Do you prefer a glove or a tab to shoot your bow? And why.?

 :yeah:
With my limited experience I like the tab better.. the glove I have is a cheap off the shelf one and that maybe the difference.

I like the tab best when practicing.  Feels like it gives better control.  It does seem to take a little longer for set up in a quick situation in hunting.  (a glove is on your hand and already set in place)

Tab, it's far easier to put a pinch between the cheek and gums.

I used to use a tab, but now I triple serve my string and shoot bare finger.

Never going back!

Glove.  For long practice sessions it protected my fingers better.  But maybe I just have soft delicate hands.

I think the tab is way better but if you are teaching someone how to use a bow, probably is better start with gloves

I shoot a tab, and my shooting is better.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.
