Low end price, great results.I recently purchased this quick release at the Academy in Auburn, Alabama. After buying my Bow, I was looking for a quick release to use. After spending more than my budget on my PSE Striker X, the Bow tech assisted me with some equipment I needed to be able to go shoot immediately after purchase. He was aware I was getting low on my funds and helped me pick out this quick release instead of trying to push me for a more expensive one. As he stated, if I wanted a more expensive one, I could always buy one later.This quick release falls on the lower end price range, but worked pretty good. After getting it adjusted to my liking, I was able to put great groupings together at 40 feet. I will probably buy a better one in the future, but I am happy with the way it feels upon release. And also, thanks to the young man's help in keeping my cost down, I WILL be shopping again at Academy.

ReasonableJust started bow fishing. This trigger doubled my hit rate. It performs as I expected. I think it is a great product and at this price I wouldn't buy anything more expensive.

As good as the ones costing 3X as much.I bought this Tru-Fire Patriot release because of the price. I am well pleased with this product after shooting over 600 arrows and counting. This release shoots as good as the releases costing 3 times as much.

What is the draw weight rating on this release? I shoot a 70lb draw bow and I wanna make sure it's going to handle it.
