Hot Shot Manufacturing Makes Big Addition to Index Finger Release Line with the New Nano Release

Logan, UT- The engineers at Hot Shot Manufacturing knew the archery community would be impressed with their initial releases - 18 months of research and development would instill that level of confidence in anyone. But, after their original 2010 product launch and subsequent offering in 2011, those same engineers have not slackened their efforts to ride the wave of popularity associated with their brand. Moving ahead on their path of ingenuity and innovation, Hot Shot Manufacturing is proud to offer the new-for-2012 Nano, a smaller-than-average, but highly accurate index finger release aid.

The current trend in the archery industry is to go smaller and lighter while maintaining quality. This is evident in products throughout the market and the reason for this collective shift is because bowhunters and target archers simply demand it. Who doesn't want less metal to clank on treestands and less weight to lug through the elk mountains? The Nano addresses meets these demands while performing as hardcore archers would expect.

Loaded with shooter-friendly features the release head of the Nano is a full 30-percent smaller than Hot's Shot's flagship index finger release, the Infinity. By trimming the fat the Nano results in a compact, user friendly design that's not only aesthetically pleasing, that's also less obtrusive in the field. Using Hot Shots "Lever-Link" trigger the Nano affords less trigger creep for a crisp shot and precise trigger pull upon every shot. This stronger and more reliable actuating mechanism features less friction than traditional roller bearings and provides little opportunity for dirt and debris to enter the release and affect function. As with all Hot Shot index finger release aids the trigger and internal components are comprised of a proprietary alloy that is essentially "self lubricating", a feature that further promotes ultra-smooth function from this micro-masterpiece. Don't let a small name fool you into thinking the this release lacks top end characteristics. The Nano's trigger tension and travel is easily adjustable by way of a single allen-head set screws. For those moments that necessitate a speedy hookup with precise string alignment the Nano features Hot Shot's Cat's Eye hook that ensures you can get on your string without complication at the moment of truth. An improved nylon tether system utilizes Hot Shot's new and improved synch-plate system that eliminates release head slippage and promotes greater ability to adjust your releases distance to your exact specification and position. Bolstering three strap options - Black Leather Buckle, Lost Camo Buckle, and Black Leather Velcro the Nano is versatile in it's fit and function with an option to suit any bowhunter out there. This release may be small but it's performance is big and ready to prove itself in the field this season.

Bowsite Notes:

These releases are to archery what a custom match trigger is to competitive rifle shooting, yet at a very reasonable price. These releases are made to produce a crisp, consistent, and extremely precise adjustable release which is critical to improving accuracy. I own several and I love them.
