      There are several different types of different releases that are available
      and were in use in period. IMHO, a durable and reliable release is of
      greater concern than a really smooth release. Combat archery is a whole
      'nother beast than target shooting.

      For usage in target archery perhaps a roller nut may have the advantage of
      being somewhat smoother hence aid in accuracy but on the battle field I have

      found a rising pin release quite a bit better than my roller nut bow. It may
      personal preference but I would advise a rising pin over roller nut.
      I think the best place to ask this would be on the SCA Missile combat list.
