Easy to clean
Screw holes weren't all the way through.
I was never a huge fan of the original Eblade grips. The gigantic orange "E" annoyed me a little, and all those little ribs were hella hard to clean out if you got shot in the grip. When I got the Panel grips in the mail, the first thing I noticed was that rather than a one-piece wrap-around design like the stock Eblade grips, these actually come in two panels, which leaves the front of the grip (under the trigger frame) uncovered. This design is nice because you don't have to hold the grips open with one hand while trying to replace the battery with the other hand. While testing my gun, I noticed that the grips were quite a bit slimmer than the stock grips. It felt a little more comfortable in my hands. I took it playing for the first time Saturday, and lo and behold, I got shot in the hand. This time, though, cleaning was a breeze. A piece of paper towel, a Q-tip, and I had a clean grip. The only thing I found wrong with these is that on both panels, the bottom hole had a bit of plastic hanging out into the screw hole, but it was so thin the screw just pushed right through it.
Eblade users don't have many options for after-market grips, but these do a very nice job of providing comfort and ease of use.
