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

I prefer a tab. Better feel of the string

 :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
