I guess it took me about 10 shots. Once I got a few off I just didn't think about it any more. Everyone is different. Just shoot it lots and you will be fine.

I've been shooting with one for 1 1/2yrs and had one come untied while release was hooked and another one come untied while drawing back and punched myself in the lip[:@], I didn't tie it a young kid at the shop did, another guy tied a new one for me, took about 2 months before I felt comfortable again.

I've been tying loops on for about 6 years now and I never really think about it. I never had one come off yet. I'm sure that one day something could fail and I'll smack myself in the mouth. Oh well.....

I tied mine on myself and superglued the knots and the first shots I was kinda scared, but after a couple shots I trusted it and its been fine ever since.

When I first tied one on I was very watchful and a little sceptical but i continued and was very comfortable within a very short time.
I am shooting better than off the string , it is now second nature to look
over the loop for a good inspection prior to every shooting session and during..
Have had no problems using or issues with the loop, this is my second season shooting with it..
So just make part of the ritual bow inspection prior to every outing or shooting session ..
Enjoy
