    Have any of you every used the torqueless grips. Do they actually keep you from torqueing?

    are you talking about the torqueless.com bow grips? If so I ordered one for my Bowtech and I love it, big difference it made. Just keep in mind the mediums have a large hump in the grip whereas the small have a str8 spine

    Wheels I think this fella that shoots at the shop I go to and it's really strange thing to see. It moves with your hand if that is what I'm thinking is a torqueless grip.

    Chelleo, the one your thinking of is the Van Handle Death Grip, vanhandle.net
    Wheels, here are a few custom grip makers.
    www.torqueless.com
    Tronjo or Ron Hartl of Hartl's Custom Grips, can be contacted over on AT
    Gripwerks, mike@gripwerks.com, 508-867-5165, He uses some of the nicest birds-eye and tiger stripe maple you'll see.
    For many, the slimmer you get the grip the better. I use the Shrewds or shoot of the riser, and have made one from a walnut "blank" I got from tronjo. I'm not a fan of stock mathews grips. For me, slim is in. Just how much more do you want to beat everybody by anyway? :biggrin1:

    Torqueless is just a name. You can still torque it as easily as any other grip.
    However, because it's slimmer than a lot of stock grips, it does help reduce torque.
    The finish is very nice. But, I prefer the Hartl grip over the Torqueless. Also known as the Tronjo grip. That's his name over on ArcheryTalk.

    It comes down to feel and which one you prefer. They can help but there is no guarantee.

    I put one of the www.torqueless.com grips on my Icon. It's way better than the Mathews original grip, but IMO it's not as good as the schrewd metal replacement grip.

    However, it is a lot better looking.

    Thanks for all the replies. I was told they are thin, but the Alpine grip was thin too and those who were involved in the Alpine conversations know I was torqueing the crap out of that thing. I will look into them, thanks:biggrin1:

    Look at the top 4 target bows from Mathews. They either think thin is better or are just giving people what the've been asking for. :noidea: There's got to be something to it.

    I noticed in 5 spot league that there are quite a few people shooting without grips, right off the riser. And, if you look at the 2007 Bowtech's you'll see that the back of the "grip" is actually the riser. There are just 2 little side panels of wood screwed to the sides of the riser to make the "grip" area a little beefier.

    I used to torque my '06 Allegiance a little left. I replaced grip with a Shrewd grip, which is much thinner, and my once in a while 'left' shots went away.

    Coincidence ?

    Only the Shadow knows...:noidea:

    I've not noticed that on the 2007 Mathews target bows. The grip on my '06 Ovation is really big and wide... I'm considering changing it because I like the Shrewd grip on the Alleginace so much.
    You have a bit older Apex, right ? How is that grip set up ?
