Here's what I did to my grip. It's fashioned after the Jager 2.0, which I got on a trade for a Morrison riser. I liked it so well, I cut all my grips to match its angles. I thought the wood grips needed a little extra feel in the palm so I cut some crude checkering with a file. Doesn't look too hot, but man does it feel nice.

I have to say, this Jager Grip has grown on me. I like it more and more every time I shoot.
Once I learned how to properly hold the grip, it places my hand in the exact same position over and over and over.
Some of my 4 arrow groups are about 1 1/2".
Now, this doesn't mean I am going to go out and rule the 300 rounds. The arrows may be grouping well, but the groups are not where I am aiming. LOL

UPDATE: I put a set of TradTech Black Max Wood/Glass limbs on the Dorado riser. Wow. Those things are smooth as silk and snappy! The bow has a "slight" hum on release that I need to tune out. Other than that...this bow is amazing!
Currently shooting Easton Gamegetters (500 spine) with good results. I want to play with some lighter shafts just to see how thay do, but most likely will hunt the Gamegetters next season.
