    For those who have shot a release for several years and attempted to go back to a pull trigger at trapshooting were you successful and was it worth the effort? Thanks again.

    I shoot either one with no trouble at all. It just takes a little concentration.

    I myself, couldn't do it. I know a few others that try and have the dreaded flinches back. I do know of one shooter that after quite some time shooting the release went back to a pull. I am not sure what he is shooting at this time.

    I think that it will depend solely on you.

    Funny that you should bring this up--I just went through that. I was shooting too fast with the release (my scores were inconsistent) so I switched back to a pull. That lasted little more than a week--I went back to the release because I was flinching 2-3 times per round. After I switched back to the release, I felt relieved. The difference now is that I have begun to set the release with a strong pull. That has helped me control my shooting slightly.

    I rarely have flinches now, and my scores have improved within a matter of days. In my case, switching to a pull was a failed experiment.

    Stick to the release if you have a problem flinching.
