thumb and index finger tension levers and the release will fire!
This release features an innovative design that will revolutionize release technology! Our patent-pending TriStar Hook System is a series of three hooks that rotate around a dowel pin so that after you fire, the next hook is ready for loading! It's ingenious!!!
To adjust the X-Tension R/T, we have also added a red ring at the base of the release head so that you can micro-adjust the amount of tension needed to fire the release. For best results, we recommend figuring out the draw weight of your bow divided by the let-off of the cams. For instance, if your bow is set at 60 lbs and your let-off is 65%, your firing point is 21 lbs. You can then use a draw weight indicator and pull against a piece of release rope to set your X-Tension R/T to 26 lbs if you want to use the Pull Through method or to 16 lbs if you want to use the Relax Tension method of activation. Then you can move over to your bow and draw with both index and finger tension levers depressed on your bow. You can then use the red adjustment ring to micro-adjust the amount of pull you want to maximize your shot! Turn the red ring clockwise (to a higher engraved number on the ring) for more tension. Adjustment is simple and quick!
