Cons:The leather is very hard (like a saddle), while I've been taking steps to soften it, the glove begins to hurt after 30-40 arrows. The finger holes come to a point and the tips of my fingers get pinched. I also can't feel the string well. I have not given up on this product but If I were someone else I'd try one of the other brands. For now I'm keeping my trusty finger tap.

Pros:The sizing guide was accurate, the product is very well made (I'll dust for 20 years before that glove breaks).

      Comments about Cordovan Traditional Archery Shooting Glove:

      I shoot every day unless it is raining. I have been using the Super Glove for a few years now and have been very happy with it except for all the extra leather at the end of the finger tips (the extra leather on the end of the fingers can rub my skin raw along my jaw line if I shoot more than 150 shots). As a boy I grew up using an open-ended finger type of glove. I eventually started using tabs as an adult and then I went to the super glove. I recently bought the Cordovan Traditional Archery Glove and it combines all the elements that I like when shooting my 55+ lb. longbows: the protection of cordovan, the open-ended finger style, and the quality workmanship and traditional design. I have made hundreds of shots with it and so far I am very happy. I think I read through all the reviews before I purchased the glove and one of the things that concerned me was a few people said the stitching on the cordovan tips was a problem. After hundreds of shots the stitching is holding up just fine. The other thing that I found in the reviews is that the glove runs a little on the larger side. So instead of going with my normal large size I bought a medium. I made the right choice. The open ended design seems to have spared my face getting rubbed raw so that is really nice as well. The glove is stiff when new but it breaks in nicely. No surprise there. Very nice, smooth release as well and the price is fantastic.

      Comments about Cordovan Traditional Archery Shooting Glove:

      I liked the way it will adjust to my hand. The pads on the fingers were removed and now I have more of a feeling of the string when I release the arrow. I would definitely purchase another. I soak the glove in linseed oil removed the finger pads, and now the glove works great.

        Comments about Cordovan Traditional Archery Shooting Glove:

        I was looking for a glove without elastic in it. the elastic always seems to wear out. I realy like the look and feel of this glove. It was kind of stiff at first, but after putting 3 or 4 dozen arrows down range it broke in quite well. The stiching on the middle finger overlay started to fray alittle, but other than that its a well made glove.

        Service and delivery comments:

        shipping was really fast. The package arived three days before I thought it would. AWSOME !!!

        Comments about Cordovan Traditional Archery Shooting Glove:

        I have used this glove for 7 months now, and I estimate I've shot about 4000 arrows with it. The leather is excellent quality and the fit and comfort have only improved as the leather has broken in and conformed to my hand. If you are between sizes I would suggest sizing down, because the length and wristband are very adjustable but the fingertips stretch and loosen with time. I like the traditional feel of the design, especially the use of a metal snap instead of velcro for the wrist strap.The cordovan tip overlays offer a slick release and very good protection -- in fact, too much protection for my 45# recurve. I cannot feel the string at all through the thick, double layer of leather. I wish the overlays didn't wrap so far around the sides because they make my fingers feel unnaturally wide and somewhat clumsy. I might recommend this glove to a friend with a heavy bow if it didn't have one major design flaw: the stitching that attaches the overlays is completely exposed on the release surface, and has therefore worn though and begun to unravel. I shoot split finger with a brass nocking-point, so the wear is especially apparent on the upper edge of the middle finger. See picture for 4000 arrows worth of wear. It's hard to part with the great traditional look and feel, but I will not be buying this glove again.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was prompt and package condition good. As always, excellent service from 3Rivers!

          Best Uses

          • Reenactment
          • Target Shooting
          • Warbow

          Comments about Cordovan Traditional Archery Shooting Glove:

          After reading some reviews here I bought this glove for use with my 102# warbow. The finger protection is excellent, vastly superior to the glove I was previously using. After 2-3 hours of warbow shooting with this glove I can still barely feel the string pressure. Because of that, this will most likely be the glove I continue to buy in the future. I would highly recommend this glove to other warbow archers. I also like the lack of velcro on the wrist; I wore out the velcro on my previous glove after a few months.

          One complaint I have about it is that I would prefer if they made right and left hand models of this glove, rather than the universal glove. The reason for that is the first and third finger stalls are the same size so that it can be used on either hand, but that makes the stall too loose on my third finger, causing it to twist after almost every shot. It is quite annoying.

          Also, others have commented on the pad stitching coming into contact with the string, causing stitching abrasion. I can see where this might be an issue, but it hasn't been a problem for me yet.

          Service and delivery comments:

          No complaints on service or delivery.

              Let me ammend my previous review!

              Stitching in the cordovan finger tabs failed on first use, 50 shots. Stitching is exposed to the abrasion, friction of the string serving. Stitches abraded, failed in first 50 shots.

              We're shopping for a trad style glove where the entire stall (finger tip) is cordovan and seamless across the finger face area which is exposed to string abrasion.

              I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS ITEM TO ANYONE.

                Comments about Cordovan Traditional Archery Shooting Glove:

                The Neet Trad. glove here was recommened to me in ArcheryTalk Traditional forum.

                My third glove, I have a Martin (deer hide, cowhide finger pads), and Vista (cowhide, synthetic finger pads). Both are XL size, the Vista a bit tight in the fingers, but relaxing as it gets used.

                The Neet is a nice design, light suede leather and no elastic. Snap buckle wrist strap adjusts, as does the back strap length out to the fingers. Back strap tab matches and slips into a double layer band on the back of the wrist, held neatly in place w/ a leather lace.

                Quality stitching, well sewn/reinforced where needed.

                Cordovan tabs on the fingers are heavy. I was looking for heavy tabs as target shooting entails a lot of shots and a lot of finger pressure on the string. Tabs pad the feel of the string, but I'm getting a firm hook, good smooth release.

                XL in this glove is a bit on the large side. Tips of the stalls are open and tapered so that fingers snug into a "cone" for fit. That said, I think maybe the L size might fit me better.

                Excellent Trad. glove for target!
