DYE’s original sticky grip was the first rubber grip developed specifically for use in paintball, and has become the most popular grip on the planet. Now DYE has taken grip technology to the next level with the Sticky 3. The Sticky 3 utilizes a combination of injected materials in two different durometers to give you the ultimate in comfort. The Sticky 3 also offers full wrap design giving your frame a back strap cushion and filling your palm completely. This advanced molding technology provides you a secure anatomically correct fit with a soft shock absorption material that your hands will love. Like the original DYE Sticky, the Sticky 3 will fit all standard 45 frames and is offered in a variety of colors to match your marker. Our quality sphere jewel logo is molded directly into the grip and will stay there forever. Beware of imitations, stick with the original.
The Dye Sticky 3 Grips are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.

These grips are awesome. I bought a gun that has been used for a year with these grips on it and it looks awesome and feels awesome. These grips are very comfortable. If your gun has bad grips like a 98 custom or a Spyder or what ever then buy this, if your gun has ok grips then you should still buy this because it is better than any kind of grip and it looks cool.
Great grip to buy. If you are looking for a new grip then buy this.
The regular stock grips that come with the Piranha Pro TS G3... hard plastic, so not as comfortable as these bad boys, obviously.

Very good looking. And Very Comfortable to use.
On Piranhas, the grip blocks the striker release button.
These things are great. The first reviews of this product were due to DYE unfortunately having a problem in the mixing problem, hence making the material weaker and more susceptable to breakage. But, they've fixed that problem now and so, these grips are DEFINETLY worth getting. They're very comfortable, and offer sweet style as well. Definetly worth the 25$.
I definetly recommend this product to anyone out there looking for a better grip. They've fixed the breakage problem now, so they should be fine and dandy :-D If you've got 25$ to spend on grips... definetly get these... u won't regret it. I give it a 10 b/c there's nothing really wrong with it to me :D
i have a spyder shutter , with a 14" jj ceramic .... and the dye sticky 3
nice looking piece to add on ur gun and very sticky
it smells kinda funny but.... so far nothing else
I just got it and kidna testng it out not to much wrong with it .... but like alot of people say the ripping ..... mine hasnt ripped yet but it is showing signs of it . Another thing crappy about it .... is if u have a drop foward u ave to take that all apart and then screw it all back together ... maybe it is juts me cuz im impatient ... there is one other thing ... if you smell it up close it smells like a special k strawberry ceral bar kidna werd...
for right now i would polly give this a 9 juts for the fact that it hasnt ripped and it is a pain in te neck to put on ....
they feel great. very soft
the semitransparent blue with clear center looks awsome.
everyone at the field loved them the first day out.
I like the cushion on the back of the handle
after the first day of use I came home and noticed that the back had split.
one one use for $29.99, I was not going to just sit there and take it. so i called up the shop and talked to them. I later brought them my marker. they said there is a warning tag inside that says trim to fit and no warrinties are to be giving. WHAT!!!!!!!!!!! after explaining that there was no trimming to be done that it slip right on my spyder sonix handle. they installed the 2nd pair and was puzzled. they did fit. so they gave me a new set..... if this one tears which by the reviews sofar they will DYE will get a call from me.
I do love these everyone at my field wants them.... man I do too. just give them a few monthes to work out the bugs, maybe issue replacments or recall them.
i give them an 6 because I wouldnt buy anything but these grips , but I didnt give them more than 6 because i wouldnt buy them yet.
Tippmann 98 Custom
Shocktech Supafly Bolt
J&J S2 14" Barrel
Dye .45 Sticky Grip
Soon to get a drop, or maybe just an Ion
I got the Grip for my Tippmann for my birthday. I'd have to say that it really is "sticky " without being physically sticking to everything. If your hands get sweaty it won't slip, and the rubber feels great in your hands. The grip looks okay on a 98, the back part sticks out a little but I've seen it on other gun and it looks sweet. The molded logo is never gonna come off, I can already tell.
Problems: The main problem is that I don't think it's worth the $20-$25 that you normally pay, especially if you wear gloves like me (duh, what was I thinking?). Fortunately, I didn't shell out the cash for this one. Also, it's kind of a pain to clean without water and some kind of cloth, since paint goes into the little crack in the middle.
Also, 98 users, when you want to clean your gun (which I do all the time) you have to take the grips back off, which sucks if you're lazy.
Overall it's a great product, just doesn't seem worth the money, especially if you wear gloves. I give it an 8 for price
8 out of 10

