    I need to replace my Martin shooting glove because it's worn out. I'm looking for a new glove that is the same design but with Cordovan fingers. This is what my current glove looks like: Any suggestions? The Kustom King Deerskin glove looks to be what I'm looking for, however they're sold out...

    Hey ya'll, we just listed shell cordovan squares on our site. Look under the glove/tab section. You can now make your own tabs with it. Not on sale, but to be available is a very rare thing. We will also be listing the Safari Tuff tabs today in both three under and the all new split finger tab...

    It seems this is the stuff to have for a tab. I shoot 3 under calf hair tabs up to now. Just wondering how they work in the rain, and what you use to condition it, if anything. Also I want the real stuff made from horse hide (also some for a shelf, which might be easier to sacrifice a cheap...

    Several people have asked about the availability of Shell Cordovan leather. This interesting video will give you a look "Inside" the Horween Tannery in Chicago. Enjoy. - John

    Hey all, I am wanting to make a tab and I cannot find any Cordovan leather. The Online Store is SOLD OUT. Every other place I find the prices are very high, too high to justify buying it for making a tab. Does anyone know where I can find some Cordovan or other suitable leather for a TAB I...

    I'm going to replace my tab. I had super leather before, Cavalier,but I'm wondering if I should give the Cordovan a try. What are the good and bad points of each. Thanks again,

    I was talking w/ a bud of mine that does some leather work about getting some of his offcuts of Cordovan and he asked me "Waht about the cut we in teh business call "North of Cordovan". Huh? Never heard of that.. tell me more!!! He says's: The shell is usually scraped down from the flesh side...

    Just a brief comparison, I was surprised. I had been tuning my Quinn, using my Oberon tab, and was frustrated because my bareshafts were starting to act stiff, when I had obtained good results previously. Something about 32# and over 60 fingers makes bareshaft shooting testy. I settled down a...

    My favorite tab is the cordovan ABS Tab three under sold at the TT store. Wish it was a little thicker. Anybody know where I can buy some cordovan to make my own. Anybody know if the leather sold at TT store is thicker.

    I'm strongly considering ordering the cordovan leather ovals from the TradTalk Store, but I'd like to have a rough idea of the size of the complete ovals before I order. I sent an email a couple of days ago, but got no response. Does anyone know the approximate size of these ovals. Thanks for...

    does this tab have a metal plate? I think i realy dont like metal plates. I started with a calf hair tab which could explain it, or maybe the cavalier just aint the right tab for me. Thanks.

    Hey all, Got a DAS Dalaa about a month ago and have been shooting velco on the shelf and side plate... My only complaint is that on a deathly still morning there is a slight hiss as the arrow is drawn... I used cordovan on a longbow several years ago and it wore like iron but I had trouble...
