I really like the feel of my wood grip but I started thinking you don't see many using them anymore and you definitely don't see them when they are shooting spots. So I'm just curious who is still using their wood grip and how many have switched to a different grip. If using a focus grip or Hoyt 180 just put that under other and reply in thread.

I like the fact that a wood grip feels much warmer than an aluminum riser on a chilly October morning, and it gives the bow a nice look, with today's bows even the wood grips don't seem to thick in the hand, not like the bows from years ago...

My Katera has wood sides but ultimately I've got that open hand hold and sitting in the web of my hand so as much as I love wood for a number of reasons its kind of a non issue . But that's my hold so...

Both my bows have a "self grip" and I find that the easiest to shoot.
My hunting/3D bow is a Mathews Prestige
and my target bow is a Conquest 4
Both grips are exactly the same and I like that.

Hunting isn't an issue for me because my bow just sits on a hanger till I'm ready to pick it up to shoot. My hand doesn't get cold in 5 minutes. If I had to hold it all day that would be a different story.

Google TorqueLess Grips. Dave makes many different grips and side plates. He is an artist at it.

I prefer TorqueLess Grips on all my bows. I do not have one at this time on my primary bow but I hope to get another one soon.

Here's some pics of a few TorqueLess Grips I've owned over the years.

My PSE Firestorm has an awesome wood grip. I wish I had one like it for my Bear Mauler. It fills the hand well and you don't feel any need to grip it at all. I shoot nearly open-handed and the grip sits well in the palm. I've never understood why so many people on here seem to prefer to shoot w/o any grip at all or with just a tape wrap.

Both my carbons have wood side plates now. I tried the wrap on the target bows and did not care for it.
