“The Slick Shot Bow Torque Eliminator”
When Mark Pouliot contacted me and asked me if I would like to try a new product to eliminate bow torque and improve form I instantly said an emphatic “Heck Yes!”. He is the main man and super guy behind the Slick Shot, a simple but super effective way to eliminate bow torque during a shot.
I received the Slick Shot quickly and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it, anything to make your shot more accurate and eliminate torque right? Well, this product is just what the doctor ordered, simple to set up, super comfortable and it does exactly what it says it does, it will not allow you to torque the bow at all, and if you do have a “torque” problem it instantly corrects it back to where your grip should be.
They come in 3 sizes: Small, Medium and Large. Measurements are simple because you want to be sure you have the correct size. You measure from the palm of your bow hand from the base of the thumb (with the hand relaxed) to the base of the middle finger; If the measurement is 2-2 ½” Medium, Greater than 2 ½” Large, and if it is less than 2” order the small. They have adjustable elastic straps that will snug them up on your fingers and they also make ones with neoprene straps to fit over gloves, so they can be used not only during target shooting but hunting applications as well.
When I put it on for the first time, it is a different feeling for sure, some people may find it distracting or bulky, but give it just a few minutes on your hand an you can tell that this is a quality product designed to do exactly what it says it does. I currently shoot a Mathews Z7, and the grip on that bow is very well designed, but every bow manufacturer is different so the first time you pick your bow up with the Slick Shot will be quite different, so don’t worry if it feels “different”, give it a fair chance and then go from there.
Shooting with the Slick Shot is quite the experience, for some more advanced archers it may not be noticeable if you already have good form, but where this product will help the most is with newer shooters. I personally think target shooters will benefit tremendously from it ensuring that the bow is completely level which will in turn increase your accuracy! I shot several arrows with and without the Slick Shot and I can tell you from experience that it does exactly what it claims to do, and that is close your groups up, allow you to shoot with more confidence and eliminate bow torque!
Overall, I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to improve accuracy, form and overall shooting!

They have new colors and Mark is a first rate guy to deal with and a perfect product to improve your shooting!!
