Are you an archery class instructor or coach? Are you working with archers who have taken many hours of archery classes and developed some very bad habits before they got to you? I present to you, the grip grip stop. It's just a simple thin strip that you can double sticky tape to the back of the grip just below the pivot point to help remind the more stubborn student to stop trying to choke the bow to death. They fail to understand two simple things. One, the bow doesn't breath. Two, no one is trying to take it from them. >< I have tried to model the bumps to be big enough to annoy but not pointy so that they shouldn't hurt. Just give a not so subtle reminder. Relax that lead hand.
Print it with 100% fill, stick it to the bow grip below the pivot point at the bottom edge of the grip....watch the fun. Please note, I have yet to try this in the real world as of this posting. I am excited to see if this actually works or if the more stubborn students will just end up with bump impressions in the hand...
