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?

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!

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.
