    Hutch put one on my 2010 Pantera. I liked it as I like the harded feel on the grip then the basic thermal grip rubber type. Looks much better too! East to replace.

    I used epoxy, so the grip would actually be hard to remove in case of second thoughts. The wooden side plates (made of curly birch) are much simpler than in a genuine Thermal Elite Grip, which I believe would need machining to produce. I needed to fill the space below the side plates before putting the dark brown leather wrap on the grip. I used pieces of thick, hard leather that I cut to shape for this purpose - could have been wood also. This is shown in the pics below. Then I simply glued the self-made side plates on the brown leather wrap. It is somewhat brutal construction in my opinion, but it works and the side plates have stayed well in place. The bow is no longer in active use, though.
