The QuickFire was developed as a way of allowing archers and slingshot shooters to use a non- traditional release in lieu of a standard mechanical release. The QuickFire allows the shooter a new alternative for a controlled release that is light weight, super strong and low cost. We are confident in the QuickFires ability to handle most shooting scenarios rather it is archers or slingshot in nature. The QuickFire can be used as your primary release or as a backup do to failure of your primary release. First time using the “QuickFire” release... As with all archers release’s, rather mechanical or as with the “QuickFire” a non-mechanical release, never pull back directly at your face. Always perform several test pulls and releases (not dry firing) at ever increasing length of draw in order to get a feel for the release. The “QuickFire” has been tested to 90#’s in a static test and 55#’s in field testing on the Chief AJ HFX Grizzly model. Enjoy and always wear safety glasses in any shooting sport.
