    My handle grip came unstuck from my bow end of last season. Took it to my bow guy and he said to silicone it on. Well, never did....and today it got lost. I cannot shoot without it. Any idea where I can get a replacement, quick?

    You could shoot off the bare riser without issue.

    Your best bet would be to go to a Mathews shop and get a Focus or Flatback. That's your fastest route.

    You can use 3M rubber weatherstrip adhesive or a heavy duty double sided tape. I've had better luck with the adhesive

    Mathews/Mission dealer should have one. Any Mathews grip will fit: Slimfit, Focus or Flatback. Use a thin strip of 3M Black Weatherstrip Adhesive. Not the yellow. The black will soften up with the heat of a hair dryer, if you want to remove it some day.

    FWIW I just spent the last couple of weeks shooting BHs with all 3 Mathews grips, a Torqueless Low Wrist and a Torqueless High Wrist. Settled on the wood SlimFit.

    Unfortunately, my bow shop stopped dealing with Mathews. I know F&S sells the Mission series, maybe they'll carry something. I've tried shooting it without and it's too uncomfortable.

    I suggest calling Mission/Mathews. I'll bet you can purchase one directly from them if you can't find something local. Any archery shop I have been into don't have stock grips on hand so I would bet they'd have to order you one any ways. Might as well skip the middle man.

    Typically they don't let you buy from them direct, that's how the shops stay open.

    If your local shop doesn't have one and you don't want to order one... then maybe you'll find one on Google I guess.

    We sell focus grips for $50 , figure most mathews dealers would have atleast one to sell

    I stopped at F&S, the guy who runs the archery department said there is a dealer about an hour and a half away. Unfortunately don't have time to go there during week. I will call Mathews tomorrow and see if they can point me in right direction to purchase one. I went out and shot my bow this afternoon, with gloves it's not so bad...plan on wrapping it with vet wrap until I can get one. That'll add a bit of cushion.

    Thanks for info all.

    Worth a try in my opinion as I bought a different grip for my Elite directly from Elite over the phone. I know you can also buy certain things directly from Bear also. I obviously have no experience with Mathews/Mission but I'd still at least call.

    There are grips for Mathews on eBay and Amazon. Would one of those work?

    I looked on Amazon and didn't see any....I'll look again in the morning. Otherwise I'll go through by calling Mathews. Thanks!!

    You're awesome. I have no clue why I had nothing pop up. THANK YOU!

    (I see why, I was searching for the Mission series...I'll have to see if these would fit. I read somewhere a regular Mathews grip wont work.)

    Macsolo was correct. I called Mathew's first thing this morning. They cannot sell direct. I need to go through a dealer. Well, sadly, closest one is an hour and a half away. Though, the rep I spoke to said Field and Stream could order one if they're a dealer. (Which I do see Mission bows in their store). Maybe this is an excuse to upgrade to the Elite Spirit...lol.

    Going to check Ebay now - it needs to be a specific grip to fit.

    That's too bad on the grip, I hope you find one soon! I love my Elite Spirit, very nice shooting bow!

    You could try wrapping it in hockey tape.

    Im really starting to dislike the grip on my craze and am considering taking it of and wrapping it instead.

    Vet wrap is pretty much the same thing - I am going to do that until I can get a new one. I didn't mind my grip - it's just tough shooting without one.
