I was contemplating no gloves (finger saver) but may try my mechanix gloves. I guess I should get my bow set up first but have been thinking about the whole package.

I like the mechanic 1 when they get wet they dry and don't hard'n like some gloves 2 they hold up better then other gloves 3 you can throw them in the washing machine to wash out the fish smell 4 they also a all around glove.

I think I will go the mechanix glove for now and see how she plays out. After that maybe no gloves. Can't see a tab or fingers being the answer.

Can't stand wearing gloves for anything. I think the no glover are gonna be nice this season. Save some blisters hopefully.

Finger slicks and a set of batting gloves is what I use. The gloves are because of the knocking point that I have installed rubs against my finger and by the end of the night it would be bleeding.

finger savers or just wrap some electrical tape around the strings or some cheap baseball gloves work best

Upsouth, ive been thinking about using some batting gloves. I have a good bit of em from softball tourneys when i get new ones.

How do you like them. I had my finger gashed open 2 weekends ago fron the line.

I've always wore gloves the to pull line quickly. Only issue is I go through about 2 pair a season but i shoot on avg 2 to 5 times a week. I assume since your from ga u shoot the hill. Need them on any of the lake with grass and clay.

No im way far south from the hill.

but same thing with the grass and clay down here. the line cut my hand from fighting a beaver that managed to grab ahold of the bank, them things know they have some holding power.

one of the beavers took a bite out of the trim of the boat!

sorry to revive such an old post..but just recently grabbed a PSE wave used...it has the orange finger savers on it...I like them but noticed that as I release and my fingers roll off the rolers it actually twists the line just a bit and the arrow literaly climbs up the wall of the rest..raising it up enough to be an issue...I guess i'll learn to compensate and try to be consistent in my pull off, but wanted to check with you guys and see if i'm doing something wrong with these little roller finger savers?

Maybe loosen them up a bit off the nock. Your string twisting shouldn't affect your arrow at all. The strung should just spin inside the nock.

thanks.. they seem to be tight..I was thinking about working them for a while so they don't grab the string..maybe a drop of silicone down in there as well? I believe they were factory installed..so i didn't know if i was making a false assumption about how they should actually work.

It's OK the
At they grab the string. If they didn't they slide out of position. String twisting is a natural result of shooting fingers. If you used a glove instead your string would still twist. That shouldn't be affecting your arrow at all.
