This is the new standard frame for the J2 line of markers. Innovative, and comfortable, it is considered an 86* frame, and will help some of you reach higher BPS. Feel the difference. Includes beavertail, snatch and Grips!

Dye, Kapp, Stock, Powerlyte and other 2-finger hinge frames as well as sliders.

None of these frames allowed the rate of fire I achieved with the CCM frame.
Marker Setup: Powerlyte Hybrid with CCM 86 degree frame and stock Powerlyte parts, with Shocktech Bomb 4-Way.
Strengths: Fast
Comfortable
Built-in Snatch Grip
Well-Built Frame
Weaknesses: Trigger is a cheap aluminum, almost like tin
Review: I love this grip frame. The 86 degree frame is extremely comfortable, and the rate of fire exceeds the rate I get with my stock or DYE frames. I've never shot a mechanical cocker as fast as I can shoot this one.

I've tried my DYE and stock frames on my Hybrid, and they don't compare in ROF and comfort.

Unfortnately, there is one problem with the frame. The trigger is made out of a very cheap metal; feels more like tin than aluminum. I've tried to replace it, but the replacement trigger seems to have different dimensions, and doesn't work in my frame.

The internals of the frame are slightly different than the norm, and can be a PITA if you are unprepared for 'em. The rear screw is actually slid into a slot in the back of the grip before you can put it on, and dances around a bit before getting into the body. The trigger return spring has to be bent to get it off the trigger, unless you have a VERY small punch and can knock out the tiny pin in the trigger that the spring is looped around.

All in all, I prefer this frame to any other hinge frame out there. The bad points don't affect performance, just maintenance.
Conclusion: Worth buying, especially if you play tournament-style ball; the ROF is great and the comfort is a welcome change from a 45 degree grip. If the trigger were made of a slightly better grade of metal, and if the internals were redesigned to allow for a quick trigger job, I'd give this a 10. Even so, this is the only mechanical frame I'll use.
