    Default 2011 firecat grip problem

    Love the bow but the only problem i have with the bow is the grip it has came off twice. I was wondering if martin offers a better grip or even a wood grip to put on the bow the leather wrap and stick on carbon fiber inserts wont stay on any ideas or help would be great

    I would call martin cs and ask them what they would have you to do. They would tell you the best thing to do. And you could ask them if there is an alternative grip.

    are all the Martin grips glue-on? If not,it seems like there would already be a pre-drilled hole for the 2pc bolt on grip under the glued on grip. Just a thought

    Zebra grips look good, don't know if they'll fit the new grip design though. If somebody tries them, they should post a pic for everyone!
