Smile How Many of you shot with finger tabs or gloves?

Hey I started out with tradional and went to compound about 20 years ago and I still shoot with a finger tab, I like it and do great but alot of people tell me a relaese would make my shooting even better. What do you use and why?

I use a release. When I first got set up, the bow tech said I would shoot much better with a release. I still haven't shot a 300. (*~*)

When I shoot my recurve I use a glove. When I shoot my compound I use a release. Its more accurate and alot less wear and tear on my fingers.

I use a release but if something happens I can shoot with fingers and still be accurate.

I started with fingers 1st recurve then a compound. The release is more accurate as long as you donít punch it. The nice thing about fingers is, they are hard to forget at home and you can get a shot off faster.

I think there are some days I could manage to forget my fingers.

When I started I tried shooting with fingers gloves and a release, found that I liked the release the most.

I been shooting finger for 30 year and use I tab. My thing is if you shoot great within your limits why change what works. I rarely have to shoot at at a deer past 25 yards. I belive most people went to a release is due to some not being able to shoot tight groups and wanting to shoot out farther. (just my opinion)
