Default Any recomendations on a release?

Trying to narrow down my list of some releases I wanna try.

I want to finally start shooting a loop. But my carter Lock jaw 2000 is too wide for a loop unless I put a big ol loop on LOL...

The mini goose by scott is too small fer me to shoot and I know a bunch of yall use that. I need some other suggestions

I shoot a Scotts caliper for hunting and I am on a quest for a thumb trigger release for 3-D. I got a carter Insatiable 2 on a trade but it has been claimed by the boy. Here is a link to the scott:

The release only "seems" to small, its not. I have large, fat hands and it only took a few shots with the small release to get used to it.

For a long time, I used a full grip release, but I found the Scotts was a lot more accurate and easier to use.

Just takes a little practice to get used to the size.

I shoot a scott's release not sure the model cause I have had it so long, it has a black leather strap and I can adjust it by how tight I tighten the strap,sorry I can't be much more help than that. but like they say you get what you pay for, I think I gave 55or60 dollars for it 8 or 10 yrs. ago....
