    I’m just wondering how many of you guys and gals use the torqueless grips on your hunting bows. I’m also wondering if they are worth the money or not. I’m seriously thinking about the cocobolo 924. Steve I know you use them I saw your pics in the trophy room. Of course If I killed a 200 I would post it everywhere I could too :D :D :D :^O :^O :^O .

    Strange answer, but here it goes.

    I checked yes, worth the money, but I wouldn’t personally pay for one. I customize my grips myself. So easy that it’s ridiculous.

    But, definitely worth having on a hunting bow. I personally think that a good flat-sided grip is one of the most important items to add to a bow.

    I have two no’s so far, but I haven’t seen anyone give a reason why they aren’t worth the money. Please help me out. I don’t want to spend 45 bucks on something that isn’t worth it.

    Thanks for the reply Kev.

    Blood Bath,

    It WILL improve your accuracy if you torque your regular grip at all.

    If you have any experience with working with wood, do it yourself.

    The only hard thing about it, is getting over the idea that you might “ruin the grip.”

    I have done a few now and as soon as the new Drenalinn is home this weekend, that grip is getting flattened!

    Good luck, Kev

    I have a torqueless on all my bows, and love them! :X :X Improved my shooting, and made me more confident when taking the shot. :thumbup

    I seem to torque the standard grip. I have tried to do the good old fashioned hi grip, but it only works when I have it exactly the same. I have pretty thick palms :smt69 so it is hard for me to keep the same grip on the standard grip. That isn’t to say that I can’t keep it in the 10 ring :D I am just trying to get a few more X’s. I wouldn’t even know where to begin on shaping my own grip. I don’t have the right equipment for it I’m sure. Not to mention I’m pretty sure a belt sander is more expensive than a torqueless :D .

    I don’t have a torqueless yet :whistle , but I have a Tronjo on mine and love it…I like the way it feels smaller grip and yes it’s worth the $45.00. [=}=]

    I bought one for my SB, installed it & shot. Then I bought ‘em for my Conquest Light and LX. I’m convinced they are worth it . . . to me.

    thanks for all the advice, really thinking about ordering a torqueless! i’ve put about 500 rounds through my new dren already and by far the most accurate and consistent bow that i have owned (got rid of the xt for my dren) i just want to make this the most accurate bow that it can be and im willing to try out a different style of grip! especially now that im shooting in league for my first time! heres my dren so far…

    I broke down and ordered it last night. I bought the Cocobolo 942 medium with the competition nose. I will let you all know how it turns out :D :D :D . Oh and by the way, the wife yelled for like an hour :D :D :D . Anyone know a good make up gift that isn’t too expensive :D :D :oops: :oops: [-o| [-o| [-o|
