(4/26/11) The review for TRU Ball’s Diamond Xtreme was left for us by Arren D. Thanks for another review.
Initial thoughts: I had never shot anything other than a strapped trigger release so this thumb release is a little different. The Xtreme fits the hand nicely and makes no noise when the trigger is activated. Colors you can purchase this in are black and camouflaged, I opted for the black.
Noise: As I stated earlier the there is not any noise on release. I shot hundreds of arrows and the release never made a sound.
Fit and Feel: Moving from a strap to a hand release such as this is a major change to shooting. The strap assists with the pull of the bow, so you must get used to your hands holding this weight. The one small problem I found was my middle finger gets worn on the knuckle from a small area on the release. I now have a callus from shooting this release. The fit is nice, I have larger hands and have no issues with holding this release.
Accuracy: I noticed my groups got tighter immediately. This release really stops you from punching the trigger as your thumb does not have the sensitivity of your index finger. I had to stop shooting groups due to fletching and FOB losses.
Overall: I would give this release 4.5/5 stars. Again, the only reasons to drop this from a 5 are the price which is relatively expensive for a release, and the area that wore a callus into my middle finger.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this release to anyone looking for a new way of shooting.
