    The Carter Honey 2 has a safety (either press or Evolution style). There is one I had which could be swapped between hinge and thumb trigger but I can't for the life of my remember what it was called.

    On the subject of variability in resistance activated releases, I've always been less than convinced by this argument. Every time I've tested mine on a scale, it's been consistent in its trigger point. It's more likely, in my opinion, that my form was inconsistent so different muscle groups were in play and I wasn't applying the correct pressure.

    This increases the friction on the half moon and increases the rotation needed to activate the release and becomes too inconsistent.
    Hi Kid Curry.
    I don't understand why it should require further rotation. Is it something to do with the increase in force causing a bigger overlap at the seer?

    My first and only release is the Carter ONLY (no pun intended!), this uses a thumb peg to keep the release "safe". If anything it taught me how to maintain my draw hand without twisting the release during the draw

    Thanks HH. Yes I think you are right. The variance does come from the point up until the safety is released not being the same. Be that anchor point, hand angle or how hard you are pulling into the wall

    I think the resistance activated releases are a great idea, you have to keep pulling or nothing happens.I see them as an equivalent to a recurve clicker. They require the archer to keep pulling, too.
    The two tools can have similar effects on their respective operators; they think they are pulling even when the tool tells them otherwise.
