    I agree I do not understand with all the¬†advanced engineering Mathews has they still keep sending their ¬†bows out with those blocks of walnut they call a grip.¬† on my z7 extreme the first thing I did was take the grip off and cut a 1/2″ off each side and refinished¬† now its fits good

    This thread was started to have some attention to making options to the Focus. Mainly cause the draw length is long on most bows and Focus grip works if the draw length is just right. If it is a bit long it would work if it a mid wrist grip like the factory wood grips. Since it was introduced it has caught on but I saying it could better received with a few options.

    Just shoot the Focus grip enough until you’re comfortable with ¬†it and you’ll get to thinking it’s beautiful how it shoots.

    I like the look and feel of the newer Mathews wooden grips myself. ¬†At one point I had a focus grip on my Z9 (it is black and didn’t want a wooden grip on it), a Torqueless on my Reezen (had a thicker stock wooden grip), and the stock wooden grip on my Helim. ¬†I liked them all, but I wanted to have a constant grip, so I put Torqueless grips on all of my bows. ¬†I am very happy with the way the torqueless feel on all four of my bows.

    I must say that posts of Mathews grips being too fat confuses me. For quite some time now they have been much thinner. They’re no wider than any other grip out there.

    On other forums, for example, You’ll hear of Hoyt shooters loving the grip on their bow and hating the Mathews. If one would compare, they would find them almost identical, as this picture comparing a Creed to a Spyder illustrates.

    The difference is not the width but how the body is curved for one. The hoyt has a bit more nose to it. The other is the wrist placement when at full draw. The hoyt is more a high wrist compared to the Mathews being a low/medium wrist. The Focus is a low wrist placement. To me the low wrist is harder to shoot consistently.
