Default Built me a new style tab

A prototype tab I'm working on.

The DA3UT (Death Adder 3 Under Traditional).

It's the same shape as my split finger tabs, but without the arrow notch.

I'm using this one, and really like it.

My current 3 under design is oval shape in order to work either hand.
Attached picture is of the DA3US (Death Adder 3 Under Signature).

This new design is shaped like the split finger tabs, and has to be built for right or left.

Some folks like the more traditional shape of the split finger better.

Personally speaking, the newer design looks like it would work better for how I like my tab shaped.

(I wish I had bought several of my current tab before the company redesigned/ruined it.)

I got my template made for the large size.
I really like the way this one turned out.
Right hand large. 1/8" string walking stitching.

I got a quick turn around on Rick's new 3-under tab. Well made and sturdy.

I was a bit sceptical about how it would perform due to it being a little thinner than my old tab, but after shooting two rounds yesterday at the Total Archery Challenge in San Antonio, my concerns were unfounded.

It afforded me a very clean release and the usual wear that I feel on my ring finger was gone. Very pleased with it. The spring-loaded cinch ring is easy to adjust and most secure.

I wish I could report its magical effect on my shooting, but alas I have more work to do!

If you need a new tab, get one. You'll be pleased.

Thanks for a great tab, Rick.

Todd
