Re: grips

You're going to have to have one custom made by someone. To my knowledge, I have never been able to find after market grips for Bear bows. I had a Carnage and was looking for the same thing. Could never find one. I got used to it, and shot the bow very well. The grips on the new Bears are much slimmer. Cant wait to get my Motive 6!

Re: grips

Reminds me of the old Henry Ford saying about his automobiles a century ago or so. You can get any color, as long as it is black.

Nothing is form fitting in archery. If it fits that's good; if it doesn't look for another bow.
Of course, I learned with basketball. I adapted. It was the same size basketball, regardless of the size of your hand.

Re: grips

Yeti archery on AT makes custom grips. I don't know what models he makes them for, but his work looks to very good from the pics people post.

I just looked it up. He has a web sight.

Re: grips

Hartl's custom grips makes grips for violin bows...? The other two dont make grips for any Bear bows.

Re: grips

I'm not a big fan of the new ultra slim grips on bows these days. I've been wrapping the grips with the tape used for tennis racket grips. Its a little grippy, softens the hard edges and insulates quite well. Its a cheap try and maybe you'ill like it.

Re: grips

Grippy is a bad thing when it comes to grips. It's the biggest reason everyone has gone away from anything soft or rubber. It creates a much higher chance to cause bow torque, not a good thing.
