This happens to me from time to time as well. What I’ve found is no matter what I’m using- glove or tab- it has a lot to do with where on my fingers the string lies before I draw, and the movement of my fingertips as I draw. Like this: I’m right eye dominant:wink: and thus pull the string with my right hand, one over two under. If I rest the string on the pads of my fingertips, but as I draw, bend my fingertips to point toward my ear, the string more or less rolls into the first joints of my fingers, thus turning counter clockwise and throwing the arrow off the shelf. I’m still learning and always trying to convince the inner me that “CONSISTENCY IS KEY”, meaning if I’m going to shoot from the pads of my fingertips, I ought not bend them further in as I prepare to draw. Hope this makes sense.
