T.R.U. Ball HBX Signature Series Release

It’s here, and Lancaster Archery Supply, Inc., has it. TechXPert Justus Leimbach reviews the new, T.R.U. Ball HBX Signature Series release. Pro shooter Reo Wilde helped T.R.U. Ball design this unique release, and the first time he used it in competition in May 2015, he broke his own world record score of a 150 with 10Xs, when he shot a 150 with 12Xs.

What makes this release unique is it can be activated five different ways. Steadily increase pressure with the middle and ring fingers, while also increasing back tension. This is how Reo uses the release.

Next is the transfer tension method, where the archer relaxes the forefinger and wrist, while increasing back tension to allow the release to pivot on the forefinger.

Then there’s the tension-only method, where the archer simply increases pressure evenly, by pulling straight back with all three fingers.

To activate the release by thumb, the archer increases pressure on the thumb peg.

Finally, the release can be triggered by maintaining thumb contact with the thumb peg, while increasing pressure with the ring finger.

Leimbach walks through the various adjustments that can be made to the release by changing springs and removing or adding a clicker function.
