    Default Grip

    Well here is my dilemma. When I start to shoot every thing is fine. But as the temp fluctuates or I get balmy or sweaty my grip changes and is not consistent with my form. It makes me think that I need a glove or maybe baby powder to keep things constant ? what do you do ? I'll take any suggestions on this.

    Thanks Todd

    I keep a strip of grip tape for skateboard decks on my grip and also a rosin bag like you use for pitching or bowling.

    Keeps my grip consistent and is a life saver during these hot times.

    If you are in your grip right and not torquing the grip you should be able to put greases on your hand and it won't ship. If you have trouble with the grip take it of. Years ago when they put plastics grips on bows we all would pull them off and throw them away because they make the grip to wide.

    If you stick to the grip, torque can happen. Find that grip (hold) that is the same slippery or dry and at least you'll be consistant. And consistant is what you really want.

    Golf gloves do work. Tim Gillingham always uses a glove. I placed rubber tape around my frip for this reason

    The better solution is to develop your hand placement (I don't like to use the word "grip") so that it is consistent wet or dry.

    I used to carry a travel size dispenser of Arm & Hammer deodorant/anti-perspirant. It does a pretty good job of keeping your palm from sweating. When Mathews came out with the Apex line with the integrated grip I quit using the stick. My hand slides to the same spot each time whethter its sweating or not. When I put no-slip tape I would occasioanaly torque the bow so I took it off. I think that is why I shoot the Prestige and C4 better than the other bows I have had, easily repeated grip position.
