Scott Archery Silverhorn Bow Release
Worst customer service EVER!
The trigger is very sensitive. Depending on your preferences, that could be a positive or negative. The design causes string torque and therefore, inconsistent shots. The strap is weak and needed replaced in about six months. The strap creeps up my hand and digs in. Scott archery customer service is the worst I've ever had to deal with. It took me two weeks, nine phone calls, five messages and three people I've spoken with (eventually) and I still haven't got an answer either way if they will replace the strap. At this point, even if they do replace the strap under waranty or at cost, there's no way I'll get it in time for opening day.

I've been using this release for several season now. I love the single hook design. Release is smooth and easy to hook up. I like the buckle strap as opposed to velcro. It is quieter and you know it's exactly the same every time you strap it on. Do not hesitate to buy this release.

Very Good Release
I felt I had to write this review after reading Doefordinner's review. First off, if someone has a problem working this release, you should probably shoot fingers instead. This release doesn't cause string torque. It's actually easier on the D loop than a regular caliper release. The sensitivity is adjustable. Now, I prefer this release over many that cost $30-$50 more. I just can't justify the cost difference. This Scott Silverhorn release is made very well and I've had no problems with mine in the 2 years I've had it. (Well over 1000 shots) The strap hasn't moved at all and appears to have not stretched either. If you're alittle hesitant of a release of this style thinking that the D loop will slip out ... well that isn't happening unless you really mess up! That was one of my concerns with this as it was my first release that wasn't a full caliper release, but it wasn't long that I figured out this isn't going to slip off at all. It's super smooth, easy to get use to, makes for a quicker hook up to the D loop AND it can be hooked without even looking if you practice with it. As far as I'm concerned, it's a very nice release and I can't think of anything negative about it. If you haven't had the chance to use one of these releases, please do and decide for yourself if it's for you. I honestly get more consistent shots using this release. I think it has to do more with the overall comfort honestly. Other releases I've used have been somewhat unreliable and others were hard to get a real consistent release point with. (I will admit that those releases I speak of were also in the $50 or less price range) Is this the best release on the market?? No, of course not, but like I stated before, it IS as good as releases costing more so it's definitely one to consider.
