Yes, shortens the DL and also produces pressure on the wrist joint, hand rotated back more than with the 'pistol' position. If you have good form with even pressure on the thumb pad then you sure can get great bone on bone alignment with this compound style grip. Narrow too, means less prone to torquing. I find with a med wrist grip however that its more bow-forward from the throat and as such based on the way I apply pressure is more consistent and easier on the wrist at higher draw weightsThanks for sharing. Your comment about the low grip and what it does to your DL I find interesting. Can you comment further on that? I would assume it probably shortens it? Is that common regarding low grips or just your result. I found a low grip to work very well for me on the satori but I never gave it any thought at to how it would affect my dl and by how much.
