IFAA Executive Ruling - Barebow Finger Tabs

The IFAA Executive has received various queries about the legality of certain finger tabs for the Barebow Shooting styles.

The ruling by the Technical Committee and the Executive Council is as follows:

Many finger tabs show stitches on the inside of the tab, which may or may not be used by the archer to determine the hand position for each shooting distance. These stitches are an integral part of the finger tab design of the manufacturer. Such stitching, irrespective of design or how elaborate, is not considered to contravene Rule 1a of the Barebow Shooting style, provided that such stitching is an integral part of the manufacturer’s design. Any tabs with stitching or markings that are not part of the design but added by the archer, are considered illegal and such tabs may not be used in the Barebow shooting style.

Full details here.
