Hey guys, I'm ready to order a Jager for my Gold Medalist and have a choice of Best or Best 2. Help me out, which one do you like better? Thanks.

I have been waiting for Jager to produce a left handed version of the Zenit grip in 2.0. Maybe they have it now. I will have to check again.

Just checked again. Left handed 2.0 is not available for my Best Moon and Zenit. They use the Hoyt Matrix grip.

I've used both in low. I originally bought the .... err, 'orginal', and was quite happy with it. Later the 2.0 came out. A while afterwards I became concerned I was having too much palm contact so as it was available I tried it. Again it worked fine.

I have again tried the original after using the 2.0 for a long time. I found I had an inconsistent 'cock' to my wrist (rotation angle) so I need to keep all fingers to the side, none resting on the front of the riser. I hadn't noticed this with the 2.0. I'm now checking whether I need to do likewise with the 2.0.

Which to choose?
Hard to say. My hand size is medium for a man. A large hand, go original; a small hand go 2.0. Prefer a narrow, go 2.0.

Have a best on an oly set up & best2 on BB & hunting set ups - I find the best gives me a higher wrist with a bit better palm contact but I need to rotate my wrist into it so it takes a bit longer to set up - the best2 seats faster but feels a little less stable so I have to watch for relaxing my hand more - 6 of one 1/2 doz of the other - both are better then any other grips ivevshot - M
