    Do you put water resistant or water proof 'stuff' on the reinforced fingers? If not, do you recommend a particular 'stuff'(lol) to keep them slippery when they're wet? Thanks

      A:

      So far I have not got my Damascus shooting glove wet, however my past experience with wet leather gloves is that they get slippery enough on they own. I would not recommend adding a slippery agent to the glove. Hopethis helps. Robb.

      A:

      Are you looking to truly waterproof them, like for bowfishing, or preserve
      the leather? For the latter you can use any all natural lip balm or olive
      oil (or standard leather care fluid). For bowfishing you might be better
      off trying a plastic tab versus a shooting glove. If you've already bought
      the gloves, pick up some powder-free exam gloves at the drugstore or Wal
      Mart and wear those over your gloved hand.

    I am right between the medium and small sizing for this glove. Any suggestion as to whether to go small and hope it stretches? For use with a 45# Barebow.

      A:

      A very good question. Personally I've found that the glove doesn't stretch at all. After putting the glove on but before shooting it's perfectly sized, but after shooting it seems a little tight in a finger or two. You should probably go for the larger size :) Hope this helps

      No worries Mate a Damascus glove will stretch with time. If you like put the glove on and dab a little bit of metholated spirits on the tight spots with a sponge and wear thwe glove until it drys. I use an undersize glove myself as I like the custom fit works for me........Bobcat

      I recommend getting the small. The glove will naturally stretch over time; or you can use a leather conditioner to get it to stretch sooner.

      A:

      I am between small and medium sizes in these gloves, too. I ordered a small
      size Damascus glove because I was hoping it would stretch but when I tried
      it on it seemed too tight to hope that it would stretch enough to feel
      comfortable at any point. I ended up returning it and going with a
      Wyandotte open-ended glove, size small, because those gloves have elastic on
      the back. That's the one I still use. I think the elastic helped the small
      size stretch enough to feel comfortable right away but it's well made enough
      that the elastic hasn't over-stretched despite the fact that I use it a
      couple times a week for target practice.
      Hope that helps. Happy holidays!

      A:

      Wait! - I think I should add to my previous answer that I'm female and my
      ring size is 5, so I have pretty slim fingers in addition to the fact that
      I'm between small and medium sizes on the shooting gloves. If FatBoyWithBow
      has larger fingers, he might want to go with a medium glove despite the
      length of his hand because the leather on the fingertips of the Wyandotte
      gloves fits rather tightly at first and I don't think it will stretch too
      much... I'm assuming the doe skin on the Damascus glove would fit similarly.

  • Q:

    I tried out a medium and my hands are a special case. My fingers fit the medium tips perfectly, my hand and fingers are so long that the velcro would actually be right below the V that your thumb and index finger make. If I'm to get a large or x-large for that matter, would I still fit the finger slots decently, and would the velcro reach my wrist? Am I forever doomed to have a weird hand with no glove to match it?

    Thanks for your time.

      hello.  I am not sure if your message was meant for a user question or to directly to 3rivers but i got your email.   I am not the store but just someone who bought the glove.   sorry i cant be much of a help on this one.   I bought the large over the internet so i did not have another glove there to compare it to.    my hands are on the smaller side and the velcro goes right to my wrist.   seems like you have the total opposite problem that i have.   Maybe you can cut the back part where the back of you hand is and have someone sew in a piece of leather or elastic in to extend the length.    good luck

      A:

      The finger slots on the large and extra larger are going to be larger than the medium, more than likely they will not fit you as well. I recommend looking at getting a tab. You can get the large or extra large to compensate for the length of your fingers and then you can always trim it to fit the width.

  • Q:

    I am currently shooting a 60# bow at 28 inches. Should I get a thicker glove or will this be fine? Once I get a glove I will be shooting 1-2 hours per day.

      A:

      A good question. This glove is obviously quite thin, and pulling a 36# bow @ 28' for about 6 hours in a day is fine, though a 60# bow would be different entirely. The glove should be fine though I would save some money in case it isn't. Sorry I can't give a more definite answer as I have no experience with any bows over 50#, or 36# with finger releasing.

      This glove is not likely to be thick enough for 60lbs. For that draw
      weight, I would recommend the a glove with kevlar or rubber reinforced
      fingertips. The superglove might be a good one to try.

      John;
      I also shoot a 60# bow for about an hour a day. I use the super glove and
      am VERY satisfied with the protection it gives me. Before I bought this
      glove I had sore, numb fingers constantly. I bought the Damascus glove for
      my son who shoots a 40# bow. The Damascus glove is very thin, gives a
      great feel for the string but is, in my opinion, much too light for the
      heavier bow. The super glove is the way to go.

      A:

      I like the damascus glove a lot, personally. I think if you are going to
      be doing that much shooting a day, it might be beneficial to go with the
      thicker glove. However I sent the thicker glove back because i wasn't able
      to feel the string. It might break in well with that much use.
      Hope this helps,
      Randy

      A:

      This glove works best for a light bow used by a casual shooter. I shoot a
      50# bow at 28 inches and found this glove to be far too thin. I found that
      a thicker glove is much better for me. The extra padding does not
      interfere with my shooting and helps me shoot for longer periods.

      I'm shooting my 50# HOYT BUFFALO with this new glove, feels good, since I'm
      not shooting that often like you, I suggest you to choose a thicker one.

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The thickness of the glove will be more personal preference than anything else. Normally shooting a heavier bow will lead to using a thicker glove. If you are more interested in the style of glove than the thinness of this model take a look at the Berlin Deerskin glove and the Dura Glove. They are both made in the same style but a little bit thicker.

  • Q:

    I am trying to purchase equipment for my son as a gift. I know nothing about archery, but my brother has given me a list of what to order from you. How do you measure a hand to determine the size needed for a shooting glove. My son lives 14 hours away so I will have to ask him to send me his measurements. Thank you for your help. Clueless Mother

      A:

      You will need to measure around the hand just below your knuckles, but still above you thumb. That is the measurement that will apply to the chart.

      Answered on 4/2/2012 by Justin from 3Rivers Archery
    • A:

      This is a good choice. Try the sizing chart to get a general idea.
      (http://www.3riversarchery.com/3riverssizingcharts.asp#shootinggloves/tabs)

      Although, if he is rather tall, as I am, I would consider ordering a size larger than recommended as my hands tend to be longer than average. My guess is he would fit well in a small/medium.
      Hope it helps!
