    Will an ergo grip fit on a HPX

    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking at customising a grip for my HPX.
    I dont want to experiment on my current (stock) grip in case it goes wrong, so was looking at buying a new one to customise.

    The Hoyt wooden grip I know fits the HPX, but the plastic ergo is significantly cheaper in terms of having a first play around at grip modification. However I am struggling to find any info on whether it will fit on an HPX from either shops or online forums. If anyone knows the answer to this or has tried this I'd appreciate some info and advice!

    Thanks.

    as far as i'm aware all hoyt grips are compatible with each other.
    i think one of my wood grips is the ergo and i've customized it and it fits my hpx fine.


    out of interest why are you customizing your grip? its normal for more advanced archers but if your newer its best to keep it simple until you learn the fundamentals.

    Hi X10Nano, Thanks.

    I have been shooting for a few years and it was suggested to me by a coach. I have been trying the Jager BEST (of theirs) which was an improvement, but they suggested that I might get a better fit for my hand with modelling putty than buying one.

    As such I don't want to splash out 30 for another hoyt high wrist grip, and then more if it goes wrong etc. when I could perhaps have a go on a 10 plastic ergo. However, the listings on shop websites does not say specifically that it will fit the HPX.

    The "Ortho" is the high wrist grip, the Ergo is a medium grip with a narrow throat totally different.

    FYI The current trend even the Koreans is to move the pressure point lower, the opposite of what you are trying.

    Yeah, I found that the Jager I borrowed was a bit too big for my hands, but the left-right slope was good for getting my bow arm in a better position.

    As a result it was suggested I try building up something with a slope, but slightly smaller to fit my hands.

    To do this I was just going to buy a grip that fits on my bow and use epoxy putty. I just wondered if I could start from the ergo rather than the hoyt wood grip (marketed as the replacment HPX grip) as it's a third of the price, and plastic to bond to.

    EDIT: Interesting to hear about the current trends - is that because they find it more forgiving on a long round? I found that both too low and too high a grip can give me pain in my bow shoulder and neck, whereas somewhere in between I find it easier to set everything in the correct position. This is another reason for wanting to build it up myself (well, with the help of others).

    I guess it is considered more stable by those using the lower pressure point and who can argue with their results.

    There is no one fit all solution hands are different sizes hence the modification of grips, but sometimes the grip gets the blame for other form/posture issues that need sorting first.

    I would not think the ergo grip can be modified to become a Medium Jager grip without taking off a lot of plastic to get the reverse slope.
