I think all the new Dorado's/GameMaster II's/Buffalo's and Tiburon's now come with the low ProFit grip. I prefer the older high one. I've taken all of them to the grinder and fashioned them similar to the Jager 2.0. I then take a file to it to give it a deep checkering effect. I really like the way they fit my hand.


The one on the upper right is the one I prefer:

I remember Joe and I going thru boxes of grips to find a few we liked, high wrist TT wood grips. I recently got a Jaeger med wrist grip and have been shooting it on my Titan the last month or so. I grabbed my other Titan yesterday with the wood TT grip.....felt like a real handful, almost terrible compared to the Jaeger!!!!! I got to get a high wrist to try now.

I think of all the bows I've had since I bought my original Titan and BF's and that bow is still the best shooting bow I've ever had.....its been fun but dang that bow is by far the best for me and that new grip is making it even better.

From the picture, that is what I am looking for, I think. Something with more palm swell than the stock narrow grip.
I can't find that grip for sale anywhere, though.

Yohon, I have my brace at about 8 1/4" on the Dorado. The only way to not hit my arm is if I exaggerate the bend at my elbow. But that feels...weird and I can't shoot worth a da..darn like that.

I'm new to metal risers and am starting to think I should have gone with a Titan. :roll:
Those wood/glass tradtech limbs are sounding sooooo sweet to me, but Lancaster is all out of conversion bushings.

Sorry to hijack the thread. I'll start a new one for any other questions.
Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once!

Sorry to hijack the thread.


You might call a Hoyt dealer, or post a want ad on the classifieds for a high Profit grip.

As for the bushing, you can make your own from 3/8" copper supply line. It has to have a 1/4" I.D. Then, you can use a 3/8" black plastic hole plug on the top. The fittings will cost you about 1 buck each. I can send you a set if you can't find the stuff.

btw... there's nothing wrong with hijacking a thread. We are Pirates--you know. :)

Yohon,

I don't know for sure. I'd call it a medium grip--it's not marked, but here's a picture of one I have left. It's the wood grain one:
