Tru-Fire 360 Release Review

Bowhunting is rarely easy. The archer has to locate their quarry, get within range and then make the shot under whatever circumstances exist. Those practicing this art embrace the challenge, but we don't want to set ourselves up for failure, either. Equipment that adapts to personal preference or helps overcome a difficult situation is a big plus. Tru-Fire's 360° Release is precisely that kind of gear. This review focuses on the "360 Buckle Foldback," short body design in camo colors.


Tru-Fire's 360 Buckle Foldback wrist release, MSRP $69.99.

Fond du Lac, Wisconsin based Tru-Fire ( www.trufire.com ) was founded in 1984 by Lynn Tentler and his wife, Judi. The organization remains family owned and operated with son, Steve, and his wife, Cheri, now in charge. Release aids are the core of their business, and Steve estimates the company's market share at 40-50%. Tru-Fire products have always been American made. Components not manufactured on site come from suppliers in the area. This gives Tru-Fire an exceptional level of quality control, and they follow-up by brutally testing all release prototypes on custom machinery that applies 300 pounds of draw force over 18,000 cycles in 24 hours. Their products carry a lifetime guarantee, but less than .3% of the 5,000,000 Tru-Fire releases sold have been returned for warranty coverage. What all this means is reliability, pure and simple.

New for 2008, the 360 Release line of wrist strap release aides includes four models offering various features, the most significant being its' namesake characteristic: The caliper rotates all the way around the long axis of the trigger housing. This is a free floating movement, and there's no binding under load. Other manufacturers claim 360 degrees of rotation, but Tru-Fire points out that this occurs with the jaws at a fixed position relative to the trigger. Is it an important distinction? You'd better believe it. The 360 Release offers an exclusive parameter of adjustability the archer can utilize actively or passively.


360 degrees of rotation at the caliper accommodates a wide range of shooting styles.

On the practice range, archers frequently experiment with their technique to find out what works best for them. A dynamic link between the caliper and the firing mechanism means either hand position or trigger location may be modified, alone (more later on trigger orientation and adjustment). Would a back of the hand to cheek anchor be better than palm down with a thumb knuckle under the ear lobe? Just turn your hand and find out- nothing else had to be altered. The 360 Release provides a more broad range of options for anyone dissatisfied with their present shooting technique. If the user desires, a set screw opposite the trigger allows the caliper to be locked tightly into place.

The benefits of a rotating caliper become even more obvious in the field. Many a bowhunter has had to let-down or pass on a shot because an obstacle prevented them from getting in...
