Default How do you remove an 04 Bowtech Grip?

In an attempt to isolate the creaking noise my bow makes during the draw I want to remove the grip from my Patriot.
How do you take it off?

I dont own a Bowtech but if it's like my Mathews you can use a screw driver with a rag for protection from scratching and a good bit of gentle elbow grease.

Dave.
Try heating the grip with a hair dryer first otherwise you might bust the grip

Thanks Ausie, gee- this is starting to sound like work?!?!

I'm dreaming up a way of coming to full draw without touching the grip at all. If I could pull that off I could rule out the grip as the noise maker real quick like.

You should probably take your bow back to your dealer for help before you try prying the grip off because it will probably break.

have you checked the cable guard to see if it has started slipping out or is loose.

Breaking grip[:'(], that would be my luck. I did get to half draw twice without touching the grip and there was no noise. The noise seems to be present on the first shot of each shot sequence, and then goes away only to return after pulling arrows and shooting the first shot of the next sequence.

I did loosen the screw on the cable guard and try to shoove the rod in further and then retighten. Didn't seem to get anywhere with that.

This noise is very present anytime I let off on the limb bolts, but come and go when I max the bow back out. Sometimes it will not exist at all until the next time I let off on the limb bolts, and then it will be hit and miss again.

I'm afraid the proshop will say-"what noise" due to it being somewhat low in volume (now). BUT I know it would send a whitetail running in the quiet morning woods (been there, bought the T-shirt).

Noise was worked out within the limb pockets.
When I asked the pro-tech about removing the grip he said "oh no, I'll let you do that so I'm not responsible for it"[].
Guess they don't come off very easily.
