This thread got me thinking about my glove. I’ve used a Duraglove all along and have been very happy with it. I’m pulling a r/d longbow rated at 46# and like the feel of the string, plus just being able to use my hand for other things while wearing the glove. I got out my barely used tab and gave that another try. Aside from feeling a bit clumsy with it, I really liked that I just naturally went into a deep hook. But, I also felt extra pressure on my ring finger so maybe I’m torquing a bit with the tab. Last night I got out a Cordovan traditional style glove and cut out the finger tips as suggested. What I didn’t like about that glove before was that it kept the string too far away, which is what started this thread. I’ll give that a try later. Dwc
