    That is exactly what I have.

    So I hold that grip in my left hand and draw with my right, ie, I am a right-handed shooter, yes? (just to be 100% clear about this!)

    Thanks............

    Is the left edge of the grip higher than the right? That is, does the grip surface slope away from you going left to right?

    If so, then it's a right-handed grip.
    Just like the picture that Thom posted, John? Yes mine is the same as that.

    Thanks!

    That's the definition of a right handed archer.
    But it's the "hold" part you're probably doing wrong. Once you have tension on the bowstring, you don't have to hold the bow anymore (simply put; your left arm is basically there to keep the bow away from your face ; ).

    Knuckles at 45°, index and thumb pointing towards the target, fingers and wrist completely relaxed.

    It's not even on the riser yet as I was unsure if I'd been sent the correct one. I emailed Jager a few times but no response, hence why I reached out to the forum.

    When it arrived, just holding the grip, it felt so wrong in my left hand and fits so well in my right hand, that I was convinced he has sent me a LH shooters grip.

    But... seems the grip is correct and is for a RH shooter.

    If any of you Jager grip owners are still here... I just got a Jager Low 2.0 for my Hoyt Buffalo.

    I'm a RH shooter.

    But the grip feels very comfortable in my right hand, not at all in my left! The corner of the cutaway digs into my left palm.

    I'd show you photos but the upload system here is useless...

    Thanks
    Go out to the Jager website and look in the FAQ area. The owner specifically address the feel of one of the RH grips after receiving questions such as yours. He says he has received emails from customers asking if they shipped a LH grip instead of a RH one because it feels better in the LH.

    I just ordered a Jager 3.0 in High and am really looking forward to getting it.
