    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 made this tab from a piece of flattened schedule 40 PVC pipe. I really like my Yost cordovan tab, but I wanted to try something that extended a little towards the palm to see if it helps to stabilize my hand a bit. I still have some work to do in that regard, but the tab shoots really well...

    I've been chasing my tail trying to achieve good arrow flight for over a year. I tried nearly every arrow configuration I could put together. I got so frustrated that I just put down my recurve altogether. I just purchased a Black Hunter recurve in 35# draw to work on my form. My other bows...

    I’m looking for some suggestions on some good quality spit finger tabs. I have been shooting three under but tonight I tried a split finger tab and I’m thinking of going that way. I need something not too thin with a spacer to help with my 64 year old finger joints.

    I remember a while ago I saw a post from someone here that used their Yost tab as a clicker. I've searched and I can't find it. If I remember correctly they didn't add anything to the tab, they just put a nail from one of the fingers on the tab somewhere and when it popped they shot. Anyone...

    There have been a couple split-finger tabs around $100, but didn't think a 3-under tab could go for that much. Guess I was wrong. Neat idea being able to change the position of the crawl marks.

    I have been using a glove and shoot ok. Been wanting to use a tab for some time. Getting over the face slap and other issues after trying several tabs but they all seem to make me shoot left. Bare shafts for some reason hit center with fletched left. With glove they all hit the center...

    I believe I saw a thread about this here? I can’t seem to locate it so I will ask the question agian cause I seem to be having issues. I want to learn 3under using a tab but when I switch from my glove to my Black Widow tab my arrows go left, I am right handed, which shows to high spine. I tried...

    After reading about stringwalking I decided to give it a go with a Yost Pro-Tab lite with the leather face. Two things happened: First, I had better groups at 20 yards than I have ever had before. After gauging the correct walk for my distance I was hitting 6" groups with most arrows inside...

    Bought a large aae tab. Just tried it on today, not sure how I am supposed to where it? As I understand it the string is supposed to sit at the metal plate. Depending on how I place it I get one of two results. 1) If I sit it back all the way (finger loop at base / top of palm knuckle) my deep...

    I've been looking for a good barebow tab for 3 under and though there are a ton of good options out there, none of the ones I know have a lengthy tab plate. All of the tabs I tried have a smallish plate in comparison to say a KSL tab or a typical olympic tab. AAE Elite would be perfect for...

    Just ran across this tab on ebay. Interesting design.

    Hello all, Recently got back into shooting when my uncle gave me his Ben Pearson recurve from the 60's. I'm noticing that arrow flight is much cleaner when shooting without the tab. Thoughts on that? I shot a ton in high school, pushing 20 years ago, mostly bare finger, but developed an...

    I'm currently working on a 3D printed barebow tab when I decided to check online and saw that someone has already made one. Is anyone here the designer of this tab? Good job if it's you.

    I guess it is a cheaper version of their regular tab? Plastic instead of metal. Is the plastic good stuff? Solid and dense or feel light and brittle? I've been wanting to try the Yost, but a metal tab is out of the question in my area. Too cold. I get buy with metal risers because off wood (and...

    I’ve tried a few different tabs: Black Widow, Bateman, Safari Tuff, Saunders, and my favourite, the AAE Elite. And yup, I’m interested in trying another. 😄 Yost and Black Mamba interest me the most. Does anyone have experience with both and could do a comparison ? Thanks.
