- Loose screw Review by Tom K.
Price Value Quality
I was very disappointed by this release. I bought the thumb release max 4 with 360 degree head along with the hand strap. I broke down and decided to give thumb release a try. First off all, don't waste your money on the strap you don't need it, handle alone does the job. My general impression of the max 4 was good, solid, felt good in my hand but after 20 arrows through it I changed my opinion 360 degrees, pun intended. I loved the thumb release but the max 4 had one major flaw-the adjustability screw kept unscrewing itself with each shot, after about 20 arrows through it, I had to screw it back in just so it would function again. I put another 30 arrows through it and again same problem!!!! Unfortunately I will be returning this product. If you're a hunter you do not want to have head aches and frustrations in the woods from one tiny tiny loose screw that could have HUGE impact on your hunt.

- Heavy - Just okay first release - found better Review by Mark Finkenstaedt
Quality Price Value
I started with this release but in comparison to the T.r.u. ball T release (Item # 4530061
) it's a beast! The T is much lighter trigger and the release action is almost instinctive. After using the T for months now I found the Max 4 incredibly heavy and unresponsive and shot wildly with it. You can't customize the weight of the release enough (it's like a 15 lb trigger on a gun you love unadjustable trigger and a 3 lb break is just a dream!). Max 4 is a comfortable release in the hand with a beast of a trigger in comparison to others. Even my wife is now sharing the T handle - guess I have a Max 4 for sale and a new T to get.
Use lock-tite or you'll lose that screw in the thumb trigger which is a beast to find in the field.
Needs a better spring inside to make it great. Hope that helps.

- TRU ball max pro 4 Review by DRiffle09
Quality Price Value
This was my first T handle style release, I like the way it feels and the fact that I dont have a strap pulling the skin on my wrist when draw my bow or holding at full draw. Plus a wrist strap release leaves the neck an jaws hanging while in a stand and if you have ever used a set of rattling horns you know that the release can and will smack off the horns and arm rests, you dont have that with this release and its not just a hook it has closing jaws which is nice because while in the stand you can hang your bow up and lock this release on your d loop and its out of the way while calling or just repositioning things while in the stand. But the reasoning for only a 4 out of 5 rating when I was adjusting the sensitivity screw I noticed that it can go so light that the release will fire off while drawing the bow back, just make sure after tinkering with the screw hook it on your bow and start to draw back very slowly if its too light it will fire off within the first 6-8 inches of movement if so tighten it up and try again but other than that this release is great I never had any other problems such as screws coming loose or anything like that and the price is not that bad compared to some others like it

- T.R.U. Ball Max 4 Pro Release Review by Eugene D. Bell
Price Value Quality
I shoot a hoyt carbon element at 60 lb draw, and since I started using this release my shot groups keep getting tighter and tighter. Takes a little getting used to the T handle with the thumb release...I will probably never go back to a wrist strap release. Plus my shoulder ain't in the greatest shape, so having the T handle I can pull with my bicep to take some of the pressure and fatigue off my shoulder...it is also nice to have a set screw to adjust the sensitivity of the thumb release...AWESOME product

Value Quality Price
it might be a little pricey i have a Mathews menace i pull about 35 pounds and this is my first t-handle the set screw will go loose is you don't put lock tite in it i dropped it once and it would not work i put lock tite in it and i haven't had a problem since if you put less tension on it it could be a back tension because the jaws become farther apart when the button is not on
