Default How many folks taped their nose at the world FITA Field Championship?

Just want to see if good archers have the same problem as some of us duffers.

I know Allen, Ben and Ty all tape up - Ty has to tape his lower lip of all things.

What is the purpose of taping the nose other than to make sure it doesn't fall off? Seriously, what is the tape for?

Prevents abrasions and cuts....generally prevents bloodshed!

Default Re: How many folks taped their nose at the world FITA Field Championship?

I recently had a physical, and the doc noticed a couple of nicks on my nose -- I had been tuning a new set of arrows to a bow, and, well, you know how that can sometimes whack your nose (or at least, it does whack mine sometimes).

Anyhooo... the doc got very curious. How often does that happen? Occasionally. Always the same place? Usually, low around the nostril, and sometimes at the bridge, depending on the mistake. Does it always break the skin? Not always, sometimes just abrasion, with no bleeding.

Doc takes out a lighted magnifying glass and studied my schnooz closely. Looked at it under different light, and saw evidence of the scar tissue from many little nicks.

THEN, he hit me with this:
Repeated irritation to skin can lead to SKIN CANCER, especially on thin skin like a nose, and especially since the nose already gets lots of abuse from the sun. And, since I am pretty white, and lived much of my life at 9000 feet (summers) and 5000 feet (winters) during a time when there was no sunscreen, AND since my brother has pre-cancer removals annually for the same lifestyle...

The doc told me to ALWAYS tape my nose. So, now I do (mostly), using a thin, breathable athletic tape as a sort of second skin. A hassle certainly, but better than the big C...

So PLEASE be careful, and don't take any chances.

So we are changing Jimmy Durante's famous line from "That's not a banana, that's my nose" to "that's not my nose, it's tape." I don't know, but it just doesn't have the same ring to it......proof that archery isn't as funny as a big nose a a husky voice....

I don't usually have a problem but carry a couple of bandaids in my wallet in case. I have spattered my glasses a few times. And my neighbors; bad manners. Small tied on nock sets are less hazardous than the brass ones. - lbg

I believe Trillium endorses Scotch Brand Transparent tape, right Eric?

I've been having this same problem now for over a month....I changed the way I shoot and now will it the very outside edge of my nose causing a small cut just about the size of a tic tac after the scab comes up.

At first I thought it was a nock so I went to a brass nock kept rotating it thinking it was the sharp edge around the center,then thought itnwasnthe nock indicator but no.
