Anyone use a shooting glove for HFT, do they make a difference ? And what type do you use
Almost everyone uses a shooting glove of some sort for HFT, especially when you look at national or regional comps.
Makes a huge difference, prevents slipping down the peg and gives extra grip on supported positional. I wouldnt shoot HFT without one now.
Anschutz 109 for me.
pcp I use an Anschutz 109/110 but for boinger shooting I prefer a bit more "feel" so use a macwet.
Definitely gives a better grip on the shooting post (or tree for standers).
When used for unsupported shooting gloves will give a steadier hold, allegedly.
Anschutz for me too - they last ages!
Ian. the vast majority use a glove, the anshutz 110 is popular.
I used to use & still do on my other main rig an Anschutz shooting glove.
However, in the last week or so I've been using the sure shot BIO-GEL full finger glove, its like a motorbike glove, it's good to very good so far.
Sure shot, the bio gel gloves are near the bottom.
Thanks for all the advice
Looks like I am going to be asking for an Anschutz for Christmas!
The Anschutz 110 glove is a great bit of kit and will last you several years.
I have had mine for 4yrs now and shoot HFT almost every weekend and nearly every Wednesday evening in the summer (probably easier to count on one hand the weekend's that I don't shoot) and in all weather's and the glove stands up to all the abuse, rain, mud and tree's.
Because they are not leather the dye doesn't run in the wet (unlike one glove I had) and if the glove gets muddy just throw it straight in the washing machine (make sure you give it an extra spin dry).
My one has faded over the years but there are no tears or any sings of the glove failing.
One thing the glove helps to do, is it stops fatigue in the foward hand and gives you a more relaxed grip.
Great value for money.
Just a word of caution on the anschutz glove sizing...
Make sure you use the size guide on intershoot.
I followed it correctly, and I came up as a large. I certainly dont have a large hand. But the large glove fits perfectly.
I'd usually have just got a medium, and chances are that would have been too small.
So altho the size it suggested was bigger than I thought it should be, the glove fits perfect.
Good advice. I bought a medium which was fine in winter. But in summer I had to buy a large one as they do get a bit warm and your hand puffs up a bit so getting it on/off was tricky
Be prepared for the stink........my hand last weekend smelt like it had been up a tramps ar$e. Still they are washable (I turn my lining out to give it a proper wash)
I’m right hand so ordered a left hand Anschutz 110 from inter shoot, when I was on the website noticed they have trigger gloves so does anyone use one ?
When shooting a Boinger (always for a more consistent hold) and during the winter wgen shooting a pcp.
I do, as above really.
I use an anshutz 109 but in warm weather the sweaty hands make it hard to get off and back on
I use disposable vinyl gloves underneath the anshutz which stops the lining getting wet
I get a few weird looks and comments about prostate examinations but it works
I use an Anschutz trigger glove, I’m not sure what it brings to my game but I just like the feel of using a trigger glove.
If you get a glove you like, buy 2. Yes I know that's more expense. But there's a couple of good reasons why... firstly by alternating them they last twice as long before you have to buy another, and they do change design... and if you shoot a multiple day event, if it rains, you can have a dry one for the next day while the other dries.
Scotchguard type spray helps repel dirt and water, and wrapping gloves in toilet tissue if they are wet draws the moisture out rather than if you stuff it inside which draws the moisture in and dries the outside first.
I brought maestro design glove they do pairs winter and summer.Only becuz they made stretching material for my big hands and more forgiving becuz my hands swell due to high blood pressure
