  • Q:

    I notice that this tab only has two holes, does this mean that medieval archers used only two fingers to draw the bow?

      No, I think one finger goes through the divit in the middle. so, back to three fingers :)

      A:

      They use two fingers the middle finger is placed between your index finger and ring finger and it rests on the leather.

      A:

      Medieval archers, as today archers, had many different shooting styles. The
      number of fingers vary from man to man. The holes in the tab do not
      designate how many fingers are used to shoot the bow. The tab has 2 holes
      so it will stay on your pointer finger and ring finger, the flat part of
      the leather is what is protecting your fingers. The medieval tabs are
      designed to cover 3 fingers but you can shoot 2 fingers as well.

      A:

      No, two fingers are used to keep the leather tab in place. Those are your index finger and ring finger.
      But the leather covers three fingers and you use three fingers to draw your bow. One finger above the arrow nock, and two below.

      A:

      The holes have nothing to do with how many fingers you use. Notice the left
      side of the picture, the bottom half is wide enough for two fingers, the
      top, only one. The holes only help keep it on your fingers.

      A:

      A lot of medieval archers did use only two fingers, but this tab is
      designed for three-fingered shooting. The holes are for your first and
      third fingers, with your middle finger going into the indentation between
      the holes.

      I do not know about how medival archers used it. I have this tab and use 3 fingers. I place my index and ring fingers in the holes and my middle finger between them. It works for me. Sorry that doesnt really answer your question.

      A:

      There were a variety of shooting styles used all over the world, but that
      tad actually uses 3 fingers your index and ring fingers go into the two
      holes and your middle finger goes in the valley between them.

  • Q:

    Do the size differences accommodate finder widths, or finger lengths? I'm female, and have long fingers for my hands (the middle finger is almost as long as the palm (3" vs 3.5"). I'm concerned that it'll be too short in the smaller sizes, but too wide in the larger sizes. Which size would you recommend?

      A:

      I would probably suggest getting a medium sized tab, or possibly a large. I
      think the size differences are for both finger width and length. My middle
      finger is 3 1/8" long, and the large tab fits me perfectly. I didn't need
      to trim the leather at all, as some have stated doing. I was even able to
      stretch the finger holes of the tab slightly to accommodate my fingers
      while wearing an archery glove, in order to protect my fingers from a 90-lb
      draw longbow.

      A:

      Both, the larger sizes are going to be longer and wider. The nice thing about a tab is that you can trim it down to fit your exact hand size. If you are worried about the length of the fingers, I recommend getting a large. If it is too wide it can be trimmed down.

  • Q:

    Is this the same color as the bow glove?

      A:

      Yes, the medieval leather tab is made by the same manufacturer as the bow glove. They are a close match, but being leather, is not guaranteed to be a 100% match.
