    they look good if you match your string colors or bow accessories, i cant honestly say that i shoot better with one, i often catch myself not even using it.......but they look sweet

    If you are looking for a legal back up to a bow hunting "oops I missed and made my target angry" side arm, might I recomend this. http://www.sogknives.com/outdoor/gear/spirit-knife.html
    It can be easily attached to a walking stick and voila, you own personal spear which IMO would give you beter odds than throwing your bow.

    Even a good knife would better at that point IMO.

    Default wrist sling or not?

    Here's one I have on order, but all black with the ivory skulls. Two other skulls are available, transparent white and chrome. I also have on order a black and flo green wrist sling and matching binoculars strap.

    Would this be saying I'm a head hunter?

    Years ago when I shot a lot of field and target I used a finger sling. That's back when bows had more vertical limbs and jumped out of your hand. As time went on I changed to the more conventional wrist slings. In 2010 I got my Alien Z and now have two Alien Nemisis. I was going to get a custom wrist sling, but then thought better of it. I like the sleek lines of the bow itself so, WHY? Being as these parallel limb bows just don't move at the shot I can't see cluttering it up.

    If I still hunted I'd probably have one on just for those shots from a treestand, but for target and 3D I'd rather see it kept clean.
