I flipped the moon on my Longhorn to the smooth click. I probably should have done this a year ago. For me the click was good tool learning the release and travel settings. I was shooting my Exxus well recently (obviously no click) so I took the click out of the Longhorn and set the travel a little colder than before. I really like it. How about it or no click?

No click for me. If I hear that click I jerk so hard that I pull the shot everytime. First time I heard that click I was at Bentons and Jeff witnessed me shooting the floor because it scared the crap out of me
judge if you want were all going to die i intend to deserve it

I've shot with both. I shoot with one now. But I use it for a consistency crutch. Shooting in the yard is different than being on the stake at a national level tournament. The nerves and tension is not found while shooting in the it's easy to relax and let the shot happen. At a big shoot, I am revved up and very tense. If I don't be careful, I will start to alter my form and everything by just being tense. Where the click comes in for me is that I've noticed with extra nerves and tension, I will get into the release a bit different and one of two things happen: I will either freeze up and not be able to pull through the shot. Or I will be so tense that I start drawing the release with more pressure on my other fingers and then have a premature release about the time I hit anchor. Without the click...This happened a lot. With the click...I know where I'm at. If it clicks too soon I can let down and get in the grip right. Otherwise, I will pull to the click after I hit anchor...but before I start the shot sequence. So there isn't any jumping when it goes off. I see a lot of guys start aiming then hit the click and it scares them and they start the shoot process all over again. I do it before I start aiming that way I know I have 10 or 6 thousandths between where I am and the bow firing. I still don't know when it's gonna go but it's a good crutch for high pressure situations for me right now.

^^^^* click for me as well . And like Crow it is part of my shot process .
I draw and come to anchor, I relax my release hand untill it comes to the click . Then I start looking at my intended target . I expand in the shot untill it fires while staring where I want to hit .

It really helps alot to keep your shot process the same , especially like Crow said in high pressure situations . Also it helps me when on unlevel terrain like uphill or downhill shots , it reassures me that my form and everything is correct during my process . So for me the click is needed when I'm shooting shots that aren't normal like out of a stand , uneven footing , uphill , downhill , etc.... It helps me alot .

Indoor I do not use a click because there aren't any of those crazy terrain changes .

I have shot with and without the click and now prefer no click! It takes considerable training and conditioning to shoot the click properly and not behave like Pavlov's dog!

When I did shoot a click, I would draw the bow and immeadiately go to the click AND ONLY then would I begin my aiming process! All clicks are not created equal such as the offerings from Stan that has a .06 and a .10 clicks for a variance in speed.

In my release pouch I sometimes have 2 identical releases set differently so that I my brain doesn't become lazy. At times I have had one release set with a click and another without the click.

I see great shots shoot with a click and without it! I'm a no click kind of guy!
If it goes BANG or Twang I'm into it! Fishing is something I do while waiting to go hunting! Predator by design, Southern by the Grace of God!
