Our shooting tabs are all hand made here in the USA by us, Paul and Annette.
Our tabs are all hand cut and stitched. We offer three sizes, Small, Medium and Large.
We have found that the most important aspect of correctly sizing a tab for a shooter is how tall the tab is from top to bottom. The tab faces are all very long, regardless of size, allowing them to be custom trimmed to truly fit the shooter.
Heights: Small 2 3/8" (60 mm) Medium 2 5/8" (67 mm) Large 2 7/8" (73 mm)
The string side face of our tabs are made from true Shell Cordovan from Italy. This face is approximately 1/16” (1.5mm) thick. The second backing face is made from a soft upholstery grade leather approximately 3/64” (1.2 mm) thick.
Cordovan leather has consistently proven itself to be an excellent choice for shooting tabs. This is because it is pliable yet offers a slick and relatively “hard” surface for the string to bear against while also being extremely tough and durable.
The upholstery leather used for the second face is also tough and durable, yet its soft back side provides comfort for the shooter’s fingers.
Our tabs are made with a thick leather plate approximately 5/32” (4.0 mm) thick that is fitted into the hand back towards the palm of the hand. This stiff plate helps to promote having a flat yet relaxed string hand. It resists cupping or clenching the fingers into a fist and thereby assists in consistently achieving a good release.
We use a flat cord that is double looped and a spring-loaded cord lock to secure the tab. This keeps the tab secure but very comfortable. The flat cord and cord lock allow adjustability but doesn’t “cut” into or restrict the fingers.
We now have colored flat cord so we can color match your tab to one of our Arm Guards, no extra charge. Just leave a note in "Special Instructions" or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make one up just for you.
