Its dangerous Review by Angus Moss
Value
Quality
Price

This was an awesome release when I first got it but after I shot it for a while and I start slowly lessening the tention required activate the release I started getting misfires due to the center hinge technology on it. Once you get comfortable with this release you have to draw your bow back with one finger pretty much and the adjust your hand at full draw where you want it. It’s just not reliable for any type of light trigger. If there was a safety button I’d give it 14 out of the 15 stars.

Overlooked! Review by 3-D Quest
Quality

This release is one of TB’s finest and most overlooked simply because it was supposed to be a cure-all for hanging up but you still must execute the shot.

I’ll admit it’s a little tricky to shoot at first that’s why you should bag train with it before you go on the range... however, that’s true go r any release. This release is so versatile and there’s many ways you could shoot it you just have to work with it awhile and decide on the one that works best for you!

For me the best way is with the heavy spring in the three finger version using the click (I like the small peg to wrap my thumb around). I treat it like a thumb triggered release and I’ve learned to pull through the shot with back tension like it should be done using a trigger. I used to shoot my TB Blade (which is basically the same shape as the HBX), a thumb triggered release very light, but not any more! I don’t shoot it as heavy as my HBX (because I shoot it in windy conditions) but it’s fat compared to most ways I’ve shot it. Now I just pull through w/BT w/my thumb wrapped around the peg and wait for the shot to happen, instead of commanding the trigger!

You should try it and give it plenty of bag training time until it becomes a second nature shot process. It’s the most underrated release T. R. U. Ball makes!

Very well built, but a whole lot of travel Review by Justin

Quality

First off, I love Tru Ball. In my opinion they make the best hinge or back tension release on the market. That being said, I don’t like this release for my style of shooting. I got this release and it took way too long for it to go off. I adjusted it to its hottest setting and completely removed the spring, and still took me twice as long to go off than my BT Gold.
The way that I back tension is to squeeze my middle and ring finger. I thought this release would be great for that style, but it just took way too long for me to get it to go off. I knew after an hour of shooting that this was not the release for me.

Simply put, you will not find a more customizable release. I have been using the HBX for 6 mouth, to a single let down.

I like it. Very easy to activate. Review by Azo

I switched to hbx after having inconsistency issues with my hinge releases due to having to 'think' to 'rotate' the hinge to fire.

With hbx, i just pull using all three fingers including my thumb to activate it. This also eliminate the need to take my thumb off the thimb peg for it to fire like ordinary hinge release. I set it heavy to provide enough resistance for a surprise release.

How ever you shoot, this release will do it! Review by Robert Lee
Quality

I have been shooting the HBX for a few months now and I love it! I tried several different configurations and settled on no thumb peg, no clicker; just a smooth, straight pull to get the shot to break. No rotation, no thumb to engage or move (transition), nothing to think about but just pulling through the shot. Because there's no rotation, I never hang up by not relaxing my index finger. Very smooth and consistent each time, no problems with the release being hot or cold; it is very consistent.

The weight is great as well, heavy in the hand and the grooved grip is very good at not slipping during those hot, sweaty, Texas 3D shoots.

Watch the videos for easy set up, it is very different than most releases in setting the timing, clicker and speed. It's easy, but it is different.

If you're on the fence, go ahead and buy, you will not be disappointed.

A Good not A Great Release Review by Dben

I like the weight and feel of the HBX, and I have it working for me in an odd modified back tension thumb/finger release sort of way. However, it took some effort to get it to behave consistently inconsistent ( I hope that made sense). I'll explain that in detail shortly. It also took a lot of range time to figure out how the HBX liked to be shot and then to get use to it. This, I expected.

For the consistency statement, when I got the HBX I set the speed to what worked for me. However, after a number of weeks, I found I was constantly having to re-adjust the speed. I would make an adjustment, shoot a number of arrows, and the release would start getting slower. If I did not re-adjust, it would get to a point where it would not fire. I would repeat this until my patience wore out, then I would pull out my backup release (a Stan Jetblack).

I was very disappointed in the release and it was getting to the point where I was about to call TRU Ball and ask them politely to take there POS back, otherwise, it was going in the trash.

I had two things I hadn't tried yet. The first was easy and not very time consuming while the second was just the opposite. The second option involved a total disassembling of the release and jeweling most if not all of the parts. I opted for the first which consisted of using a light gun oil and oiling everything short of a complete dip. I then adjusted the speed and shot a bunch of arrows to work the oil into every nook-and-cranny. With that done, I used a liberal amount of synthetic gun cleaner and flushed out the oil. Then using the same light oil, I put a small drop at the pivot points and next to the sear. Note, I use the gun cleaner / oil every couple of months to clean the release so it doesn't get all gunked up.

Finally, I reset the speed and took it for a test drive. It has been shooting consistently inconsistent ever since. My release sequence is a process, and it works for me. It uses a combination of back-tension while squeezing the release. Is it weird, unorthodox, and anything you can think of... yes it is.

If I had to do it all over again, I would get an HBC or a Fulkrum.

I hope that helps.

Great release Review by GW

The most consistent release I've ever shot! I did not like this release at first, but after going through the different configurations, I found one that shoots unbelievably well. It's consistently smooth throughout the entire shot. No troubles with hanging up as with a hinge release. No worries about preload being perfect to pull through like a tension activated release. It seems to compensate for any inconsistencies I may have in setting up the shot. The end result is a very smooth consistent accurate shot that's repeatable time and time again despite my imperfections as a shooter.

Really Well Made Release Review by Andrew Boghosian

This release is a goid quality release. I have had this release for the past three weeks because I wanted to switch from a trigger release ( I was punching the trigger) to a back tension. So far, my accuracy has been improving. I took out the spring and it is better to me than with a spring. The only thing that I do not like is that there are too many different ways to shoot it. Overall, I love my new HBX.

Excellent release, but not for me Review by Target Shooter

Tried this release for a month and with many adjustment options, it gives you choices. But I do have to caution people from this release. It may not be for everyone. I would suggest if you know someone who has one, borrow it for a few days and then make up your mind. Quality of construction is excellent and works great. But it does take some getting used to.