A little pricey
Some trimming may be required
Screws may not fit
A major improvement over the stock panel grips. These grips wrap around the whole gun and provide a larger surface area to hold onto for people with bigger hands/long fingers, and which means its very comfortable to hold onto and hands wont become fatigued as quickly. They're made of very soft rubber with harder plastic parts in certain areas for support. Installation took about about 5 minutes, I had to unscrew the ASA then trim two corners that were sticking past the frame and the screws that were included were too large so i just reused the old ones. Nothing is perfect but this is pretty close
This is a great product very comfortable. First and probably the last grips I wil ever have to buy. 9 for having to trim it and screws were too big

-The most confortable grip produced
-Only avalible for 45 frame
My brother bought this grip for his back-up gun, an Impulse, and I have felt them. These are the most confortable grips every made. I would put them on my cocker if they came for the eclipse frame. A vast improvement over the original Dye sticky grip and much better than anyhting else out there.
They are worth the price. The single best grip for a 45 frame.

I just bought these grips recently to put on my Phantom, and boy do they perform! Not that the stock Hogue grips were uncomfortable, I just wanted a little something better. So I went down to the local I&I Sports and got me a set for about $25. These grips ARE worth the full $25. I read numerous reviews here on this site, where people said that the stickies were hard to put on their particular frame... I went home expecting to have a battle trying to get the things on, but before I grabbed the lube, I just tried pushing them on. Bingo! They slid right on in less than a second! The Dye screws are just crap, unless you have a Dye grip frame, if not I suggest just tossing them. The Phantom is lightweight, and with these amazing grips it feels even better. I am sure that these will compliment any marker that they are put onto, just make sure that it is not grossly oversized, otherwise the grips may split while being put on. The Dye website also says to expect the grips to be oily and such, but out of the box mine were not. Just one small gripe that everyone else seems to also have - the grip does extend past the back ridge at the top of the grip, leaving two small protrusions on the back, right at the crotch of the thumb and index finger. I actually do not mind them so much because it helps my hand from moving up on the grip, but just a word of warning.
Buy them now and thank me later! Only a 9 because of reputed durability issues with the grips, though I have not experienced them.

Did I say comfy?
Price (As with any DYE product)
Prone to tearing
I have used markers with Sticky 3s on several occasions, and these are very nice grips indeed. They give you grip, and are squishy for comfort, which is quite a relief from holding that hard rubber grip that most guns come with.
If you use gloves, the grip still feels good, and it gives you even more grip on the marker, but the most benefit comes from using the grip without gloves.
However, for the retail price, I am hard pressed to justify dishing out 25+ just for a grip. Check the B\S\T forums. These sometimes come up, and you often can get them for a bargain.
I have also heard that these grips are prone to ripping and tearing if you attempt to put them on a wide gripframe, and that DYE will void your warrantee on the grips if you put them on certain guns. However, I have not seen\experienced this for myself, so I cannot factor this into my review.
A very nice product, but I am hard pressed to say it is worth the price. -1 for the price, and -1 for the seemingly common issue of durability with these.
They shed after about 2 months use.(But what doesn't)?.
I have these grips on my Cocker and my Pulse and they are extremely comfortable. They are the best grips that I have ever used. They allow you to get a great grip on your frame so you are able to pull the trigger quicker. I really don't understand what these other people are talking about. RIPPING????? A lot of people are complaining about them ripping when putting them on their hinge frames. Mine went on my hinge perfectly and have been using them for 3 months now. I also have these grips on my Impulse and I have an I-Frame on that. If you didn't know, the I-frame has a hump on the back of the frame to give you a better grip but also makes you have to stretch the grip over the hump. I stretched my grips and they did not rip one bit, and I have been using them also for about 3 months. Maybe it's Luck-of-the-Draw but so for I have had a good experience with these grips.
I love these grips and in my opinion are the best grips out. I recomend this product to anyone.....but just incase you are worried about ripping, try using some machine oil or lube when sliding them on the frame....and also break them in before you put them on. Like twist them and squeeze them!!!! =0
