Arrow Custom bow grip searching..

I'm trying to find a type of "cushioning" bow grip I could put on my bow handle. Something cushioning, yet secure. Maybe like a tempur-pedic type idea, but obviously not actually using that specific material. Something that like said above, has a nice comforting and cushioning grip to it, yet won't slip around in my hand too much and I can keep it held very steady. I may have to get creative and come up with something myself, because all I see is the tentacle wrap and tape wrap, aside from other wooden handles. Thanks for any help guys!

I guess what I'm looking for is a wrap-type grip that has a consistency of something like neoprene, but maybe a little softer without being too soft. It's ok if it widens my grip a little. the handle on my bowtech guardian is a little thin anyways

Nevermind gentlemen, I've found exactly what I'm looking for. Here's what it is incase anyone is interested!

Gonna wrap my handle with this adhesive neoprene wrap --> http://www.eders.com/products/cir-cu...r-pad-2pk.html

Then wrap the entire thing with some camo wrap tape. Whichever camp tape feels the most comfortable. Thanks for looking gentlemen!

The only thing on the market that comes to mind is made by I believe "LimbSaver" and its rubber-type wrap that goes around your grip.. I had one on my last bow because I was not in favor of the grip and it seemed to do the trick.. It also helps with the vibration in the handle.. It sounds like you are looking for something that may be a little softer but this is more comfortable then the wooded handle.. Just a thought..

thank you for the reply tho, but if you look at the the link i posted above, i found a pretty promising looking neoprene grip that I'm gonna use as a base, then wrap over that with a comfortable camo grip tape. I've seen the tentacle and rubber wraps you're talking about and i just don't think it'd feel too good for my preference. once again, thanks for you help. it's appreciated

Default Custom!?

I make custom knifes in my spare time, soon i will make a custom grip for my bow. There are thousands of materials out there from wood to rubber, looking forward to my custom handle. here are a couple knives I have made, handle material comes in many different sizes and can be molded any way you like.

If the wrap you found doesn't work for ya, I've heard of people using the stuff they wrap tennis racket handles with for their grip with really good results. Just an idea.
