Take the grip off. Shoot off the riser. No torque at all. Past that shoot how you feel comfortable. What works for someone else may not work for you.

BTW there are a lot of competition shooters..........


I was told that there are two ridges once the grip is off that are very uncomfortable to grip on the riser...but, a good idea. I'm past comfortable I guess, I want my groups tight and I'll be uncomfortable to get it. I appreciate the help Bob...


I have also seen guys take and use the replacement grip tape for a tennis raquette and wrap that around the riser. I once used the wrap from limp saver. Either way good luck. Don't get to caught up in the little details. Some times it helps to just put it down for a few days and then come back to it.

I had a mathews that gave me the exact same problems. I bought an Xforce the other day and you can just grab that sucker and shoot it without having to worry about your grip. Itll make you pull your hair out thats for sure. I got a buddy with a mathews going through the same problems.

From the advice given I've decided to replace the grip...now, I'm just looking at which grip I want to replace it with. The way the bow sets right now is awesome compared to some I have shot. I'm just more or less talking tightening my groups and stopping the arm slap, not so much for the kill, but just because I enjoy shooting tighter groups and don't want the string whacking me every third time I shoot. The current groups are good for deer hunting. I sure appreciate all the help from you guys...sometimes it's easy to forget how great this site is..

If you are hitting your arm that frequently , your draw length is defiantly too long . Where are you anchoring ? The grip torque is an issue too , but it could be related to the long draw length .
Strings will stretch , causing the draw length to lengthen too .
