    I had the same problem as soon as it started to get warm this year. I was told to get a hair dryer and heat up the grip and remove it. Take some fletch tite and reglue the carbon looking inserts on the side and then criss cross some glue accross the back of the grip section of the riser and reapply grip, streatching the fake leather toward the cut out for the insert. I did this in May and have shot 2 to 3 days a week since and my grip hasn't moved. give it a shot if ya want to keep the saddle back.

    I hope not. They're still too big now. If you want a larger grip why not contact one of the makers of aftermarket grips. They'll probably make you a wooden or plastic one. Then get ready for sticker shock.

    Not for my large manly hands. I want a hunting bow with the same grip as a shadowcat and shorter ata too. Don't expect the whole lineup to be altered, just one model please.

    I was looking into grips for the pse and it was a bit of a shock alright, I'm not paying $100 for a grip!

    I took Martin's tech's advice and I put Krazy glue on the back of the grip and on the leather where the strips go. Haven't been able to shoot yet but it's gonna be back in the high 80s this weekend and bow season is still on. Hopefully i'll get a chance to have the bow in my hand instead of on the hook. That's pretty much where shes been for the last 2 weekends.

    Oh I forgot to mention. When I spoke with Martin I asked about the leather on the leading edge of the grip in the catalog pictures. They were sending me 2 new grips and I wanted to know if they covered the front. He said that was a misprint in the catalog and by the time they noticed it the catalogs were already printed. So....I guess no front grip, or that might be the new 2012 grip he told me about.
