.......... what a difference it makes! I've been shooting my Mathews Outback for 3 years now and I love the bow- quiet, nice draw, highly reliable........... the only thing that was bugging me a little was the very aggresive angle of the grip that came with the Outback when I purchased it. I kind of "adjusted" to it, but the steep angle caused me to flex my wrist downward in order to maintain good palm contact with the grip. This in turn, left me prone to sometimes torqueing my bow on the shot due to the "less than strong" position of my wrist. Well, last week I ordered a grip from Jager Archery in CO, and it is just as sweet as pie! It has a rubber inlay where your hand contacts the grip- adding tack and reducing the chance for slippage. The angle of the grip from the base up to the throat is much less aggresive than the grip that came with my Outback, and this is exactly what I've been looking for! The rubber inlay is a bonus..... Here's what my new grip looks like: [img]http://www.jagerarchery.com/gripsjune07/mathews%20drenalin%20lv%20sm.jpg[/img] You can barely make it out in the photo, but the black on the back of the grip where one's palm contacts the bow, is actually rubber! It's the nuts!! No slipping with hunting gloves on- I've already tried it, the tacking properties of the rubber are far superior to that of the wood grip I used to use. My groups have already tighten up & I've only been shooting with it for 3-4 sessions at this point. With everything we worry about as archers (arrow type & weight, type of BH, how many lbs. of pull to use, type of bow, sight, arrow rest, peep or no peep, type of release.... etc.. etc....) It never really struck me until this past weekend that the GRIP is really the [b]only[/b] part of the bow that comes into direct contact with an archer's body (kisser button aside). The difference is remarkable. 'Dawg
