GREAT RELEASE Review by kshunter88

Can't say enough about this release. Feels great in the hand, very crisp release, and highly adjustable. I previously used a Stan Shootoff and thought it was good release, but just a little uncomfortable. The SX3 Heavy Metal couldn't be any more comfortable. While i didn't have a chance to shoot the regular SX3 to compare, i am very glad i went with the Heavy Metal option. If you are on the fence, do yourself a favor and take the jump.

A very high-quality product Review by Abu Kevin

This is my first hand-held release. I am delighted with the overall quality of construction, and the heavy-metal aspect (having some real heft to it) is a great thing. I chose large based on other reviews. At first, I thought it may be slightly too large, but after using it, I am very happy I chose the large size. I also chose the trio version rather than the 4-finger one. The trio version has the little tab for the pinky finger, and it works wonderfully well. Overall, extremely comfortable and highly adjustable. I really love this release. It is pricey, but well worth the money.

One for me now! Review by SkipDaddy

I previously purchased the Stan SX3 aluminum for myself in a Medium and thoroughly enjoyed it. When it came time for my daughter to move up to a thumb button, I bought myself the Stan SX3 heavy metal in a Large.

The weight is quite a bit heavier than the original, but I got used to it rather quickly. I was also glad I moved up to the Large and it feels more comfortable. Its not that the Medium was too small for me, but the Large is a little more comfortable.

Stan makes really nice products and the craftsmanship is fantastic. I highly recommend the SX3 for its ease of operation, high adjustability and great quality. If you can get past spending $259.95 for a release, you will fall in love with the operation.

Sweet Review by Eric Grant

I believe I have shot them all. However this one fits my hand like a glove. The additional weight helps to stabilize your shot for tighter groups. Thinking of purchasing a second one for a back up. The best release I've ever shot. Would highly recommend this release to everyone.

As good as it gets Review by JSong

I shot many trigger releases and as far as trigger release goes, nothing so far has compared to this release. If you want the best possible release, don't waste time or money playing around with others out there. Nothing compares to the Stan in crispness and accuracy.

I also shoot between Medium and Large and find the Large on Stan to be just right size. The way Stan release is built, many people I shoot with including myself tend to go size higher. It seems to give more room and just feels more comfortable over time.

The trainer lock is also very nice. I use it a lot to practice without an arrow just pulling my bow back and seeing where the proper release points are with the bow at the poundage I would be shooting at. Allows me to practice my endurance and aiming.

Awesome release. Enjoy.

Button Releases Review by Rob
Quality
Price
Value

I've been using the incredible by TruBall for a couple years and love it. I wanted to check out some other button releases that I could use like a hinge or Backtension so I ordered the Abyss Large and then the Heavy Metal by Stan because they are made out of brass. I currently use the Stan HM because of the following:
Trigger tuning; button can move any way and has an option to get a very large thumb trigger where as TruBall only has the 1/4''. Also, you can get sears and tension crisper and lighter then any release out there.
Weight. love having more weight because it feels better than something light.
Pulling. The release feels great when pulling back and at anchor point; You can pull hard and or just chill making this release the most comfortable and confident for me. Plus the training pin option works great.

Where have you been all my life? Review by Longhairedcountryboy

I never thought I'd pay that much for a release. I have always wanted to switch over to this style release but just didn't want to fork over the cash for it. I should have done this a long time ago. I love everything about this release. STAN has the best feeling, smoothest operating release that I have picked up yet. I was complaining about the cost of this release. Since I have gotten it and been shooting it the last couple weeks, I can tell you for certain that I would not sell it back to you for the same price I paid for it. That alone tells you that I am a very satisfied customer. Thanks also to Lancaster Archery Supply for always carrying such awesome products! You all are a joy to deal with.

Almost perfect Review by Tim

Been shooting JetBlack and HT for about 2 years. This is my first button release. I'm in awe of how my much my x-count increased. Extremely accurate release by comparison. In my opinion STAN nailed it with the nickel plated copper. The release feels really nice in the hand and seems to aim just a touch better. The black nickel plating provides a unique smoked glass/titanium look (couldn't think of a better way to describe the look). It would be awesome if STAN would develop a hinge with the same handle as the SX3 (and remove the sharp corner of the MOREX sear so it won't cut the cheeks on those of us that have chubby cheeks).

Great release Review by BWar

I agree the price is steep but as with most things, you get what you pay for. I've been using this release for indoor league and I cringe at the thought of using a wrist trigger again. For any rifle shooters that know, the difference is like shooting a factory trigger next to a Jewell. It can be set as heavy or as light as you prefer- when set light it's reliable and there's no creep or over travel.
If you do get it, it would be a good idea to take the trainer lock out and keep it somewhere safe otherwise there's a good chance it'll unscrew itself and you'll end up losing it like I did.

I shot the Stan sx3 for a year and loved it always thought it was a touch light for me but hard to find a release that's more crisp that a Stan. This release came out and I had to try it just felt like the weight along with the Stan quality would be a dream and I wasn't wrong. I absolutely love it. A touch high at $250 but I'm sure like anything else it will come down in a couple months.
