Product Description
Fitted Archer's Thumb Ring- Version G3 Fabricated to your Thumb's Personal Size

Using modern manufacturing methods (Computer Modeling & 3D Printing), it is now possible to have a custom-made thumb ring crafted exactly to your thumb’s shape!  Having a thumb ring that fits correctly will speed up training time, increase comfort and improve accuracy!

NOTE YOU MUST MESSAGE ME PRIOR TO ORDERING WITH YOU THUMB SIZE. I WILL THEN POST ANOTHER RING WITH YOUR EXACT SIZE.

 

What is a Thumb Ring?

A thumb ring is a piece of equipment designed to protect the thumb during archery.  This ring was often made of leather, stone, animal horn, wood, ivory, metal, or glass, and now even plastic.  A thumb ring fits over the end of the thumb, coming to rest at the outer edge of the outer joint.  A flat area extends from the ring to protect the pad of the thumb from the bowstring. 

 

 

How do you use a Thumb Ring?

When drawing a bow using a thumb draw, the thumb is hooked around the bowstring just beneath the arrow, and its grip reinforced with the first (sometimes second) finger.  The bowstring rests against the inner pad of the archer's thumb and the thumb ring protects the skin. MORE INFORMATION 

 

Why use a Thumb Ring?

This technique has a variety of advantages compared to traditional western style of releasing:

·         A thumb and two fingers are far stronger than three fingers allowing for higher draw weights.

·         Release is much more consistent allowing for greater accuracy.

·         The thumb ring draw is a very secure and stable draw; it can even be done from horseback.

·         Shorter bows can be used without worry of pinching your fingers between the string and arrow nock. This appears in horse bows and some compound bows.

 

Why use My Thumb rings over all other options?

There are many variations on the thumb draw technique in archery and almost as many thumb guards and rings. The G3 thumb ring has been developed after countless hours prototyping, testing, and improving. This thumb ring is a fusion of many traditional designs incorporating the best of each.

Our thumb rings are custom made exactly to your thumb's dimensions!

Each ring is crafted exactly to your thumb’s shape ensuring a perfect fit, while with other options you are left picking the closest available fit.  Having an exact fit will not only make the ring  much more comfortable, but will reduce training time while improving accuracy and consistency of your shot.

WE CAN ALSO MAKE ANY MODIFICATION TO THE RING UPON REQUEST. (Please private message for details)

Key features of the G3 design:

·         Perfect fit to your thumbs size! No more guess work on best fit.

·         Oval ring fit- The ring must be slid over the first joint of the thumb and then rotated 90 degrees to shooting position. This serves two functions:

1.   To lock the ring on your thumb when releasing the arrow

2.   To spread the load out over the entire thumb pad and knuckle

·         Curved interior- A generous radius has been put on ring interior to increase comfort at full draw, especially with heavy draw weights.

·         Knocking grove- Consistently hold the drawstring in the exact same position every time improving accuracy.

·         Recessed ridge on backside of ring to allow for natural movement of thumb during release

Simply measure your thumb like seen in the photos for width and height at the thickest part of your thumb (most often this is the first joint).  A custom thumb ring will be created to these measurements.

 

***Note: some sanding of the edges of the ring will be needed to truly get an exact fit.  This is unavoidable due to everyone's thumb being a little different***

*** Due to every ring being custom fabricated, returns are not accepted.  Measure twice, order once!***

All thumb rings are made from environmentally friendly PLA plastic, which is biodegradable. 

Any questions, please feel free to ask!  I’ll be more than happy to answer them!
