  • Q:

    For a thumb release does a right handed shooter have to shoot the arrow off the right side of the bow and a left handed shooter off the left? Also, does a thumb release dramatically affect an arrow's spine? I only ask in case I ever decide to try the thumb release if I would have to tune my bow and arrows again.

      A:

      The correct way for a thumb release is RH shoots off the right side of the bow

      A:

      From what I've seen(YouTube, search 'turkish horsebow' or 'horsebow archery'), the traditional 'Asian' or thumb release almost always shoots off the right side of the bow for a right handed shooter.  Cock feather will face out to the right.  It can burn a little bit shooting right off the top of your thumb, so I wear a partial glove on that hand too.  
      As far as spine goes, I don't believe it affects it much at all.  The thumb release doesn't appear to twist the string quite as much as your normal three finger release does, but I've noticed no difference in how the arrows fly from one to another.  Point of impact does tend to drift to the right at first.
      I love the novelty and fun of shooting differently, so I think it's cool you want to try thumb shooting.  It's a pain to learn and I'm still having trouble hitting anything, but it's great to have such a unique skill.

      Hi friend you can shoot left of right it doesnt matter. Arrow spine and bow
      tuning stays the same. Shoots a little differnt just have fun.

      A:

      Correct - for the thumb release, the arrow goes on the thumb of the bow
      hand - which should be the right side for RH shooters and left for LH. I
      don't know about the tuning of the arrow - either wat would not surprise
      me. Also, one has to learn the release sufficiently (IMO) before tuning can
      be done effectively - else how would you know if it's the spine or the
      release? I've heard that bamboo is less effected by spine - so perhaps they
      are good arrows to start with. Lastly, you'll likely need to nock the arrow
      higher on the string since this is the main way to not have the fletching
      slice your hand (if you're shooting with a shelf-less bow).

      A:

      Yes right side of the bow for right handed and likewise for left handed. Regardless of release the arrow spine still applies.

      A:

      From my experiences with this glove, it doesn't seem to change any of that.
      It took some adjustment to not roll the arrow off of the rest, but no more
      than under grabbing the normal way. Other than that, it makes for a much
      smoother release. I shoot left handed of the right side of the bow. If you
      shoot a high poundage bow, thumb strength might be an issue. With a 35#
      bow, it's fairly easy to hold the arrow and not have it slip, but you do
      have to squeeze hard.

      Yes. Great way to start learning to shoot using thumb draw but you're gonna need to get a thumb ring in the end. I recommend the Kaya thumb ring or the Korean style thumb ring available at 3Rivers.

      I don't know, it's wrapped for Christmas, but looked like leather in it's
      packaging.

  • Q:

    How to choose correct size? I think this kind of glove needs to fit...well, like a glove, to be able to use it the same way as thumb ring. My hands aren't very large, so I'm thinking whether to choose small or medium glove. Can you give any measurements for each glove size, e.g. from wrist to second finger tip?

  • Q:

    I was looking at ordering a thumbring then I saw this. Is it used the same way in that you pull only with the thumb and hold your thumb with your finger? Or am I misunderstanding it? Is there a video?

      A:

      Yes this is used the same way a thumb ring is used. Instead of horn leather is the protecting surface.
