Re: Bowstring finger pads.
- I have made hundreds of strings at Pennsics over the years. I can't
ever remember being asked for No-gloves for an archer who could find a
glove that fits. I always stock No-gloves for the youth archer. I find
the young have coordination problems with tabs and gloves only come so
Some tips on installing No-gloves. They are best installed while the
string is being made. Pulling a string through them is very hard after
the end loops are finished. Serve the ends where the loops are, remove
string from jig, pull string through No-glove, put stirng back on jig,
close loops, center serve, slide No-glove into position. A large, heavy
paperclip works to pull the string through the No-glove. Common
dishwashing soap is a good lube that can be washed off. I will not
attempt putting them on a finished string. Holes are too small.
