fingers

    Just a quick, general post to grab some user opinions. Where is the ideal place to hook the bow string on the tab? How deep in the fingers do you hold? "Simple ain't easy."

    I have overly flexible joints, looking at the image below is there too much bend back at my knuckles? Do I actively need to try and keep them straighter? Theres probably close to 45degrees of backwards bend when pressure is applied to the string.

    My wife has long slender fingers and we can't find a shooting glove that fits her properly. The typical large gloves are too loose for her fingers, and the small sizes though they fit snugly are too short to strap on her wrist. I bought some finger tabs for her as alternative solution but she...

    Do any other 2/3 fingers under shooters have developing arthritis in their string fingers ?

    What is a good compound for finger shooting? Something used, and not too pricey. Haven't been shooting as much as I would like, thought I might try compound for a little while. thanks dave

    Not trying to be a wise guy, but has anybody here ever had nerve damage to their fingers from shooting bare finger? Or is this just something so many people have just heard about? I ask because I seldom wear a glove but I shoot only 30 to 40# bows. I seldom shoot more than about a hundred or so...

    Put some inserts in last night, and did my usual fine job of getting my fingers covered in goo. Problem is this time I used AAE Max Impact Insert Glue, so it looks like I was putting tar on my roof or something. I tried everything to clean up my hands when finished, but my hands are still dark...

    Does anyone shoot with two fingers instead of three? Are there advantages and disadvantages?

    Has anyone tried this? I've sometimes wondered if having the fourth (ring) finger on the string is really contributing much, or causing distraction. I suppose that individuals have differing relative finger lengths and strength, so that might change things between shooters. (Arthritis matters too!)

    Well my back still hurts but not like before. (I injured my back working on form.) I decided to go out and shoot a bit. It still hurt while I shot but the pain was definitely manageable. I am hoping that the muscle has healed over the past five weeks and now I just have to break up scar tissue...

    When you calculate draw weight at your fingers are you using the generic + or - 3 lbs per inch based on the limbs stated draw verses your draw? Or a different method?

    Yep, we can agree that's fingers? if you look carefully you can see callous starting half way up the pads of the bottom two fingers. Hmmm? I didn't have callous till I started shooting lighter bows. Doesn't that mean my fingers are dragging the string? Thoughts please?

    Does a bow need to have zero tiller on both limbs when it is strung to shoot three fingers under properly for gap shooting?

    As per title really Where does the three fingers under string holding technique come from? I've been told it's North American, possibly 'invented' post first world war. Is it really that modern? No ancient / older cultures around the world used it? Why?

    Is it on your shotlist. I feel the need to relax my drawing hand a little after reaching ancor to make a clean release.It makes my "clicker", the feather in the upper lip lift loose, and then I go to expansion and try to "get it to click" , touch again.Sometimes a very hard task. Do you, and...
