The Ascent is the result of years of learning from the success of former Scott products like the BackSpin, Halo, and many of the Scott family hinge releases. In this new technology, Scott family engineers brought many of the best features of releases like the back spin to the forefront again in what has become the hottest archery release aid in 2019.
To me, target panic is a mental issue. It really comes down to fear of failure. For most, it comes out as an inability to put your sight pin on the target and execute a clean shot without the anticipation of missing.

There are so many people out there that have lost the enjoyment of shooting because of target panic and been driven to quit shooting all together. They struggle to execute a good shot without having the feeling of anxiety or even being able to get the pin on target. Having gone through it myself, I have personally felt the struggle and the pain that target panic can cause.

Most people at some point struggle with target panic. It is completely mental, much like the “yips” in golf. To get through it you just have to stay committed and mentally fight through the anxiety. The best Scott release for target panic would probably be the Ascent. With the adjustments, you can set it to a perfect and consistent shot timing fit to you to alleviate some anxiety in the shot.
