Balance / Feel

The manner in which the grip of a bow naturally positions your hand and wrist is an important factor in attaining accuracy. Also, the feel of a bow in your hands can seriously affect your decision to buy one rig over another. A bow that meets your needs in some areas but feels like a block in your hand will likely be left on the shelf.
