I've ordered a cordovan splitfingertab from Laszlo Varga (VLBB) in Hungary. The tabs are available in size L and size M, 78*78 and 70*70 mm. If you are unertain about your size he will send you a printable pattern, which helps you to decide. If none of them suits you there is still a customised size option. You also can order different thicknesses between 1.2 till 1.9 mm. I'm shooting the tab now for a week intensively.
the first thing I thought was.... how long does it take to feel really comfortable with the new tab and did I feel the string. I love to feel a string (who does not like it...). I don't want a tab that feels like mitts. My old tab feels like a part of my body and fingers. It was a "Martin SAM super archery mitt". After picking up the tab from the postoffice, I shot the tab at evening for about 3 hours and what shall I say: I put it on and it fits perfect. The first shot went well but the feeling was unfamiliar and strange. But after about 20 - 30 shots it feels more and more familiar and comfortable so I go on. After the 3 h and about 200 shots it feels like I had never used another tab.
Great work Laszlo really. This is my tab and I will never shoot another on. The release is quick, smooth and very soft. I'm really surprised how fast the tab feels normally to me because all other tabs I've tried need much more time or didn't work at all. Also the thickness of the cordovan Laszlo advised for my draw weight is perfect. I can feel the string realy good, it is exactly as I had imagined. Also the tab is build very solid. I ordered both without fingerspacers and the VLBB logo. Great Product.
Nice ! Simple but most essential. One problem for me I keep losing them in the field. So small and easily misplaced. I've owned many tabs you name it Black Widow,Seal skin, SAM ,etc. they are the bees knees but easily lost.😤

Back when I shot a tab, I really like Laszlo's tabs above most others. Nice review.
