I don't know if it is the worst but it is bad. Only a trip to Texas (Loesch) from perfection though.

Interesting that a Jager or Loesch grip would improve the 650 that much...

Its a nice riser just something held me back from it (possibly the Sirius I was holding). Might try a different grip on it.

I think the newer model being a little less mass weight with the option of adding 2 bow weights might be good. I like a heavy riser but my shoulder complained a little about the 650 - bit too much weight.

Redbow, I respectfully disagree... It flexes like a sumb1tch, trust me, I had one... on the shot you can feel that it flexes.... all risers flex (look at slow mo films on you tube osv) but I felt the 650 flexed more than my Nilo, way more thamn my Sirius and well Stolid Bull.. cant really compare that to anything....
just coz Scott shoots a 650 dont mean it dont flex!

I certainly get the impression my Best Moon flexes at times. Looking at grip fit, it seems most have a little spare room above the grip. Also, they are only ever held on by two screws opposite each other. This arrangement would allow for some flexing...............

I am getting somewhat confused about this grip issue. I agree that the Spigarelli wooden grip for an Explorer or a Vision is far from ideal, but how can you buy a grip online when everyone's got different size/shape hands-? That is if there was a grip designed for a Spigarelli riser.. Have looked on both the Loesch and the Jager site but cannot find one...

Nathan I have shot both the 650 and the Nilo and for the life of me I cannot feel "flex"
But there again I shoot longbows,and i cannot feel flex in those either,

If you are saying there is flex, can you explain that term?
lol not looking for a fight here just an education,
Thanks.

Likesnow,
Paul at jager makes any of his grip designs (best hi, best low, regular angles, etc) for just about any bow. just tell him what bow you have and he probably has the mold. you can look at any of the grips on the site and then tell him which one you want and for what riser. for example, i had a BEST grip made for my inno and one made for my excel. the outer shape of the grip is the same but the inside conforms to each specific riser. i dont think paul has a list of all of the risers he makes grips for but you can contact him and he usually answers back pretty quick.

if you are getting a grip for an explorerII you might check with paul first. my buddy had a grip for an explorer and it did not fit the explorerII without some modification.

Curious timing. My BEST style low grip arrived today. All I can say so far is that it looks great in situ.
I like it so far but I'll take a little longer with it before I reach a conclusion.

The prominent edge on the inside of the grip allows me to put it along my lifeline and then as I rotate my elbow bring my hand into a position that seems consistent at the moment.

The grip needs a little double-sided tape under the heel of it to stop a little rocking. This is not unexpected as the Gold Medalist grip also needs it on Janes Spig. This isn't a problem. I fully expect the grip will suit my GM/Best/Jane's Spig.

I'm currently retuning my nocking point................but it's looking very, VERY likely it will be the same as before - and that would be a surprise as the grip is higher then the bare metal.

It does seem to allow my hand to relax better and don't pop up my shoulder even though it does change my wrist angle.




As for Loesch.................. they need a better website, big time, soon. If you can't see what you want and no one locally has one to show you, then you lose a customer regardless of how good the product is reputed to be.

That's probably what the Loesch guys are used to

Let me know how you get on with the Best grip. In particular if it also happens to fit Jane's Spig (as it's the same as mine) and Jane's bow hand.. I have now let go of the padded glove I wore while my shoulder was aching, but am still shooting with a grip wrapped in bike handle shock absorbing rubber, two fingers curled in, which means I have no precise hold whatsoever, but one day soon hopefully...

I'd be interested to see what a Best low grip looks like. Last I looked at the jaeger site there were no pics of it. I have had the standard Best grips but they are not for me. For me the Loesch grips are the best semi-custom grip out there. The ones I have had custom fitted took a week to get including the shipping both ways. They are expensive but Jamie does a good job.

What did you tell them though Scott, the first time you ordered one?
What does 'semi-custom' mean exactly...?

Scooter,

Look at Greyside's Best Moon riser picture-that is what a Best low grip looks like.
