Default NO GLOVE

Do any of you guys use the no-glove on your bow string for your fingers. I was thinking about trying it out

I haven't tried it ,
but it does look interesting . I have to wonder if it makes any noise though , those finger beads look like they can rotate on the string .

I tried them once, a very long time ago. I did not like them. They forced me to put more finger on the string than I like, and they rolled on me.

Also, adding weight to your string can slow your string and you can technically cause a change in your shaft spine, usually an increase in spine.

No gloves weigh 40gr; that's a lot of weight to put on your string at the most critical point. Will definitely change your arrow spine, probably by one size at least.

40 grain! That is a bunch of weight to put on any bowstring, especially a recurve or longbow string. Back when I tried them, not much consideration was given to weight and speed, other than it was common that shooters commonly preferred to shoot heavy shaft setups. Therefore, I never really knew the weight of the "No Glove."

When I read or hear about shooters that start having flight and grouping problems after they have added certain accessories to the bow, or added such features to their shafts such as cresting, painted or otherwise, I often wonder if they may have been at the min or max line on shaft spine, and it only took a bit of added weight or increased energy to change the spine of their shaft.

Knowing that certain changes can alter shaft spine is why I choose a shaft for compounds that is middle-of-the-road, and a bit weaker (spine) shaft for a recurve depending on what weight I know I will be adding e.g., string silencers, brush buttons, double nocks, serving diameter, limb covers, etc, that will reduce the energy of the bow. More critical for low draw weights and Dacron string.
