- Sep 15, 2013Taillear,
Thank you for the explanation, I can understand better their comments after your explanation. I do feel that describing someone that does shoot with a glove as being a "faint-hearted incompetent" is being a bit judgmental, though. But, that's just my own opinion, which may vary with mileage and use. Even if I do not agree with another person (or persons') beliefs or opinions, I will still respect them and try to see things from that view, because it often gives me new insights into things I have learned.

Rod, who posted the remark you quoted, is actually a very kind
individual. He's also a very knowladgable, dyed-in-the-wool, English
longbowman who holds steadfast to the traditional way of doing things.
Thus, his comment regarding a glove.
Others on PaleoPlanet make and shoot very heavy longbows. Their gear,
their knowledge, and their shooting style is such that a glove is not
needed. These individuals may have little patience with people who
feel that one is necessary.
PaleoPlanet is actually the best source I know of for wood bow making
and shooting, bar none. While some members simply make bows and use
them, other PP participants research historical practices and
artifacts quite thoroughly and are very skilled in ancient archery.
