I have been shooting these proto types for over a year and love them.. I was the lab rat on these but liked them so much i never sent them back..haha I have Bob’s grips on all 4 of my bows and will continue to do soo…
These are cocobolo..
I used a belt sander, spindle sander, sand paper, and scotch brite for the rough finish. Then I used Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil along with steel wool for the final finish. I am by no means a woodworker but I was very pleased with how they turned out.
This fashion show is great, but most of us need some more explanation as to how this will affect our shooting. I too feel like the grip on my XT is introducing torque, and know I don’t grip it the same each time. All this makes my shooting more erratic than I would like.
I see all these variation in wrist angle and nose configuration. I would like to try out a grip with less torque, but how do you choose among all these variations? It isn’t very practical to buy a bunch and see which one fits best. I am wondering if any of these manufacturers have “demonstrator” grips that people could compare, buy the one that fits, and send the rest back. They could be plain versions for this purpose and the customer could order the nice fancy one once they knew which model works.
I would be fine with sending in a deposit or something to take the risk out of it for the manufacturer.
Anyone aware of a manufacturer that would do this?
