bow mod

Recommended Posts

I'm new to bow hunting and 4 months ago I purchased a bow in my price range, a pse rally, decent for a first bow shoots nice and quite and I like the feel of it. But after a few things I have changed on the bow to make it better and my own, and after shooting my old mans bow. I want to know if it is possible to put a wood handle on the bow since mine only has 2 pieces of rubber on each side? My dads buckmaster that has a wood handle just feels so much better to shoot even with a 2 inch longer draw than mine I could still group arrows really close. Or would this mod be more in the area of having to buy a different bow?

I know you can get custom or aftermarket grips for Mathews bows. I'd bet you can get them for other brands like PSE as well. I googled up a company called Jager Archery that makes custom grips. You might start there. I've never used a custom or aftermarket grip on any of my bows.

yeah looked at that site. I'm thinking this mod will be out of the question, just gonna have to suck it up and use the bow the way it is or buy a new one.

While grip is personal preference, most experts say that a thinner grip is more accurate. A thick wooden grip does very little during your shot because very little of your hand touches the grip during the shot. It is nice for holding onto, but not alway for accuracy.

That being said, there are many types of aftermarket grips out there that you could look at if you'd like to try it.

I understand that thinner could be better, I shoot open handed anyway. But the the wood handle contours your hand better even when you shoot open handed. So with the thinner handle I tend to torque the bow more and the wood handle I torque less and shoot tighter groups.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
