    I’m getting the rootbeer Mustang set up for outdoor. I’m almost done. All I have to do is take the Torqueless grip off the blueberry Mustang and transfer it to the rootbeer. As I’m sliding it off, I hear a “crack!” and find I’m holding a bow in one hand and half a grip in the other. The “crack!” was the grip splitting.

    I have to say, Katie handled it very well. She gave me the “look of death”, stalked to the door, then turned to say, “Well, Mom, looks like you owe me a grip.” So much for my Mother’s Day dinner out. We’ll be baking chicken at home and ordering a new grip for Katie.

    So, which Torqueless grip do you think will look best on a rootbeer bow? Here is the page with the colors: http://www.torqueless.com/ourgrips.htm

    She likes:
    Navajo, Blue Moon (I think this one is better for her blueberry bow), and Autumn.

    I like:
    Autumn, Jarcaranda Earth, and Cocobolo light.

    She had the black and silver (looked better on the blueberry).

    You could try some Elmers wood glue, that stuff is stronger than wood itself once it dries.

    Cocobolo light 8D

    The Walnut 111 would also look great. [=}=]

    But I went with the Cocobolo light.

    Katie obviously likes Blue. I voted for Navajo because it has the red-tones to compliment the Rootbeer and the Blue as an accent. Cocobolo Light it nice but when you get two colors close but not exact, in artist’s terms its called a Near Miss. The yellow in the Autumn just doesn’t go with Rootbeer and I can’t think of Yellow accessories to ‘punch’ it up.

    I think Navajo, if you get blue accessories like Sure-Locs custom trims for sights, and blue anodized stabilizer, etc. It could be a knock-out. JMHO [=}=]

    Murdoc – I didn’t think about the Winewood. I guess I thought it was more of a burgundy, but the pics didn’t appear so.

    Brian – Good point on the near miss. With Katie being an artist, she’d notice something like that. And, yes, her favorite color is, and always has been, blue.

    I like Jade, too, but putting an 80 pound Lab on a bow just isn’t practical. :whistle

    I voted for the blue moon, but either that or the Navajo would be nice IMHO [=}=] (Yes, blue is my favorite color too)
