You have seen him on numerous television shows and DVD series, various advertisements and co-host of the popular North American Whitetail TV; Stan Potts is a household name among whitetail enthusiasts and big game hunters alike. For the better part of the last 40 years this outdoor icon has traveled the globe in search of trophy animals all while doing so with what he refers to as "that little red release" faithfully suspended from his bow string. In late 2011 Hot Shot released the Stan Potts Signature Series release aid - a little red release on steroids. If you have never met Stan Potts, you are missing out. He is as humble and as down to earth as they come. So when he puts his name on a product you know it is just not a marketing ploy or a way to make a few extra bucks, it is because he truly believes in and uses the product.
Equally suited for the wood lot or target range, the Stan Potts Signature Series is available in three- and four-finger models with single-screw adjustment for trigger travel and trigger tension, while a multiple axis thumb post allows boundless projection, tilt and distance adjustment equaling an exact-fit for any hand size or shooting style. I shot the three finger model and absolutely love it. Its smooth trigger and adjustable thumb knob make it a permanent resident in my arsenal.
The silky-smooth and ultra-crisp internal mechanism and hook feature Hot Shot's exclusive Titanium-Diamond Nitride™ coating and hardening process that equal stronger parts with 60-percent less friction than 440 Stainless Steel. This process pledges a hook and sear system that won't exhibit any brittleness under even the most extreme working temperatures from Canada's most extreme northern whitetail range to the foothills and canyons of Arizona's Coues deer country. This Hot Shot exclusive process allows the release's internal parts to be cut from a softer metal, creating more precise angles and tighter tolerances. However, don't confuse soft metal with decreased quality. Haling from an Aerospace pedigree, this unique process creates rock-solid parts with a surface hardness of over Rockwell 70!
If you are looking for a new release give the Hot Shot manufacturing's Stan Potts release aid a look, I am sure that you will not be disappointed.
