    I've always like the smaller grip. What I don't like is the cheap sheep skin or what ever they call it. It lasted a whole three shoots. I replaced it with Limb Saver Installation Vibration strips made of rubber. Works great.

    Any type of rubber grip sucks. I don't know why it's even called a grip. You're not supposed to grip the bow.

    I agree with Barry. I don't even think of it as a grip and I like it featureless and boring. I practice wearing a thin glove if my hand gets cold.

    If your holding the grip your not shooting right anyway! An archer's tee is the only way you should be shooting. The grip is there just to make it pretty.

    I never said I was shooting the thing. While holding the bow, the metal is cold, while the bow is being drawn and is cradled in my my palm the cold metal transfers through the leather to my hand. Sometimes I have to hold the bow an hour as there are deer coming and going. I like to be nocked, cocked, and ready to..........ROCK! But, not with cold hands. And yes I wear gloves. I still like the skinny handle though.
