Review: I recently bought a clear Sticky 3 and I simply love it. I think the poor guys that have had a problem with there Sticky 3's are simply because they don't use a little common sense. So.... Hmmmm...lets think about this. The brand new grip is VERY sticky, the grip is metal. Rubber sticks(grabs) to metal very easy, so what is needed, lubrication. THIS IS THE KEY, AND IS NECESSARY-- You must put a few drops of gun oil on the handle, smear it around the WHOLE handle and then carefully slide the grip on. It works great. I have an orracle grip frame on my cocker, which is one of the widest frames out there, it installed flawlessly. I did notice however that when I sweat the grip got slippery, that was the first few games I played. I heard it gets stickier and stickier as you play. I' ve played about 2500 rounds and its tackied up real nice since the first few games but it is still needing to get broken in. Its great! Biggest complaint was that I had to cut my brand new grip so I wouldn't have two nubs sticking out at the rear of the frame, I wish there was use specific grips
Conclusion: Install it properly and you too will love it, plus it costs no more than the old style sticky. A nine because I expect the future to bring something better, so this can't get a perfect score, plus it needs to have installation recommendations/instructions describing how to do it.

I don't know about the 01 cockers but my 03 autococker has two sets of screw holes. In the set that the stock grips are on I had the same problem but the second set it fits perfect... I'm just glad I looked before I cut mine!
