    This will make a lot of sense :). I had slings on both bows and after several years decided to change stabilizers on one of them. The new stabilizer has a short shaft so the threads won’t reach with the sling on so I took it off. Been shooting one bow with a sling and the other without. Makes no difference either way.

    I have a wrist sling on my compound bow.
    I plan on adding one to my recurve.
    It can't hurt?

    That's what I use, and haven't had any issues with it. Like someone above said, it makes me not torque the arrow any more than it already is coming off the string.

    I have never shot without one. I think it would feel weird not having one.
    But it is all personal preference

    For hunting situations, I took mine off years ago and never looked back. I hated having to fish my hand through it when I picked my bow up off the hanger - especially when I had thicker/warmer clothes on.

    Now if you're looking at it from a sheer accuracy standpoint - there's a reason most target archers shoot with either a wrist or finger sling. It does make a difference in that it allows you to fully relax your hand and not worry about gripping the bow before, during or after the shot.

    However, I'm not a target archer and I don't care about that. Down with the wrist sling. :lol:
