Review: TruGlo’s Nitrus Release Is a Good Fit


The release of the bowstring is the most critical element in archery. You can do everything 100% correct, yet if you screw up the release, you’ll miss. Inconsistent releases of the string with the use of one’s fingers has caused many an archer to rely on release aides.

One such tool is TruGlo’s Nitrus, and it’s a good one. Nitrus is a combination of a crisp trigger, solid clamping jaws, and the unique BOA release system. The strap is a soft fleece-like fabric in Realtree camo (so it won’t blow your concealment system) which feels comfortable on your wrist. Even though the trigger is adjustable, I found that it came perfectly adjusted for my taste on the first shot. Finally, the BOA locking system allows you to adjust the strap as loosely or tightly as you wish, with no buckles to fumble with. It goes on with a twist and off with a snap. Here are the features of the new product:
