    I learned to hunt and use a recurve bow,
    draw and release were instinctive maneuvers, like throwing a rock,
    so a string release was never an option,
    or thought of back when I started, archery hunting.
    but now things are different
    theres a couple hundred different designs and you can certainly find a few you favor over others,
    but what is your favorite and WHY?
    prices and quality vary wildly

    I don't know about you guys ,
    but once you get up over about 65 lbs in bow pound rated pull,
    even a compound bow with its relaxed pull at full draw benefits,
    through use of a string release aid,
    as your fingers don,t like the long term repeated abuse,
    of direct string release when you use or are pulling a bow,
    like my 87 lb 31" draw compound repeatedly,
    over many dozens of shots day after day, while practicing.
    Use of a decent quality arrow release aids in getting consistent results

    BTW GET AND USE A DECENT ARM GUARD ITS SAVES A GREAT DEAL OF POTENTIAL ARM ABUSE{campaignId}&ad_cid=5c6e593df1b5962977d4c65b&ad_cc=US&ad_curr=USD&ad_price=34.00&campaign_id=7203534630&guest=true&gclid=Cj0KCQjwnqH7BRDdARIsACTSAdtTdDG5I2UU_EWKzA1HEjiBedgDyo_Vpl9_LPEKEnZiqG7EufsXLsAaAnvfEALw_wcB&share=web

    personally I favor something like this

    there are plenty of options
