    Finger sling vs wrist sling?

    Just wanting to hear some thoughts on shooting with a finger sling versus shooting with a wrist sling. Ive always shot a wrist sling, but Im seeing a lot more shooters using finger slings now...what are the advantages? Thanks.

    I have always used a wrist sling, and just tried a finger sling the other day...I will stay with the wrist sling. I can see how a finger sling would be better for a target setup, but I also just changed to a Carter Target 3+ and I need my extra hand and with the finger sling, it was a lot harder to take it off than with a wrist sling. I'm sure after a while I could get use to it and it would feel good, but the wrist sling is just a lot easier for me. Also with the finger sling, it pulled my index finger more around the riser than I like and it felt like I was torquing with it.

    Thanks. I may still try one for myself, but Id say I'll stick with the wrist sling too.
