If you shoot a back tension release, are in the
market for one or are just considering the possibilities,
you've landed in the right place.If you shoot a
concho release, trigger release or any other type
of archery release and think a back tension release
won't work for you, please spend some time here,
look over our wares and visit our Frequently
Asked Questions page...you may be surprised
by what you learn. Zenith Archery Products is
considered the Leader in back tension release
technology for many reasons. We're not the oldest
manufacturer of back tension releases, nor are
we the largest, but consider the following:
ZAP is the Leader in comfort and ergonomic
design, with all of our three and four finger releases,
from the very first one we've produced, being shaped
precisely to fit the gradual increase of the curve
of the human hand at the point where the release
is gripped, (thus it was named the "Comfort"). This
allows for a more relaxed shot set up. And all of
our machined releases have always been CNC cut from
5/8" stock using special form cutters and fully
radiused curves for maximum comfort. ZAP is the Leader
in technical innovation-the "clicker" cam and the practice cam were both pioneered
and introduced by ZAP, long before they appeared
on any competitor's product (regardless of what
they say!). These innovations allowed some of the
best shooters to further improve
their shot, and reduce "target panic".
ZAP also introduced the "Flip-It" head in the winter
of 2001, once again bringing true innovation to
the previously docile world of back tension releases.
This creative design allows you to cock your release
and relax...it will stay set, no matter which way
you move your hand. No more shaking your release
like a baby rattle to set it, no more treating your
cocked release like a hot cup of coffee until you
set it on your bow. Standard on all Comfort releases.
Also new in 2002 is the knurled thumb peg, which
is included with all of our Comfort "+" model releases.
It can be screwed into the release handle from either
side, to accommodate both left and right handed
shooters, or not used at all. Here it is shown on
our 4 finger Flame model.
is the Leader in back tension release safety, the
unique anchor point of our wrist strap
and the practice cam allow you to learn how to shoot
(or improve) your back tension release shot with
less risk of misfires or lost arrows. And of course,
we're the only manufacturer offering the "No Punch Method" training kit (until the
others catch up!).
is the Leader in quality design and manufacture,
with all of our releases using a fully machined
head, with the head shell being
fully CNC machined from aircraft aluminum instead
of being stamped steel and then bent into shape
as with some of our competitor's products. Closer
tolerances, better alignment, better accuracy...better
shots! Please take the time to learn more about
our quality manufacturing process here.
of course, ZAP is the Leader in customer service,
with all our releases guaranteed for the life of the
release. And you can purchase from us with complete
confidence-the only customer we don't want is a
Zenith Archery Products has introduced a new upgraded
nock receiver for your Bitzenburger fletching
jig. The replacement body will fit directly into
your jig and will still adjust for all three different
fletching patterns. The original receiver held
the arrow only by a loose fit on the nock. The
new receiver comes with two inserts which are
held into the body by a long screw which is tightened
through the rear of the receiver and will hold
the arrows directly, without slippage.
One insert is sized to fit snuggly into any arrow
which uses a G nock. Two sleeves are supplied
which will allow this insert to fit both X nock
and H nock arrows.
The second insert does arrows which use pin nocks,
holding the pin by the hole in the insert. It
also does arrows which use Super nocks (.246 carbon,
Super Uni-bushings, etc.) by fitting the insert
into the back of the arrow. If the pin holder
becomes too loose, just gently squeeze the segments
together with a small plier until it holds the
pin tightly again..
An adjustable upper support plate is mounted using
the template and hardware included with the kit.
Once the arrow is mounted in the jig, the plate
is adjusted to support the upper end of the shaft.
Older arrows with glue on nocks can still be done
using the old receiver.
The complete kit sells for $30 ea. with a 10%
discount being offered when ordering three or
more kits. Normal shipping will add $4 to your
total, except for large orders and overseas orders.
The shipping on those will be calculated before
the order is sent
