Been looking at these Shrewd grips for my Mathews LX as I have been thinking about making my grip narrower and would hate to destroy the wood grip on it now. Is anyone using this Shrewd grip (either the aluminum or the Derilyum) on their bow,if so, let me know what you think.

Thanks
Vince

grip

I put a shrewd grip on my friend's mathews monster. It made a big differance. Just heat the wood grip with a blow dryer to remove it. Also take a look at the mathews focus grip. goodluck

The shrewd grips are great. Like said above use a blow dryer and on the wood grip then pull on it from the bottom and it should come right off with no damage.

Shrewd grips

Personally I prefer the feel of the aluminum grip. It just 'feels' better to me. If I used one on my hunting bow I would probably go with the delrin because it will be warmer in the winter. Think about what feel you like in a grip - do you prefer the feel of a machined aluminum grip like the PSE's or Hoyt have or do you like the feel of the synthetic like you can find on the Bear bows. Pay no attention to how these other brands feel in your hand - simply how the material of the grip feels to you.

You won't go wrong with Shrewd.

They do fit snug, you would need to decide if you were to want a low or standard heel, the standard heel has about the same grip angle and the original Mathews grip.

I've been shooting Mathews pretty much since the begining, but one reason I stayed with them was the fact one could only get a Shrewd grip for Mathews at one time. Of the things that really mater in archery, the grip is tops.

That said. I have also rasped a Mathews grip to get pretty much the same result. Just rasp way the profile to get it lower, and keep the back square to the target (eliminate the slope side to side) Then sight the string and mark the center line. Lay out parallel lines to either side to give a 1/2-5/8" total width, and rasp and sand the sides out of the way and blend them in. Takes ten minutes or so, and the end result is very accurate and warm.
