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.
Kind of hard to get on
Makes adjusting board settings harder
This is a comfortable grip that can be put on all standard 45 frame according to Dye. My grip needed some streching and pulling to get the screws lined up. I aslo had to cut near where it meets the trigger guard so it can meet the height of the top screw hole. So its either the my frame is wierd or Dye lied. The wrap around feature is nice even though I cut it off to get to the board and my buttons. I think it's an unnecessary buy, just a luxury item. Honestly this is a little better than my standard grip.
Only buy this if you really thing your grip is that bad. I give it a six because it's not necessary and gives a bit of trouble, but still comfy

Provides good grip
These grips are excellent! They provide a perfect, sticky fit. I have these grips on my old Spyder as well and was so pleased with them, I bought them for my Promaster. I think it gave my marker a somewhat professional look compared to the old grips I had with some girl posing on them.
You can decide whether the price of these grips are a strength or weakness. I got mine for $25, which may seem like a lot. However, I don't think there are any marker accessories out there that cost less than $20 these days. I mean it costs at least $30 for a decent peice of metal that holds your hopper. As horrible of an example that was, I'm trying to make somewhat of a point. Pretty much everything is paintball is "overpriced," but that's what we get for playing such an awesome sport =D.
As for weaknesses, I can only think of one. That is the back panel of the grips. It really shouldn't be a weakness however, the Promaster has a hump on the back of the trigger frame that the back panel LOVES to grip onto. It's a pain to put on and take off, especially when I have to swap batteries. I got tired of it so I just cut it off and everything is good now.
Excellent grips. I would get these over any grips any day. Weakness I stated was not Dye's fault, and it can be easily fixed if the need comes so I won't mark off.

First of all the grips come well packaged, not crushed/bent into a small package but well protected for shipping.. in a tube type pack. You open it up and instantly notice that these grips look amazing. With all of the color options, you are sure to find what you like.
Next, when you take them out of the pack you are sure to notice why they are named "Sticky." These things actually do feel as if they are sticking in your hand. They are soft, yet as durable as can feel.. Well designed, and of course the nice looking Dye logo.
Easy to install, use a little oil rubbed on the inside to slide on and off.. or, take a razor blade and slice down the angles on the back giving you the option to still take apart your 2 piece gun with ease. Using the provided stainless screws, you're just adding to the great looks of the marker with the new grips.
So you have them installed, and you pick up the gun.. you will definitely love the way these things feel. You can tell that even with sweat and paint.. you're sure to not drop your marker.
Well worth the money, all around great product based on quality and looks. I suggest them to anyone who wants a nice comfortable grip on their marker.
Can get slippery, all grips do when paint gets on them
I have used these grips for about a half a year and love them. In case any of you were wondering I modified them to fit my Piranha. If anyone wants info or pics on it, PM me.
Anyhow, these grips are fat and gel filled. I absolutely love them. They make holding my gun so much more comfortable and I can get a better grip because they are thicker. They have held up very well in my time using them, no tears or rips.
The only bad part about this is because they don't fit perfectly to my frame it makes it hard to get to some switches, but I won't put that on the grips.
And they get slippery when paint gets on them. I play indoors so it's unavoidable but it happens to all grips.
I would definitely buy these grips in a heartbeat. They are priced pretty well, and if you need an upgrade form your stock grips, don't be afraid.

This is a really nice product from dye. Once you slap thses badboys on your gun you can feel the difference right away.no more un comfortable hands. Thses things rock. You will love these things. Another awesome thing about them is that they fully cover the electronics in your gun. This was one of the first things i wanted on my gun no more blisters from hard plastic grips.
Get these grips period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you will not be dissapointed
Before i bought these i had crappy stock grips, those mother effers hurt my thumb so bad everytime i played so i decided to get these and mannn they are great! all nice and squishy. its fun when ur waiting for a game to start to mush it around...ya. anyways my thumb doesnt get all callousy and nasty anymore thanks to these grips only thing is when i screwed em on i couldnt get one screw to screw in. its nothing big because it still stays in place
Its really nice to have these its a must get for every gun that has crappy stock grips its also a nice cosmetic

~Conforms After a While
I have tried previous dye grips before and liked them so I had high expectations for these. The are really comfortable, and after a while of using them they conform to your hand. They look really good and can go with any gun, as long as it has a 45* frame. The negatives for me were the back panel (you can cut it off), unless you remove it you have to take you're ASA off every time you want to remove the grips. Also I found them to be too sticky, to me it feels kinda gross how sticky they are, my mountain bike grips are made out of the same stuff but aren't sticky so I can't see why these couldn't be like that, and since their sticky they get really dirty really easily from lint and dirt on your hands.
Good grips, great feel, but for me weren't that fantastic. 8 out of 10 because of the flaws for me.
01 autococker- upgraded pneus, frame, reg, J&J and so on.
02 autococker-new pneus, frame, reg, Scepter 3 piece, a so on
98 Custom- RT, Hyperstar bolt, BD, reg, J&J, Revy....
Comfortable, full grip covers bottom part of the spine of the grip.
1 Piece, bad for opening up frames to get to boards,
All in all, it's an excellent grip. The price is a little steep, but it's Dye, so I'll put out for it. The one piece design allows for a total wrap around of the grip, which is very ergonomic. However, if you want to open up the grip for whatever reason, you need to take off bottomline, 4 screws in grip, and slide it off. Also, if you have say a 98C, it needs to come off to take the frames apart.
I understand I didn't have to buy a 1 piece grip, so I can't complain. If you have a gun that you need to open up the grip to access internals often, then maybe this isn't for you. Otherwise, it's a fantastic looking and feeling grip!
This is a great grip, absolutely no slips! It is a little overpriced in my opinion but you'll soon forget about the price. This grip is very hard to mount onto a spyder; you will have to stretch it a bit to get it over the screwholes, and the screws it came with didn't fit my spyder but the old screws worked. I can't see any reason --other than price-- not to get this grip.
This is the best grip there is, but it isn't completely necessary so don't buy it unless you have extra money.

I bought some black Dye Sticky3's for my ion a few months ago, and all I can say is that these are like freaking hand sex. The increase in comfort is noticeable from the start. One of my favorite features is the back of the grips, as that's where your palm is. Now, I had to cut part of this piece off to accommodate my board's membrane pad, but even with half of the material gone, it feels a lot better than other grips.
The other strong feature of these grips is that they look very nice, and match a gloss finish well. Before I bought them, the gloss regulator on my ion looked awkward. However, this added accent made it blend in much more and drastically changed the look of the gun to much better.
Hybrids vs. Stickys- I don't have as much experience with hybrid grips except when holding my friend's DM4. Looks wise, its a tie, as Hybrid Grips can look much nicer than stickys when put in the right setting, but usually the appeal when comparing the two is equal. Comfort goes to the stickys by a landslide. The designs on hybrids and the thinness of the grips just gets them absolutely owned.
Weaknesses: No weaknesses on 45 stickys, but other styles where the screw is in the rubber part are said to peel and I've seen it happen.
Dye Sticky3 Grips are undoubtedly some of the best grips that money can buy.
