R-Core – The BumbleBee

The Bumblebee is a slim grip that you can apply force in different ways and still get a good, solid result.

The lifeline is rounded, non-intrusive, with soft curves and relies more to pressure to set the correct position. So, the “check” for positioning comes from deeper-than-skin as it happens with e.g. the master. 

Of course, you can add a lifeline ridge for the standard skin “setting” of the hand placement prior to full draw. 

Due to its shape ,it also fit smaller hands. 

It’s developed by Maria Olesen, winner of Kings of Archery 2019.

    This grip feels really good. I’m still struggling a little bit to find the perfect position for my hand, but I think this grip has the potential to become the most precise one of all the ones I’ve tested so far.

    just perfect. Nothing better than a custom R-grip by Aris.

  12. ben watterson (verified owner)

  17. KAIFEI L. (verified owner)

    This grip it’s super friendly to female archer or archer with small hands. One of my friend’s group become very tight when switch to this grip. Very impressive.

  18. Riku R. (verified owner)

    Quality was really good but grip model was too narrow to my hand I like more larger grips.

  19. Clayton (verified owner)

    The feel is good and it’s a high quality grip. Would recommend for someone who likes a tighter fit to the bow with your palm and thumb!

  20. ben watterson (verified owner)

    No torque. Well made, fits perfectly

  21. chad jones (verified owner)

  22. Omar (verified owner)

    Excellent grip. Arrived promptly, and fit my bow perfectly. It has a nice narrow profile, and feels much better than my stock Hoyt grip.

  23. Mathias Gröne (verified owner)

    Perfekte Passgenauigkeit auf dem Riser – besser als das Original! Die Form (Bumblebee) ist wie für mich maßgeschneidert. Die Abwicklung sehr professionell. Toller Service. Fazit: Für mich der beste Hersteller, absolut empfehlenswert!

    Fantastic customer service from R-Core.
    The grip has made an immediate improvement to my archery- only wish I knew of R-Core sooner.

  31. Kay (verified owner)

    First grip that has really fit my small hand without modification.

  32. Fernando Miguel Naranjo Pérez (verified owner)

    comfortable grip and quality materials. The unbeatable shipment both in packaging and in details.
    The grip fits perfectly to what I needed

  33. Anja (verified owner)

    Der BumbleBee ist für meine kleinen Hände sehr gut geeignet. Die Rundung ist für mich viel angenehmer als bei dem Master, den ich erst hatte. Also ein guter Griff für Frauenhände!

  34. Melanie (verified owner)

    Great GRIP for small Hands. And it fits perfectly on my RCX-100.

  35. Cristiaan Oortmann (verified owner)

    Great grip, no torque and hand position is spot on.

  36. Hilary (verified owner)

    Really went back and forth on which grip to choose (I was between the Bumblebee, Master, and Tax Evasion) but I’m really glad I went with a Bumblebee low. It’s so much easier to get my smaller hand in the right position, and with the lower grip angle I haven’t had string slap once yet!

    The purchasing process was super easy and it came all the way to the U.S. in less than a week!
