I keep seeing these arm guards, Aparently you all have not shot a bow for long,. If you have you will not need these arm guards. If you shoot correctly you arm will not be in the way of the bowstring. People who get the armstring bruising are not holding the bow riser correctly. I only use them to keep the string from hitting my loose oversized clothing I may use to hunt.

Even professional archers wear arm guards. Whether you are wearing clothing that could get in the way or not, arm guards are a precautionary safety measure and should be used regardless of level of experience.

Have you figured a way to tie it on yourself, or do you have help with that? That's one detail I've had trouble with in similar projects.
