Jake Kaminski Grip - Grips by Jake Kaminksi

I AM – Lowered Pivot Point by Jake Kaminski

The I AM. grip series is the brainchild of Jake Kaminski, two times Olympian, professional archer and coach. Jake has developed the designs during his long career in archery. Each design addresses different needs. The series includes grips for Recurve and Barebow, with a brand-new option for recurvers that just moved from compound.

Details

-Slightly curved/angled lifeline area for great contact feel but less over-all torque.
-Lowered pivot point to change the balance of the bow for more front stabilizer weight, for more stability.
-More hand clearance for large hands or those who have vane contact issues on their index finger.
-Great for recurve or point on barebow or gap shooting.
-Sharp edges for consistent placement in the hand.
-I shot this grip at the 2016 Olympics.

    Really good grip

  2. Michael G. (verified owner)

    I am shooting very well with this new Kaminski recurve bow grip. Did a little modification to the grip myself and am now very happy with my ability to achieve a consistent grip hand on my bow.

  3. Vincent Truong (verified owner)

    Unhappy with the fit and finish on the handle. Ordered the 3d printed one, came with big layer shifts. Tried to contact support but no one responded.

    • Aris Korbetis (store manager)

      Please check your emails/spam. Sent you two emails for further info with a return/refund option, the same day but never got an answer.

  4. Philipp H. (verified owner)

    Perfect grip as described. Good use for more weight on the front stabilizer. The delivery was timed as described on the website.

  5. Anonymous (verified owner)

    very good for my hand, really like it

    Excellent product and fast shipping, highly recommended!

  8. Anthony (verified owner)

    The size/shape is super cool. It’s much better than my default Hoyt grip on my large hands.
    My main complain is that the 3D print quality isn’t as best as it could be. There are some places there it is clearly missing supports/cooling when printing and some lines are wonky compared to others. Also the ‘hoyt’ shape doesn’t fit perfectly my xceed riser, there are some large gaps at the top of the grip which makes it less in harmony than the default grip.

  9. Barry Green (verified owner)

    Still to try it out. Looks good though

    Spot on 👍 fitted straight on my riser with no modifications required. Feels good on the bow and has reduced my horizontal grouping.
    Just one comment on the material thickness of the grip, I’m an intermediate archer and I didn’t realise by changing the grip thickness it would change your clicker position, it’s common sense to me now but at the time it was a bit strange and not documented, other than that I’m very pleased with the new grip 👍

  12. Howard Johnson (verified owner)

    Best grip I’ve ever owned. I have large hands and most grips are quite small. This grip fit my hand perfect. The lower wrist angle and life line cut are great. Will definitely be using these grips from now on.

  13. Brendan (verified owner)

    Love the grip!! Item delivered in quick time!! Great!

  14. Benjamin (verified owner)

    The grip works great. Looks great, too. Is comfortable in my hand and helped my groups improve. I ordered it with the anti-slip, which at first felt harsh to my palm. But after sanding it down a little, it feels a lot better and I really like it as a reminder of proper placement.

  15. KAIFEI L. (verified owner)

    Really love the idea of lowered pivot point, allow me to hold more weights on the front stablizer and still very stable.

  16. Mario S. (verified owner)

    R Core provided me with a great custom made product and service. I am really pleased with my grip and highly recommend them

  17. Sari (verified owner)

    I am really pleased with this lowered pivot point grip, it suits well my shooting with barebow and i have the same grip in my recurve bow too. Barebow tab feels very good too. Many thanks. Sari

  18. EDWARD S. (verified owner)

    Great grip, great service, fast delivery!

  19. Chris Pleasants (verified owner)

    Very interested to try this on my Hoyt Formula Xi. Delivery was really quick and it fits perfectly. I’ve not had much chance to use it yet (I’ve been shooting with a ‘Master Grip’ ordered at the same time) but am looking forward to trialling it soon. Thank you Aris.
    Regards
    Chris

    I regularly dent the walnut with my fingernails and the wood is a little fragile around the bolt holes. But I love the shape

  21. George Griffin (verified owner)

    Very comfortable, close tot he modified grip I had been using. Very close call on using this one or the I Am recurve. Plan to try both when I move back outdoors.

  22. Alojz C. (verified owner)

    Grip is just beautiful and best experience to use

  23. Scott Morgan (verified owner)

    The custom grip came and it was exactly what I ordered. The color is eye catching and extremely comfortable. It is a dream to shoot.

  24. David Biglione (verified owner)

    The design of the grip by JK is very sharp, confortable, accurate, and the lowered pivot point makes it swinging forward super fast. It took me under 80 arrows to get used to it and find a natural bow hand set up.
    The manufacturing of the grip by R core is absolutely stunning!! The wood is gorgeous, the hexa grip option works a treat. The fitting to my Hoyt Xi was literally “plug and play”. The service was brilliant, with fast shipping and really nice packaging with few cool freebies (sticker, 3d printed mini grip keyring, and… a business card!). The grip came in a nice red fabric pouch. I highly recommend Rcore for their quality, and particularly the grips designed by the most analytical recurved archer Jake Kaminski 😉

  25. Fabio P. (verified owner)

    RCore is always perfect. After 3 days after order the grip was on my bow. This grip is manufacted perfectly, nice packaging. The hand sits perfectly and only one position is possible for perfect repetition. Best Grip ever tried for my Gillo GT-25. Thanks

  26. Markus D. (verified owner)

    This grip is similar to the I AM recurve grip but a bit thinner. So you can decide if you like a wider or a thinner platform. In terms of the lowered pivot point I didn’t see that much of a difference in feeling – but my groups are tighter so something must have happened 😀 Overall it is a solid and good feeling platform to shoot and personally I will go with either this one or the I AM recurve. Both are great – give them a try and decide on your own.

  28. Karol Domański (verified owner)

    The grip does its job. It forces you to use more weight on central stabilizer which, in result, slightly decreases the pin float. I am too early in my archery career, though, to harvest the grip’s full potential 🙂 I will definitely get back to it in the future.

  29. Torsten (verified owner)

    A narrow grip for my big hands. But it works! Not missing space there. It provides a good feedback and isn’t trying to be the main character while shooting, which is a good sign.

  30. Peter W. (verified owner)

    Grea grip. I am getting more comfortable with it on a daily basis.

  31. Cyrus Hodivala (verified owner)

    Manufactured and delivered quickly. Beautifully boxed and in a red pouch. Nice little extras like the grip key ring. The comfort, fir and shoot ability of this grip (is that a word) is exceptional. Finished mine in Candy Red glass with raised pyramid stippling. The lowered pivot point and low grip stance make this an ideal grip for shooting recurve. Fitted my Hoyt Xceed perfectly and is a joy to shoot with.

    Always a great experience ordering custom grips from Aris and R-Core! Terrific customer service and I was glad to see R-Core supporting the people in Ukraine.

    Great grips!

    I had previously moved from the Master to the Caerus, improving my form significantly along the way. But, now moving to this grip improved my groups and stability when aiming. This is now my go to grip!

  36. Susan Swain (verified owner)

    still getting used to it but happy so far

  37. jbumpark (verified owner)

    I had trouble with the stock grip on ATX-DX riser. The top was way too thin, and the arrow shelf was digging into my hand. Eventually my index was numbed. I got this grip to test and cannot be happier. It took sometime to be used to it, and I cannot even use other grips using it for a week or two. I liked it so much that I ordered one more for my daughter’s W&W Winex Riser, which was not listed on the drop-down menu. But the customer service was super prompt and helpful to find a compatible one. Thank you R-Core for awesome service and the great grip !!
