I was actually just talking about this to a friend of mine today.  Yes, the thinner bow grips help you with better shooting.  You'll have less bow torque (twisting the bow in your hand) with a thinner grip.  How I explain this is this way...If you have two baseball bats and you're trying to twist it out of someone's hand.  One bat is normal size, and the other is half the size or smaller.  Which one will be easier to twist?  The bigger one right?  [:D]

It depends. If you are not real consistent with your hand placement you are more likely to torque the bow. It doesn't take much.  A smaller thinner grip is easier to hold without actually gripping the bow which you don't really want to do in the first place. Most archers would rather a thinner grip because it is generally more consistent.
