    Comments about The Original Fred Bear Master Archery Shooting Glove:

    Would need needle thin, long fingers to wear it as it came out of the box. Had to cut away a lot of the leather to get it on and still had very little finger mobility. Very thick so great protection but no feel at all. Stiching on one finger came out after very little use. Now that the smooth outer coating has worn it is griping the string making it difficult to get a smooth release.

      Comments about The Original Fred Bear Master Archery Shooting Glove:

      50 arrows lter. The finger guards twist out of allignment about every 3 or 4 shots. Plan on stitching the backs tighter for a custom fit. Suprisingly flexible for 3/32 tick leather. Fingers tingle a little after 50 with no pain. Had to wet and strech the wrist srap a little. Very satiied; just needs a little customizing.

      perfect for what I shoot

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Target Shooting

        Comments about The Original Fred Bear Master Archery Shooting Glove:

        This is my favorite target glove, I never use a tab. I suspect that if I were shooting 50-75# in the woods that I might want something heavier and sturdy, I'm not - so I want light and thin enough I can feel my string. But, it's not so thin that my fingers suffer from the string. Since I shoot 3-fingers under, I don't have any string pinch to worry about - a split finger shooter might rather use a tab or heavy glove over this glove.

        If you're shooting a target weight bow though, this is a nice, smooth finger wrapping that serves its purpose very well at the price.

        Because it's a thinner leather, it takes less time to break in the crease too. A plus for a target shooter - maybe not so much for the heavy hunter weights.

        I'd not recommend it for someone shooting 50#+ but on a lighter bow, for those who want to feel the string and still protect the fingers, it's very good.

        Comments about The Original Fred Bear Master Archery Shooting Glove:

        Not a terrible Glove but definitely not what I expected. The photo on both the web site and in the catalog is somewhat misleading, the leather is stitch poorly and is very thin, am not expecting it to last very long. Would have spent a few bucks more on a better glove but since it was call the Fred Bear Masters glove I thought I wouldn't be disappointed. Will keep for a back-up in my hunting pack but will definitely be looking for something of better quality for daily shooting. Best lesson, you get what you pay for, should have known better with the price they had on it, still can't picture Fred in the woods with one of these on. Might have been his design but I'm sure not the quality he would have gone with.

        Service and delivery comments:

        When I asked if they would help out for return freight because I was disappointed in quality they denied, however after I made a couple of comments they then came back with that they would pay return but I would have to pay to ship back out the better quality glove I should have went with. Not a very good return policy in my eyes. Could use improvement.

        Leather is not thick enough.

        Comments about The Original Fred Bear Master Archery Shooting Glove:

        The leather is quite thin. I would not recommend this glove for 60# and up bows. I have a Martin Hunter in 60# and the only hang up I have right now is my release which is most likely affected by the glove. Hurts after about 20 shots. I am sure this glove would be fine for anyone with a lower poundage bow, or if you already have callouses on all three of your fingers.

          I bought this glove out of sentimate towards Fred Bear, however I am glad I did as it feels, looks, and works wonderfully. I am still "breaking it in" as I don't shoot as often as I would like, but I feel it will feel just as natural on my hand as any shooting glove I've ever owned.

                  This glove is ok, but for the price, I think you can do better. It is well-constructed, but the leather is quite stiff, and only of average quality. I wear a medium in most other gloves, and the fingers on this one were tight enough that it was uncomfortable to wear for long.
