    I use a Hoyt Carbon Matrix. I love the bow. As far as grips go I think it depends on the persons preference. Try to shoot different bows and see which type of grip you enjoy the most.

      Well it mainly depends on what you are expecting from the bow as far as model. As far as brand, Hoyt is a very popular brand, and used by many of my friends and colleges. I however love Diamond/Bowtech and have used it all my life. It is a very reliable brand and i would recomend it. as far as the grip i cant help you. Good luck!

        I shoot a Bowtech VTX Extreme and I love it, the grip is small and it works for me.

          I have a PSE compund I bought in 1990. The grip, IMO, depends on what is comfortable for you.

            I use a Reflex Growler, and it's a good bow, although I probably wouldn't buy it again. Reflex's were made by Hoyt, until they started out-selling the Hoyt lineup, then Hoyt dropped production.
            As far as the grip is concerned, you are correct, in general a slender grip is better, and the grip on mine is one of the best I've used. I think most bow companies make good grips nowadays, with the possible exception of Mathews.

              I shoot an older Hoyt Ultramag, not the most current technology but it still brings down animals. As far as the grip goes it all boils down to what you are comfortable with, accuracy is not determined by the grip alone, it is the shooters repeated use of proper fundamentals. Remember, practice alone does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. JM, I gave you a +1 to balance you out, looks like you got the bad end of a Hoyt hater.

                  They can hate on Hoyt all they want ORbowhunter. If they want to come target practice with me I will just shoot the nocks off of all their arrows ;].

                    Once again JM is right on target,There are lots of good bows on the market.Find one that suits you and learn it,the name on the bow won;t shoot bull eyes.ONLY YOU AND LOT'S OF LEARNED PRACTICE.

                      I have bows with thin grips and bows with thick grips. I shoot both well but if I had to choose I would go with thin grips. It gives a better feel sitting in the palm of your hand. Conventional wisdom will say the thicker grips are more solid but I do not feel this is true.
