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.
Has that white/ opaque section of grip that may not jive with all markers.
I investigated many grips at many stores. Found this one to be the most comfortable.
I got one first on my timmy 98, fit well, didn't slide around, has good grip, and is extremly comfortable. later on when I got my dm4 I was very pleased to find that it came stock. I have yet to find any on the market to be more comfortable. I havent torn it up yet so it must be pretty durrable.
Its a matter of comfort, everyones idea of comfort varys. I find it extremely comfortable.

Feels great, looks great. Very soft and smooshy!
Piece "O" Crap! Ripped down the back after about a half hour of play.
This is probably the best looking and feeling grip out there on the market. It's a true shame that a company as well known as "DYE Precision" would put such a sub-standard product out on the market. Come on fella's are we gonna believe DYE didn't do any field testing on these grips before the launch??? How could they have not known that these rip so fast and frequently? This is a great example of "Let's make money now". I don't know about you, but I don't like to throw my money away and these grips were not cheap. DYE normally turns out a pretty good product, but "buyer beware" is what it's come down to.
DYE - I truly hope you make good to all who have supported you in the past. (PAINTBALLERS!!!)
Stick with the old Stickies! Gave a 3 instead of a 1, because they do look and feel great, for about a minute.

personally, i thought more comfy than old stickies.
they rip. dont be fooled. it will happen.
i read these reviews the day before i recieved my sticky. i thought, oh, my bushy grip frame is small, it wont happen. one hour, thats all it took. now, keep in mind, you dont need the little back part, but it was so comfy! i e mailed them, and they said they would replace it. i told them not to bother if it was just going to happen again, and so far ive had no response. however, one of the guys on here said they fixed the problem, so i might want one now.
On the lighter side, they are very very good lookin. not as good lookin as the pictures, however. that was a big letdown. they have some words inscribed on the clear plastic part, you cant see them. and, the blue was NOT the blue it looked like. at the time i ordered, they didnt have their disclaimer that they would be different colors. i was dissapointed.
from dye, i would expect more. they are nice if they dont rip, so unless dye fixed them, it WILL rip. do NOT think it wont. no matter how small your grip is, it will rip. unless, for some reason, you go to put these on a stock mag grip, gone ghetto style. then i supose they will fit. please dont do it, people will laugh at you.
If they HAVE fixed this huge problem, buy them. you wont regret it. they are very, VERY nice (if they dont rip). I am rating the pre-fixed grips, so they may get better later down the road.

dye dm5, 88/4,500 pure energy carbon fiber wrapped nitro tank, a titanium dye boomstick, blade flat trigger, a eVLution II, and a dye rhino tank cover.
It's comfortable and never rips, slips, or fits bad.

It is worth the money, not that expensive either for a good quality grip. BUY IT!!!!
Spyder Imagine - ANS High Rise - Bandit Delrin Bolt - Empire Reloader - Smart Parts 2002 All American - CP Dropforward - Spyder Sticky Grips
Fit Great (New Batch)
Groove for trigger finger
Colors are off
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.
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.

at first they are vary nice and comfertable
cool little jem
the back starts to rip off in about a week
well this was my first set of dye gripies the only bad was the rippage other than that nothing bad about them they are very comf. and soft i only paid 25 bucks so not to expensive they come in clear blue black red and yellow so it will definitly match your gun
these are definitly better then any stock grip and not vary pricy other than the ripping vary good
these are the coolest looking grips i have ever seen ever ! the best part was how they looked on my gun, for the 30 seconds until the ripped ! these grips are useless !!!!!!! the store i bought them from shipped all of them back, cuz every pair they sold tore and was returned ! good for you dye ! u made your first crappy product ever !
i say anyone who has to much money, and likes how they look should buy them and hang them on the wall, because if you put them on ur gun they will just tear !!!!!! DONT BUY DONT BUY DONT BUY DONT BUY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really is sticky grip
Makes the grip a little wide
Window doesn't exactly match the display
I really like these grips and got them for a great price. The main reason i bought these was because i was afraid that with the stock grips on my Spyder Pilot, the electronics would get screwed up by water or dirt getting in. These fixed the problem and create a much better seal. Also, the DYE Sticky grips are much more comfortable and look better then the stock grips. The only real complaint i have is the window doesn't exactly match up with the color display. I can still see it to change modes, though, so it's fine.
These grips were a great buy and an easy fix to protect your electronics. Plus, they are made by DYE so you know it's gonna be a good product.
stock grips on my pilot.
The stock grips on my old TL-X (kinda similar)
Spyder pilot acs '05: 14" tru flight barrel
low rise clamping feed neck
run on co2 (tank size varies)
Display a little off to the view spot.
These have to be one of the best things i bought for my gun. They fit perfectly on the handle. As stated above the display is a little off but isn't that big of a deal. I don't think that they change the look of the gun much at all. But the comfort level u feel in your hand is a whole different story. These feel some much better against your hand over the feel of the the stock grips. If you don't care about the color you get then you can find these for around $10 if you shop smart. However if you want black then $16 is the best I could find.
If you find that your stock grip isn't that comfortable on your had. Buy these. You will not regrate it.
