Review: I bought a pair of these grips for my Ion, and when I was feeling them before putting them on, I admit I didn't feel much difference and was a little worried that they may not be an improvement. At any rate, they looked cool, and I had already paid for them, so I didn't care too much, I can be a stupid consumer every once in a while.

Turns out I was wrong, after putting them on ( having a little trouble, as they have to fit ALL 45 frames, not just mine... ) I found them to be softer and comfy. Weren't really sticky to begin with. They were designed really well, there's a spot for your thumb, the section for you bottom two fingers is really squishy, and they look hella nice on my Ion. After hefting the gun for about an hour ( helps when you have friends who like clicking ) the grips started getting kinda sticky, which is nice, because that's kinda what they were supposed to do in the first place.

Another bonus: The grips seem to have formed a seal between them and my frame, which ( although I'm not going to test ) appears to be somewhat watertight, and gives them a kind of " Part of the Gun " look, which is more than I bargained for. My gun almost has a Professional look now.

In a while I'll update this, main worry is fraying, which seemed to happen in abundace with my stock grips, making twisty little rubber stringies all over the place.

EDIT : No fraying, they're still soft and sticky, and still seal nicely. They retain their previous 10 status.
Conclusion: If you have an Ion, buy a pair, and make the kid look twice to make sure that's not a Shocker you're holding.
If not, buy a pair anyway, as long as they match up well with your gun, you won't be dissapointed.
SmartParts gets 10'D on this one.
