I have been using a T-handle release since going from fingers to release The one I use now is made by Tru-ball spendy but very dependable. With the a T-handle your still using three fingers to draw with and you trigger with the thumb. The biggest advantage to me is being able to leave the release on the string( I use an Ultra nock on the string.) I did end up with an inch or so less draw length and a slightly lower anchor point.

i shot a winn free flight a few years ago. It was a nice shooting release, but It had a little more trigger travel than i would have liked. I also had a hard time finding a solid ancher with it. I gave it to a friend, and he loves it. he has been useing it for 3 years. If you can, find someone who has one and try it first. I think they also make 2 different heads, 1 you pull the trigger to release it, and the other you hold the trigger and release it when you want to fire, it would probly work good for the transition between fingers and release. hope this helps a little

I have had my Wynn release for 5 years now and no complaints other than when the deer is walking down the trail toward me at a good pace and I am fumbling trying to get the release to lock on my string loop. I know I could eliminate that problem by not having a string loop but I like the fact that I don't have to replace my string as often. They are great for people who want more draw length because the head is so short and I find it to be more consistent on the anchor point than other releases. It also allows me to pull back a few more pounds because it straps to your wrist and has a palm grip.

I use a light glove under it on cold days. I have a camo muff that attaches to my waist and I have a hand warmer inside it to keep my fingers warm.

I shot the free flight for quite a few years when I just stared out. I have since moved on, but it was a very good release. I now shoot a scott for hunting and a Carter for target.(I actually have about 5 different releases for target, a couple of back tension no trigger releases, but I tend to go back to the carter.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
