Comments about Thumb Release Leather Shooting Glove:

Recently bought an 80# Mongol style bow. I needed some serious protection for my thumb while learning to shoot with a thumb release Asian style and a plastic or bone thumb ring was irritating for me. This glove was the perfect solution. While the glove initially was a bit stiff, it loosened up after some heavy shooting. Two thumbs way up for me. I love this glove.

      Comments about Thumb Release Leather Shooting Glove:

      Good quality glove ideal for using the thumb release method.Well constructed with soft leather it does the trick and allows one to loose arrows with no discomfort.Purists may still want to use a horn ring but for starting out this glove is perfect.

      • Starting Thumb Draw

      Comments about Thumb Release Leather Shooting Glove:

      Alright, so I bought this because I'm a newbie archer and heard about thumb draw. Before I bought this I was just using a circle of leather that some friends had laying around. Since it was just a random piece of leather the fit was horrid and it often slips off.

      This glove is an adequate choice for a starter/newbie. Its not very traditional so, you might get a few stares.

      Overall its not too intrusive. I was able to nock and pull arrows out without taking it off. I was also able to hold my arrows in the drawing hand, so I didn't need a quiver.

      So if you're looking into thumb draw and haven't bought a quiver, this might save you a few bucks.

      makes me want to try thumb ring

      By Jasper

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Thumb Release Leather Shooting Glove:

      To be honest, this glove really doesn't provide as much protection for your thumb as necessary, especially if your'e using anything above a 50 pound draw weight (mine is 50). I salvaged some high quality leather from an old horse saddle and cut me a small thumb shaped piece to support the padding on the shooting glove. Now it works fine, but another problem is the fit... the fit is a bit awkward because of the unnecessary surface tension created from the pointer and middle finger when gripping the arrow/string. At some moments I didn't even insert my middle finger into the glove to release the tension. All you really need to cover is the thumb. So I guess a real high quality leather thumb ring would work if it was laminated with three layers, and finished to form a hard but flexible leather thumb ring. The good side to the glove is that it's hard to lose.

      • Inexpensive

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Comments about Thumb Release Leather Shooting Glove:

          This is an interesting and inexpensive way to try out the thumb shooting method. Half of the cost of a thumb ring but does not protect the thumb as well in a high draw weight bow (My bow is a 62# longbow). My only other Negative is that there is not an XL glove. I understand the need for a snug fit but it would be nice to have a larger glove body.
          This, to me, puts my arm into a more natural and powerful position for drawing the bow. It is a similar position to a trigger attached to your wrist. I would recommend the glove if you are wanting to try something different. It does take practice to learn the release style. Overall I would say try it out.

            Comments about Thumb Release Leather Shooting Glove:

            THis works great instead of a thumb ring . it will not break in cold weather so you can use it hunting . Also it will not fly off . My only problem is they need a larger large. My hands are wide and it is hard to get on and off .
