Wrist Slings

The archery wrist sling is a piece of archery equipment that is one of the cheapest and simplest items to use and can also be the most important to your consistency and accuracy. The reason why a wrist sling or a bow sling is important is that it allows the shooter to shoot with a more relaxed hand. Many shooters prefer to shoot with an open hand while merely using the forefinger and thumb to support the bow. The wrist sling will ensure the bow is secure and will prevent any nasty accidents, a particular concern if you are shooting from a treestand. They may be made from braided paracord or a rubberized synthetic material but in each case they will attach you to your bow.

There are many different types of bow slings available for sale with a choice of colors (if that is important to you) and materials to ensure comfort and reliability. A huge selection is available below allowing you the opportunity to protect your bow from damage and keeping it secure in your hand.

Shooting a bow without a wrist sling or a bow sling requires the bow grip to be grasped slightly more tightly than when the security of the sling is attached. Whenever a shot is taken, no matter how smooth or vibration free the bow is purported to be, there will be slight movement of the bow. Without a sling the possibility of the bow twisting out of the hand is real and the last thing you want is your valuable bow falling from your grasp and getting damaged.

The natural movement of a bow after the shot has been completed is to fall forward. The tendency for the archer, particularly someone who is new to the sport, is to try to catch the bow and prevent it from going through this movement. Trying to prevent the bow from falling forward often results in the bow being torqued by the archer as they anticipate the forward movement and grip the bow more tightly. The bow sling will allow that forward movement to take place and encourage you to shoot with a more relaxed hand.

Although the sling has been advertised above as being a bow wrist sling, there are some variations to how they look and perform and there is a technical difference between a bow sling and a wrist sling. It is also possible to buy a finger sling which is a smaller version of the wrist sling that is less obvious in the hand while shooting.

The basic difference between the wrist sling and the bow sling comes down to where it is attached. The wrist sling attaches to the wrist and it is then wrapped around the bow with a hook that attaches back onto the line of the sling. It can be easily adjusted so that it is comfortable and provides enough play between hand and bow.

The bow sling is attached to the bow at a point just below the grip. This type of sling will allow the bow to jump forward after the shot which is something that the archer or bow hunter will become used to over time. Leaving around ¾” of slack between the strap and the wrist will allow this to happen and the sling will naturally catch the bow as it moves forward.

The finger sling is most often used for target or 3D shooting. It is less substantial than the bow or wrist sling and so the shooter should be virtually unaware that it is there. This will mean that the sling will not interfere with the shot. It provides the backup of securing the bow while also allowing it to move freely during the shot process.
