    Thanks for the information on replacing the grip. As they say a photo is worth a thousand words, and your’s definitely made replacing a grip easy. I put a Torqueless grip on my Switchback and it was very easy to install and will see how I like shooting it when the weatherstipping sets up.

    Thanks for the info! took the grip off my Drenalin in about 5min. cleaned it up and now bow torque is virtually eliminated! I don’t know if I will get a new grip yet. More or less just cosmetic. If it is cold I will have gloves on. I hunt mainly for food but will stick a trophy sized buck if i get the opportunity!

    Thanks for the post, but this did not work for either my Z7 or my Monster 6. The dealer and I spend hours on each one. In the end they had to be broken and pried off. I had to the grip so hot you could hardly touch it. Then I had to continue heating the grip to get the wood that ripped off the grip out of the glue.

    What a tough process. My new grips have much less glue in case I ever want to get them off.

    :D Vince have done more than I care to think about…never had one broken…some have been stubborn but the key is to heat slowly so heat reaches riser…heating to quick wont reach glue..

    Thank you so much for this post. I am all thumbs when it comes to stuff and hate the thought of breaking something. I used this method on my Z7 and had the old grip off and new grip on in less than a half and hour. I enjoyed doing it myself and feel a great deal of accomplishment, even on a little task. Thank you for the post.

    Awesome post. I was scared I would mess something up and didnt want to remove the grip myself. After reading this post, it was as if I have done it a hundred times. Thank you for the post and illustrations. My new focus grip is on and drying as we speak. [=}=]
