Innovation in archery has always been driven by necessity rather than research, data and knowledge. Genesis promises to be the first major leap forward in release aid technology since their invention in the mid 1960's. Genesis utilises a new to world firing mechanism and sizing framework, new to industry materials and manufacturing techniques and infinite customisability to ensure the perfect fit for every user.

Genesis’ main case will be CNC machined brass, with all internal components being CNC machined hardened stainless steel. The finger beds and anchor lock are where the new to industry material and manufacturing technique show off it’s benefits. These two parts utilise the Selective Laser Sintering process to create solid nylon parts that are extremely strong and hard wearing, and can be dyed almost any colour. The process itself also allows the part to take any shape necessary without the hassle or clean up of other additive manufacturing methods. With all manufacturing taking place locally and all standard parts being sourced from within Australia, this makes Genesis the first and only entirely Australian release device.
Matt's passion for design stems from a lifetime of being unable to have the tools required to perform at the highest level in his sport of Archery. He uses design as a tool to create working and practical solutions for problems that many archers face. He not only has a thirst for understanding why a problem exists, but strives to find real world solutions to them.
