A very useful device to increase player comfort and bow control. This simple soft foam rubber tube fits over the bow thumbpiece and is very popular with professional players. It can be moved back and forth to allow for changes in hair length and to achieve an individual fit.


  • Soft foam rubber.
  • 2 pieces per pack, each 1.5 inches long.
  • Fitting instructions included.
  • Supplied in plastic tube.

Bow Grip
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Once on it works.

Cons: Problem is that no instructions, so the first grip split as I was trying to get it onto the bow.

Other: Maybe there is an easy way to get it onto the bow without stretching the foam so it splits.

Pros: Delivery was pretty speedy, product working fine so far - had one on for about three weeks now.

Cons: Only one came in the post initially, but got a second one immediately after a phone-call.

Other: Seems quite expensive for what it is, but probably won't have to replace them for a while.

Interesting solution to a common problem.
2 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Hhhmm - interesting! The thumbgrip on my bow was too hard and bulky so I took it off and replaced it with this. Although still bulky the grip has plenty of soft give so overall an improvement

Cons: Not sure about its longevity, being soft foam-but you do get 2. Bit of a tussle getting it on but staying put so far. Takes a bit of getting used to.
