Review: First let me say that these are very comfortable grips and they are by far the best possible upgrade for the ugly as sin stock e-spyder ones. Your fingers fit nicely in the groves and the soft rubber molds to your hand. The black looks great and there are nice details inlaid in the plastic such as a cool metallic dye logo. Now for the bad.

Dye has to be one of the most idiotic (yet most intelligent) companies i have bought paintball products from. First, when i recieved this product and opened up the box expecting a translucent, clear grip, I got what looks like a flat grey. I put it up against my black gun and was dismayed. If u don't believe me have a look http://www.paintballgateway.com/dyespstgr.html. This color of "clear" which is actually not clear at all looks horrible up against my gun. Already disappointed, I took off my old grip and try to put on the new one. The typical 9v battery which is slightly wider than the frame prevents the new dye grip from "closing" around the frame. Scratching my head, thinking I must have done something wrong, I call dye. The answer, the grips are faulty. They forgot to put in a battery compartment.

This begs the question. Were they too hasty and stupid to try the grips out before they sold them for the Christmas Season? No one even thought of trying the product on a gun before selling it? Is this what dye "precision" engineering is all about?

At least they replaced it free of charge including shipping and allowed me to switch to a different color. The black is actually black, stay away from the clear. The fact is this should'nt have happened.
Conclusion: I wouldn't be afraid to buy them now, dye used me as a consumer guinea pig. But dont buy clear expecting the grip to look clear, its grey. Otherwise great product. I give it an 8 for idiot factor.

Upgrade to a different marker and then put 200 dollars worth of upgrades on it.
Somthing unfixable could go wrong with your spyder any day. my advice go with a
e mag with ule body to make it lighter they are awesome.

props on review
