What is a sling in archery?
A bow wrist sling is a piece of elastic that wraps over the back of your bow hand and allowing you to fire without having to grasp the bow at all. When you shoot, the bow leaps forward, but the sling retains it firmly in your grip during the shot. This allows me to totally relax my grasp and not even be concerned about catching the bow in my hand.
