Grips ?

Maybe you should tell the negatives you have heard.Every grip fits each individual differently, and personally I like the narrow grip of the Martin, very comfortable.

The leather wrapped grip is really sweet. I thought it was one of the best new ideas for 2006 bows

I have the Slayer Extreme as well as other Martin models. I have grown rather partial to the Slayer due to its great balance and feel in my hand. You have a choice of grips. I know you can find the proper grip that will best fit your hand and feel for the bow.
Rest assured the Slayer is great bow to shoot.

I agree, I really like the leather wrapped grip rather than grabbing cold metal in the early morning. Its also very easy to set in your hand consistently without any torque.

Grip

The Slayr had a 23 degree grip angle.
The new model Slayer Extreme has a 17 degree grip angle.

I have not shot the new Extreme (but I drew one back).
To me it holds real nice with the 17 degree.
It seems like a very nice bow.

Like others said (it's a personal choice) you need to find what feels good to you.

Well, what makes a good shooting grip and a good feeling grip is questionable. I really hate the Mathews grip. It is quite simply a personal thing. I have the Thermo grip II on both my Slayer Extreme and C4 SE. I think, they are great. I like to feel the position of the grip and never could with a Mathews.

I have owned several other bows. The Pearson, I had was too big and rounded. The '04 BowTech's I owned the same. I have a couple of Shrewd type of grips on the Mathews and BowTechs. Hoyts grips feel on the small side as well as PSE's. I like the Martin grip and will be a little upset with them if they change. The is one of the reasons I did go with a Rytera instead. If you like the others, you might like a Rytera better.

Basically, different strokes for different folks.
