As a pro archer for Scott Archery, I'm often asked if I use a click or no click on my hinge release. Personally I shoot a click on my hinges, because I use the click to start my shot. What I mean by that is I draw back and start getting into my anchor and my release should click, at that point I start aiming and going through my shot. Doing this helps me start from the same point each shot and I also do not waste any time aiming.
I think beginners should start with a click on their hinges to use as a “safety” so it will warn you that way someone with little experience will avoid a premature fire and potentially busting their nose! But I think the type of shot you have should tell you to use a click or not; some archers are very patient and can handle the feeling of a lot of movement and not use a click on a hinge. Others like me are a little more aggressive and like to have little movement before the shot and have more control of aiming and that sort of thing. Overall I think everyone can benefit using a click on a hinge release.
