Back in 2013 this was the first modification that I ever attempted. It's a Barnett Strike 9 that I tried to improve with a denim micarta wrap. It was a very easy mod. I just cut some old jeans into short strips. While my wife soaked the strips in two part epoxy and handed them to me I wrapped the strips until I felt the handle was large enough. When the epoxy hardened I tried to carve some finger grooves. The epoxy was the kind that comes in a double syringe. It took three of the double syringes. As you can see it has yellowed over time. Later I added a lanyard loop. I actually shot this as my main shooter in a couple of tournaments. I still shoot it quite a bit.

That's a pretty great idea! Nice looking mod, very comfortable looking shape.

That is a ingenious thing to do, very clever :)
