    I'm not sure there really is a +/- either way as far as performance. Others can probably say for sure. I shoot a finger sling just out of preference. But, with that said, I've lost/forgotten my finger slings before. But with a mounted sling, you're less likely to have that happen..

    For me, with finger slings I can have them tight on my fingers, but loose on the bow itself. So I get the sensation of having a more secure grip then I really have. Getting the same sensation with a wrist sling would require the grip to be much tighter and possibly induce more torque.

    only when your shooting 3D and you hang your bow to go score and forget your still hooked up----embarrassing after you do it 3 or 4 times.
