My cousin gifted me his old compound bow and while it was still a nice working tool the grip was a cobbled assortment of scrap fabric and duct tape. Needless to say it was not the nicest to hold or the best looking so I set about trying to find a new nonslip grip for cheep.
I ride a mountain bike and had a few punctured inner tubes laying around so I cut a piece and lubricated the inside with dish soap and tried slipping it over the end of the bow. that didn't work the rubber was too tight and the bow had too many odd shapes to allow me to pull it on. So I then used a air nozzel attached to my air compressor and blowing air under the tube to "inflate" it slightly allowed me to inch in over the handle and I now have a new free grip that seem very comfortable and makes for a nice non-slip grip.
