    I take it your new to using a hand held release?......They are all slightly diffident in form and feel....not to mention diffident
    types/style of hooks and jaws....

    You might want to head over to a pro shop that a decent selection and try a few.... They tend to be pricey so if you can avaoid buying something that you dont like you can save some money in the long run....
    Yes I'm new to handheld releases. Last Saturday I was at the pro shop and I held one and I liked the feel but never shot it.

    In regard to adjustment, the FND/SNS and the WhipperSnapper are virtually Identical. There are really two functional differences between these releases.




    1. The jaw on the Whipper Snapper automatically locks when you cock the trigger, where as the SNS/FND requires you to manually close/lock it after cocking the trigger.




    2. The other main difference is the length of the neck. The neck on the Whipper Snapper is about 1/2" longer than the SNS/FND.




    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    I got the whipper snapper 3 finger on order open loop. Don't mean to insult your intelligence but talking to them they said open loop is better for spot and stalk and closed is better for blinds and tree stands.

    Theyre on 2-3 week backorder from the manufacturer.

    Also bought Tommy Hogg 5 pin wrapped.

    No I don't take it as an insult to my intelligence. I appreciate all the help. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to handheld releases. I am mostly blind and tree stand so I will go to the shop and try some out

    Yeah I actually did get it. I also got open loop. On the FND I noticed the open loop has more of a curve in the little hook as opposed to the straighter one on the whippet snapper. I haven't had any problems with it coming off accidentaly

    My d loop came off the release twice. I lost an arrow both times = ( -$20 Im down to 10 arrows. How do you deal with the trigger almost hitting your face as you draw back? I think my DL needs to go down to 26.5 from 27, think this could be the issue?

    How are you shooting the release ? Should be rotating you hand as you draw. Most people will shoot a longer draw with a t handle then a shorter draw so there anchor stays the same

    If I rotate my hand, the release slips. Its an open release not closed, do you have a closed one? I am thinking about returning mine and getting a closed.
