So I decided to give the thumb release a try and see if I like it any better than the standard wrist-strap style release I've been using my entire life. Ultimately I'd like to get rid of the issues I have with clunking my release into my sticks/stands when I climb, having to take it on/off as I add or remove layers of clothing, and recently clunking it into my camera/camera arm while self filming. So I picked up a new Tru-Fire Edge 4 finger release and gave it a a whirl last night. First impressions - this is going to take some getting used to! Definitely a much different feeling both during the draw as well as at full draw. I'm not sure if I like it better or not, but I'm going to give it a while before I pass my final judgement. In any case, one thing I struggled with a bit is where to hold/position my thumb while drawing. My natural tendency is to put it over the trigger and rest is on the side of the release. However that can cause some premature shot discharge if you accidentally move your thumb or put pressure on the trigger while drawing. Not good. So I stared putting my thumb behind the trigger itself, much like I would do while drawing my wrist-strap release. Definitely safer, but it doesn't feel comfortable or natural. So for those of you shooting thumb-trigger releases - what do you do?
