Product Description:

Though considered an essential component of archery tackle in many parts of the world, the thumbring was until recently virtually unknown by western archers. "One of the effects of a thumbring is to help redristribute some of the pressure experienced when drawing a bow. No matter which style of releases is used - three-fingered release, thumbring, pinch draw-a heck of a lot of the pressure weight of the bow is concentrated in the small angle of the string just prior to release. At a hefty bow weight, say sixty, eighty, one-hundred pounds, you're going to want some relief. That's why most people wear finger tabs or a shooting glove. The thumbring serves the same purpose." Kay Droppedrayer
