    thats what I have been doing and was just wondering if there was a proper finger to use.....

    using the index finger leaves my Middle finger free to give the target the Double RODS, when it fools me on distance.....:laugh:

    I saw a picture of someone shooting a finger sling between their thumb and around BOTH the middle and index fingers pushed right up to the knuckles. If I can find the thread I was reading I'll post a link.

    I think a finger sling would make me want to grip my bow after the shot.:noidea:

    EXACTLY ! Once I tried one for a while I really liked it. It's like a 'wooby'... Makes you think you don't need to strangle the bow handle. For my thought process anyway...

    Middle finger and thumb for me too. I don't like how one sits on my index finger. All in all it's personal preferance.

    Bunny.... is yours not long enough to use your middle? would you like a longer one to try it?
