I had been using a well constructed leather finger tab with a metal grommeted finger opening that I had purchased from my local archery dealer. I trimmed the edge down to fit my smaller fingers. While I liked it's perfomance, I wanted to try a calf hair finger tab that two resident competative finger shooters used. I have had positive experience from this store in offering quality products and ordered one in a small to fit my hand. Small means small in this case. It was perfect for my narrow fingers. The spacer would get twisted a bit causing me to fidgit with it each time I loaded an arrow but that was the trade off for more finger feel. Since I was trained to shoot with the middle and ring finger I eventually removed the plastic finger spacer and the index finger tab. Wonderful string feel and slick release. Especially when you powder the calf hair with talc. This is a tough little tab that should last a long time. I did have to be extra conscious maintaining even pressure between the shooting fingers adjusting to more string feel. Notice I used past tense in the last sentence. My husband managed to squash his middle finger into it to try it. He kept it.
Sigh........gotta buy another.

The release was very smooth, but after only a few flights the hair was worn off of the large section and the smaller section completely broke loose. Maybe a different hold, serving, etc. would work for another archer.

    Comments about Calf Hair Shooting Tab:

    This is the best combination of feel, protection, and smooth release I've found so far. The rubber layer provides excellent protection while maintaining good feel. Then calfskin provides a smooth lease, and there's a little flap that goes under the index finger and protects it from getting scratched or abraded by the knocking point.

    Comments about Calf Hair Shooting Tab:

    Rubber middle is incorrectly placed. I have to fit the glove to the arrow, then readjust my fingers for correct placement. Might work better with rubber middle removed as long as you don't pinch the arrow.

      Even though the length of the tab was right for my hand size, the finger hole was a bit small and required some modifying.

      Comments about Calf Hair Shooting Tab:

      This is the first time I have used a tab. It performs well and the release is smooth off the calf hair. It is a little restrictive in loading the arrow as opposed to a glove.
      I have used it for target practice, but will continue to use a glove for hunting.

          Comments about Calf Hair Shooting Tab:

          Tab is simple and stiff enough to protect fingers and give a good consistent release. The hair does give it a very friction free release. You should't need or buy anything more elaborate than this for hunting, it really does the job.
