Best Bow Release For Big Hands Reviews

TruFire Patriot Archery Compound Bow Release

This is one of the more affordable bow releases on the market right now, and although it is affordable, it’s still a high-quality item.

Review

The TruFire Patriot Archery Compound Bow Release, is made in the US, something many people appreciate, because that’s usually a sign of a high level of quality. It is designed to be highly durable, as can be seen by the various steel components. The TruFire Patriot Archery Compound Bow Release has been tested to last over 200,000 cycles at 200 pounds.

There is also the fact that the nylon wrist strap is about as durable as can be. The wrist strap is fully adjustable for size, and yes, it is ideal for people with large hands. It’s extremely adjustable and should be able to fit most hand sizes. What’s also pretty neat about this bow release is that it is ambidextrous, so both left- and right-handed people can use it.

What also stands out about this TruFire Patriot Archery Compound Bow Release is that the trigger is adjustable for sensitivity, so you can make it more or less sensitive, although it has been known to be a bit on the sensitive side. All in all, for the low price which this bow release comes at, it’s one of the better ones out there.

Scott Archery Little Goose Release-Buckle Strap

This is a much more expensive bow release which costs quite a bit more than the one we just looked at, although it is an extremely durable and uniquely designed piece.

Review

The Scott Archery Little Goose Release-Buckle Strap has a few great features worth mentioning. For one, it has a one-piece trigger design, and the benefit is that it greatly helps increase draw length, so you can get as much power and distance out of each shot as possible. The Scott Archery Little Goose Release-Buckle Strap also features an angled jaw design to ensure maximum string clearance, so the string never gets caught up and in the way of your shot.

In terms of overall quality and durability, the single caliper design  brings a lot to the table. In terms of toughness, it is one of the most durable bow releases you can get your hands on right now. It’s made with some very high-quality materials designed to last for a few hundred thousand shots at least. We appreciate how there is a fully adjustable nylon strap with a 5-pin design, so you can get the exact fit that is right for you.

You may be able to use it with big hands, but this is the smaller version of the original goose strap, so it is not exactly made for the largest of hands. Although, realistically, if you are not a giant, you should be able to use it just fine.

At the end of the day, the Scott Archery Little Goose Release-Buckle Strap is one of the most durable, easy to use, and comfortable bow releases available. It might be a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

PROS

  • check
    Maximum draw length
  • check
    Great string clearance
  • check
    Comfortable and adjustable
  • check
    Superior durability 
  • check
    Single caliper design

CONS

  • A bit expensive

Tru-Fire Hardcore Buckle Foldback MAX

This is the most expensive item on our list so far, and it comes to us from the Tru-Fire brand, just like the first bow release reviewed today. More or less, this is an upgraded version of that one.

Review

The Tru-Fire Hardcore Buckle Foldback MAX has to be one of the most comfortable bow releases out there right now. When it comes to the best model for large hands, we think that this might just be it. The strap is made to be very wide, so it can fit some very large hands.

Moreover, it is also highly adjustable to suit many different sizes, but especially larger hands. The Tru-Fire Hardcore Buckle Foldback MAX also comes with almost 3 times as much padding as most other options, making it very soft and plush so it doesn’t hurt your wrist or irritate your skin.

The Tru-Fire Hardcore Buckle Foldback MAX is 100% made in the US,  it is made with some of the best and highest-quality materials around. It should easily be able to last 300,000 cycles and 200 pounds; that’s how durable it is.

Everything is made with care and designed for the serious archer. Something which stands out about this item is that the pressure is highly adjustable; you can adjust the trigger to release with as little as 3 ounces or as much as 16 ounces of pressure.

PROS

  • check
    Highly adjustable pressure
  • check
    Superior comfort
  • check
    Adjustable fit
  • check
    Great for large hands
  • check
    Super high quality design

CONS

  • Quite expensive 
  • Makes a slight clicking noise at times

Spot Hogg Wiseguy Release Buckle

This is an extremely unique bow release to go with. It is fine for large hands, but the really special aspect has to be its adjustable length. Keep in mind that the Spot Hogg Wiseguy Release Buckle is not cheap, but it has one killer feature that makes it an investment worth considering.

Review

To get right to that feature we were talking about, the Spot Hogg Wiseguy Release Buckle is adjustable in length. You can adjust how far up or down the shaft the trigger is, or in other words, this bow release allows you to adjust the draw length. It’s a truly awesome feature because it allows you to alter the distance, speed, and power of the arrow being fired, and that’s a pretty big deal.

We also want to mention that the Spot Hogg Wiseguy Release Buckle is made in the US, and yes, high-quality materials were used to build it. The leather wrist strap is totally waterproof and about as durable as it gets. Now, it’s not the softest wrist strap, so it might cause slight skin irritation, but on the other hand, it is fully adjustable for size and should work fine for large hands.

Moreover, the Spot Hogg Wiseguy Release Buckle has a forward trigger design, something that helps increase draw length even more. The trigger is adjustable for sensitivity, another bonus, plus it’s a self-reloading trigger as well. This item may be super expensive, but it has some killer features that make it a great item.

PROS

  • check
    Adjustable trigger pressure
  • check
    Adjustable length
  • check
    Ideal for maximum draw length
  • check
    Ideal for most hand sizes
  • check
    Superior durability

CONS

  • Not overly comfortable

Tru-Fire Hardcore 4 Finger Revolution Archery Release

This is a unique option compared to all the others on today’s list. Whereas all other bow releases today were index finger releases, this one is a thumb release, and yes, it is ideal for big hands.

Review

So, this is a thumb-activated bow release. Now, whether you find an index finger release or thumb release more comfortable is totally a matter of preference. However, that said, thumb-activated bow releases tend to be fairly well-suited for people with larger hands. That said, it’s not like you can adjust this item for size for a better fit. It’s a one size fits all kind of thing, which can be good or bad.

The thumb trigger is very easy to use and simple to get the hang of. Now, we did say that this item is not adjustable for size, but the trigger can be adjusted to 16 different positions, so you can adjust how much pressure you need to apply to release.

What is nice about the Tru-Fire Hardcore 4 Finger Revolution Archery Release is that it can be used by both left- and right-handed people. What’s pretty neat as well is the 11 ball bearing design which means that it can rotate a full 360 degrees.

The other thing we would like to mention about the Tru-Fire Hardcore 4 Finger Revolution Archery Release is that it is made out of solid CNC machined aluminum, and it is made in the US, so we are confident that this is a durable item.

PROS

  • check
    Extremely durable
  • check
    Adjustable trigger position
  • check
    Ideal for most hand sizes
  • check
    Super simple to use
  • check
    360-degree rotation

CONS

  • One of the most expensive options out there
  • Not ideal for people who don’t like thumb releases

FINAL VERDICT

When all is said and done, we would recommend a mid-range option, something with a high level of quality that is not overly expensive. We would say that the best value for your money, with the best features, comes with the Tru-Fire Hardcore Buckle Foldback MAX.
