The Back Strap is the perfect wrist strap style release for competitive target archers and hunters alike. Designed after the Evolution Series, this innovative resistance activated release is fired by pulling, not punching. This is a sure fire way to overcome buck fever and target panic. The Back Strap is specially designed for wrist strap shooters providing even less torque then hand held release aids and comes with the Scott Archery Buckle Strap. The trigger acts as a safety and not a firing pin. The safety is depressed during the draw cycle of the bow and then released at reaching full draw. Once in the valley relax the index finger off the safety and begin pulling and building pressure on the back wall of the cam until the release fires. For safely letting down the bow the trigger can again be depressed and held down while relaxing the bow to rest. This is the best concept for struggling archers that want to learn to push and pull until the shot fires.




The Revolution is an alternative to Carter’s top selling Evolution release aid. This release is a sure cure for target panic and will teach proper shot execution and back tension. The release activates from increasing resistance and not from rotation. The Revolution has a casing designed perfect for the archer preferring vertical handle without a hole. The safety has been relocated to the pinky for trouble-free drawing and letting-down of the bow. Like its predecessor, the Revolution utilizes an open jaw for easy loading and unloading of the release on a loop. Join the revolution against target panic and shoot Carter’s Revolution!



Attraction S

The all new Attraction from Carter Enterprises has once again raised the bar in mechanical release aids. In the past, mechanical release designs limited the shooter to deciding on one shooting style or the other. However, the Attraction gives the shooter the option for shooting either a pull tension activated release or a thumb trigger activated release all in one comfortable unit by simply adjusting one Allen head screw you can change the release from being pull tension activation to the thumb trigger activation release.



Evolution +

Available in 3 & 4 finger models. The Evolution is a resistance activated release and is the perfect release for teaching proper shot execution. The release will fire when you increase the resistance. To fire the release hold the safety down as you pull back. Then once you get into your valley and anchor in, let your thumb off the safety and begin pulling and building pressure on the back wall of the cam until the release fires. This is a perfect concept for struggling archers; learning to do nothing but push and pull until the shot fires. Evolve into the best shooter you can be with the new Evolution.




Designed after the sleek shape of the new improved Back Strap, this innovative resistance activated release shoots in the reverse order. Just draw to anchor, press the trigger and then just pull to activate. Your shot will fire as draw weight increases. No punching, no panic! To let down, release pressure on your index finger, engage safety with your middle finger and let down. Squeeze Me for your perfect shot.
