    I have a Helim and want to put a torqueless grip on it.  My question is, if I do not want my draw length changing at all, should I go with the Low or Medium wrist?  Which one matches most closely with my stock walnut grip?
    Thanks

    I will try to keep this short, I know the god here will answer this and if I do to much I will hear about it on PM’s.

    Medium wrist if you are trying to stay with what is generally like Mathews.

    Grips like those found on Mathews bows can make shooting a low wrist grip very difficult. The little bump in the middle of the stock grip can cause the bow to twist in your hand at the moment of the shot. I learned to shoot Mathews grips with a medium wrist, but I wasn’t as accurate that way. So, I switched to another grip. A good number of Mathews Pro shooters have done the same thing. A low wrist is much more ‘repeatable’ than a high or medium wrist. It’s much easier to feel you’ve got your hand on the bow the same way every time with a low-wrist grip. The lo-wrist grip, combined with a tilted hand, aligns the grip in the ‘pocket’ of your palm. And if you’ve got the grip in the ‘pocket,’ you shouldn’t have to worry about torque because this is a very neutral way to hold
    the bow.

    If you read on the Torqueless site they explain their medium grip is close to the Mathews stock grip.

    Yep I read their website but the pictures they show are of the old style wood grip so I wasn’t sure if that would have an effect.  I just want to know if either a low or medium is going to change my draw length in any significant way.
    Thanks

    Its about repeatability and consistency. This time, TopGun is spot on … low wrist…although his comments seem to be a plagiarism of Dr. Mark Timney’s article.

    The Low wrist style like the Focus grip I have on my MR7 and it’s fine. I had it on the Z7 Mag and I took it off. I put the Torqueless medium wrist on it and I’m more consistent. It just feels more stable and comfortable.  I feel each bow has a different balance or grip balance to it and it’s a personal judgement.

    I recently purchased a used Apex 8. I also shoot with a low grip. I have had a problem with bow torquing in the past. Will the Focus grip work on the Apex risers?
