Carter has yet again rocked the archery industry with their brand new releases showcased at the 2014 ATA show. This years line-up features an upgraded model of the Honey, a brand new hinged back tension release, and a simple back tension spike style release designed just for kids.
Based off of last year’s “Honey” release, Carter took their ever popular back tension release and added a couple new cool features to make the new “Honey 2”. From looking at the release the first thing you can see is the finger grooves have been removed to make this release universal to almost any hand for a comfortable fit. The Honey 2 also has the ability to make the safety let off automatically or manually. On automatic the safety is taken off when you release tension from your thumb after coming to full draw. The automatic feature can be deactivated by backing out a screw on the safety mechanism which requires you to “click” the safety off with your thumb after anchoring your shot before being able to release by backtension.
Another back tension release called the “Total Control” is also new this year. This back tension release is a hinge release, but without a safety. The moon system has been reconfigured to allow the user to infinitely adjust both the clicker and speed separately giving you total control of how the release will feel on the shot. There are positioning references cut into the hinge to allow you to see exactly how the release is set and allows for more precise setup. The Total Control has a sleek design and fits comfortably in the hand.
Carter also showcased their new line of back tension releases specifically tailored for the younger archer, known as the “Fair Chase”. These releases come in two sizes with the small being for kids around 7 years old, and the large being for kids around 10 years old. This release features a non-mechanical spike head that will teach your kids proper back tension execution from an early age.
The new “Honey 2” and “Total Control” will retail for $148 and will give you the latest and greatest release guaranteed to be reliable and dependable for many seasons to come. To get more information on these releases you can visit http://www.carterenterprises.com/.
