EXTEND YOUR DRAW LENGTH
This project is for those of us with short arms that want to shoot a longer draw length.I have normaly a 28"draw and wanted to get more performance from my bow.I couldn't grow my arms so I made an extended grip fron a piece of butternut that I had.Before making this I was told that "it can't be done""It will make you tourque the bow""It won't work".They are wrong!!!!!!The grip I built moves the bow foreward 13/4" and allows me to shoot a 30"draw module now.My arrow speed has gone from 268fps to 288 fps with 390 grain arrows.I actually seem to be more acurate now ,so tourque isn't hapening,as this grip forces you to shoot with an open hand.To make the grip you will need to remove the old one and trace the grip onto your wood.Now extend the front of the tracing about 3",trim later.Cut out the blank and mark the riser width from the front side.Cut the blank into the three segments that you marked for the riser.Lay the center piece against thr riser and trace the back profile of the riser and cut this off at the length you want to extend the grip.Match up the three pieces again and clamp together.Slip onto the riser and trace the front profile onto the side pieces.Cut out the riser profile and glue all together.now carve/or sand the grip to fit your hand.The new grip can be glued or if the riser has cutouts a screw can be put through the cutout hole to fasten the grip in place.Don't screw into the riser!
