This is a quick and dirty demonstration of how to tie a finger sling for Olympic and FITA target archery recurve bows. This version uses a loop of shoelace and two cow hitches tied in the bight of the loop...
For those not familiar with finger slings, the sling is used to facilitate a completely open bow grip, as used in high level target archery. When the arrow is loosed, the bow is allowed to drop forward out of the open grip and is caught by the sling. A good bow sling is all that keeps your super expensive FITA recurve bow from dropping to the ground. The bow is not shown in the demo.
There are commercial finger slings you can buy but the simple shoelace version is preferred by many top archers. There is an alternate version using clove hitches. A video of it can be found at http://www.texasarchery.org/L1/Docume... .
