Wrist sling

I hope I don't get jinxed asking this question. I've shot bow for just over 50 years and never had a wrist sling. This included the days when bows actually recoiled. Lately I've considered one because in my old age I may absent mindedly lose my grip and I found a guy who makes some pretty good looking ones for a reasonable price. Has your sling actually caught your bow or is it more for show?

Hunting hobby ended, now I'm a fly fisherman!

Re: Wrist sling

If you are going to shoot with an open hand I would recommend one. I was shooting a new bow I had just brought home thru the crony before fully setting it up and had it jump out of my hand. I was lucky no damage was done but saw a guy shooting 3-d from the balcony at Valley Sports once who's bow jumped out and fell all the way down to the concrete floor, he wasn't so lucky!

Re: Wrist sling

I just take some BCY 24 D-lope cord and tie it through a hole in the riser. Works great.

The older I get the better I was.

Re: Wrist sling

Thin hemp rope will work well in that application PA.Bone. LMAO

An archer shoots his targets as far as he can. A bowhunter shoots his target as close as possible.

Re: Wrist sling

for years i used a small dog collar on my indoor bow, which was also my hunting bow minus the dog collar.

Here's one of my patented custom slings on a bow I sold recently, I didn't even charge the guy for it. A women in my archery league makes the braided custom slings and I may have her make me a few.
