  • Q:

    How do I know if I have the correct size for a proper fit of the shooting tab?

      A:

      I would base the size off of like a work glove, driving, golf etc. If it does not fit you can send it back for a different size. If it is a little big you can always trim a tab down with a pair of scissors.

      A:

      Dear longbow:
      The "Berlin" style glove size recommendations, on the Three Rivers Web
      site, turned out to be about right for me. I'm 6'1" and weigh 225
      pounds, so I am used to buying "XL" sizes for t-shirts, and the like.
      But this informal "rule of thumb" proved to be dead wrong, in the case
      of the Eichler tab. I now shoot, and much prefer, the "L" or "Large"
      cordovan tab -- and NOT the "XL" tab.
      I shoot a 65 lb., 70" longbow, split-finger style, with a "deep" hook --
      and thus by far the greatest "friction point" on my release, is the
      "crease" between the first and second joints, of the first three fingers
      of my string hand. The Eichler tab covers this high-friction "crease"
      area perfectly. But I also like the tab to stop, and leave "uncovered",
      the extreme tips of all three shooting fingers. All I feel on the
      release, is a soft pleasant thump, on the tips of all three fingers --
      as the string gently pushes, and rolls them out of the way.
      And not to worry, even if you order the wrong size the first time -- as
      I did, the cordovan leather on the SECOND tab you order, which will be
      the correct size, will more than outlast any THREE calf's hair tabs, you
      could have bought in its place. And your initial mistake, should be
      close to paying for itself already. As Howard Hill once said, everyone
      has an excuse, for missing the first shot -- but nobody has an excuse,
      for missing the second.
      So shoot straight, and good luck :)

      A:

      I have found that the finger should be large enough to be loose and the tab should well cover the width of your fingers. I have long fingers so finding a tab that covers my finger tips is a challenge. For winter go up a size or 2 depending on your gloves.

      A:

      I use glove size. I use large gloves so I get the large finger tab. If the tab is going to be used with gloves (winter hunting) get the size bigger.
      The tab hole will stretch initially and you can always trim the end of the tab if it over hangs the end of your fingers when you draw back.
      Cheers

    Is this tab not available in small or are you just temporarily out of stock?

      A:

      This tab does not come in a small size. The best solution would be to get a medium and to trim it to fit.

      One is leather. The other is rubber.

      A:

      The tab has two layers. The cordovan at the string and a thin layer of some rubberized fabric. I think the leather at the finger hole is top grain stitched to the cordovan. It is not three layers here though. I suppose if you wanted more feel you could cut the rubberized fabric off and just go with the one layer. I have been very pleased with this tab and need to order another one for a standby. .......... Hmmm, no time like the present.
      Hope this helps,

      A:

      It is one piece of thick stiff cordovan leather with thin, almost rubber like second layer. After a couple hundred releases of more it starts soften and has excellent feel...

  • Q:

    Hi
    When discussing size is it about tab length or finger hole size? My concern is over wether the finger hole will be too loose. My fingers are long and slender. If I order medium is there alot of difference in length?

    Thank you
    Harry
    P.S. I did see how to measure in answers section.

      A:

      Sizing is about the length and width of the tab, the hole size will not matter if it is loose.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I have long fairly slender "guitarist hands" so I ordered a L and XL. There isn't much difference in the hole (noticeable but still slight). The main difference between them is width, especially the one over. The L fits me perfectly. my middle finger is approximately an 1" 1/16 (cant remember ring size) and both the XL and L will not fall off my finger.

      Hope that helps.

      Spacers are a personal preference. They are not a necessary piece of a tab.

      A:

      Shooting Gloves/Tabs
      Extend your hand flat. With a measuring tape, wrap it around the hand just below the knuckles and fingers, but above the thumb. Apply the measurement to the chart below. Order the smaller size if an in-between size, as leather does tend to strech to fit.

      Gloves/Tabs
      If Hand Measures Men's Sizes
      7.5" - 8" = Small
      8.5" - 9" = Medium
      9.5" -10" = Large
      10.5"-11" = X-Large

    • A:

      now I;m going to give you and example on how I size abs for myself and it has been pretty consistent with all tabs I have tried. MY middle finger is 3.5" long and my middle finger sticks out 1/2" past the XL tab when fingers are straight. on the string the end of my fingers match up to the end of the tab. I hope this helps, if not contact the customer service reps at 3 Rivers Archery, they are the best.

      It is fairly thin but offers adequate protection I shoot my 55# bow with no problem. My 60# bow is a little more finger sting after a long session.

    I would purchase a 3 under Fred Eichler cordovan tab made exactly like this one. Any plans for one in the future? Can't wait.

      Very good question. Right now we are only offering exact matches of what Fred Eichler shoots, but that is a good idea to consider for the future.

    Can I shoot 3 under with this tab?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      I have seen people use a split finger tab to shoot 3-under in the past, but normally it is not as comfortable as using a tab that is made specifically for 3-under shooters, such as item #TC3X.
