What wrist slings do you guys use? Was looking at Slingitcustoms but don't seem to find any reviews about it.

I’ve had SlingItCustoms do a bow wrist sling, bow sling, and a lanyard for my release. I’ve been very happy with all of them, and wouldn’t hesitate to order again.

I don’t get the wrist sling. I never left my bow drop completely from my hand. I’m not a target guy. Opinions definitely welcome

I actually break all the rules with mine. When it runs over my bow hand it's a little snug when my hand is just perfect. My groups have really shrunk, Is it against every rule there is yes! But needs must

Get one made from paracord not leather or hard tubeing. Keep it loose enough that you can get a gloved hand in and out with out forceing. It only serves ONE purpose, to catch the bow if it happens to get away from you. I call them a cheap insurance policy.
Pardox makes some nice ones for about $12.

I honestly don't know lol. I think my gt500 has a bling sling from 2009 or 2010. My reign 6 and Elite Envy have slings i bought from a random place on eBay but the slings are really nice so I guess they are a reputable company I just cant remember who I bought them from. I remember the name xforce girl I think from one of the transactions.

i've never shot a bow without a sling in 48 years of shooting, so some of mine are pretty old. most recent purchase is probably 8 or 10 years ago, bought from a young lady on this site that was selling them in the classifieds. made from para-cord, with a thick leather tab to mount them under a stabilizer. they work great, look great and a comfortable because they have plenty of adjust-ability for room for a glove on your bow hand. i especially like them because thay are thick and substantial. i don't care for the single string or light leather starps that you see sometimes.

I don’t use a wrist strap, but have bought more than a few SlingIt Customs lanyards for releases. Great product, great customer service, and last I looked, free shipping.

made my own with 550 cord, no issues, I run it loose. It runs through the riser, not attached to the Stab mount.

I also made my out of 550 cord and it works great. Cabelas has a video on YouTube on how to make it and it was really simple.

SlingIt does great work, just seems to take awhile to get it.

Everybody and their makes wrist slings today. I haven't seen anything better than the next except if wanting personalized - color to match bow or whatever. Finger slings are seen more with target shooters. One in California has bow company medallions - mine, Pearson.

I learned to make my own, but it sort of got out of hand. I make these by the box full and donate them to 4H.

I just make my own as well. If you look on Amazon or eBay, you'll find paracord in all kinds of colors. Then you can watch a few videos on YouTube that shows you how.

Bling slings were made by XForce girl( haven't seen her on here in sometime now). I have one on my current bow.

I use one from Jakt Gear along with their sling-a-ling. I like the magnetic system he has to keep the sling in tight when not in use.

I have one of hers on my Vengeance. Funny, I tried contacting her today to get one for my new bow, She had a real nice metal option in place of the leather. I've really gotten use to it and don't want to go back to leather. Hopefully, she responds.
