Dye Sticky griks on Black Magic
Strengths: Look, nice, slim and feel good. They dont cost too much. Product is perfect for people who have a hard time gripping gun due to smaller hands. Durable and nice when you have to change batteries. You cal slo dye them colors. I used red coloring available at grocerie stores and colored mine a tinted red wich looks soooo nice on my Black Magic.
Weaknesses: There is no front grip like on the stickies. The are a little slippreir than the stickies too. Other than that, not much to complain about.
Conclusion: If you change the grip on your gun, i would reccomend bringing your paintball gloves and seeing how the grip feels in your hand. I would go with these or the Dye sticky grips.

dye stickies
Marker Setup: Impulse with a lot of extras
Strengths: These grips are awesome. I hae always ran the dye stickies and they were always big. The panels make the grip a lot slimer and they arent still comfortable. PLus the looks great, and are easy to put on. Also if you need to take off your grips for a battery its better to take off one side, then the whole grip.
Weaknesses: Nothing. these grips are great for the cash, and the look better than any other panel in my opinion.
Conclusion: Awesome panel grips, do you own them? you should =) If your looking to slim down your trigger frame grip, and want something thats looks awesome for a very good price, then go for these. You will be happy.

-Magnetic trigger mod with ext. adjustible front and rear stops, replaced trigger pivot pin for decreased slop
Strengths: Inexpensive, Easy to find, somewhat unique
Weaknesses: Poor manufacturing, Carbon ones don't look good
Review: Well, after seeing many images on the Dye site and online, I thought I'd order some of the carbon fiber panels (silver being the other option). Well, in person they're nowhere near as cool. You can easily see that the pattern on them is just a cheap print behind the plastic. Well, I guess that's my fault for not looking in person at some.

The other problem was that the DYE jewel on one of them was not put in right, so the panel is messed up. There is a clear spot, the jewel is off center, and there is a lump in the back of the panel that would have to be shaved down for the grips to fit on my marker, but that would leave a nasty, cut-up area on my grips, visible from the front.

All in all, my pair were shoddy, which leads me to believe that many pairs out there might be. Buy at your own risk.
Conclusion: Well, they're just grip panels. If you like how they feel and look, get them.

Any grips you find are practically the same. These are more for looks I think or for players who dont like the bulkier sticky kinds.
Marker Setup: I have a vertebrate cocker, and a piranha as of now.
Strengths: Look nice, dont get dirty, and feel good in the hands
Weaknesses: No stickiness, arent as bulky as some like
Review: I gotta give these things an 8/10. They look pretty, feel nice( at least to me) and match basically any type of frame. They are easy to clean and fit well in the hand. If you're looking for more comfort, try Dye stickies or something but these things work just fine since most of the time, you are probably wearing gloves anyway.
Conclusion: Im giving this an 8 because although they are pretty, they of course dont appeal to everyone.

The cheap grips that came on my Defiant. Dye Sticky Grips.
Marker Setup: 2000 Bob Long Defiant (Red)
14" J&J 2 piece barrel
68/45 pure energy tank
Egg
Suppa Fly bolt
Strengths: I think that the grips are actually quite comfortable, They look unique, Their cheap.
Weaknesses: The grips do not wrap around the front of the grip frame.
Review: I think that these grips are really sweet looking. Their cheap. Their worth the money you would spend on them. All my friends think that they look really sweet on my Defiant. But I think I would rather spend about an extra $10 - $15 and buy some dye sticky grips because they are more comfortable and they actually wrap around the grip frame. But they are very good grip panels.
Conclusion: My final recommendation is that they are excellent grip panels but I think that you'd be better off spending a little extra cash and get some sticky grips.
