Very comfortable, very grippy, made by dye, makes your gun look good
price, makes people jelous if they don't have a dye sticky
Well, it is a very comfortable grip and it makes your gun look a lot cooler. It is more sticky (grippy) than a smart parts grip but we'll get to that in a moment. This is a dye product, so it gives you the assurence of quality, but then again it gives you an @$$ pain for price. Although the price didn't really matter, because i got this grip for free. Now for how I got this grip, just made my day. My spyder xtra's trigger frame lost a screw, which made my gun deffective. So i went to my paintball store and the owner fixed the problem with the frame, He noticed my Smart Parts grip that i had on the frame at the time. He told me that he had a freak barrel kit, and since my grip had
"The Freak" written on it, he wanted it so badly. So he says "I'll trade you a new dye sticky grip (that was like $47 canadian, and yes i always wanted a dye sticky but at that price there is no freakin way) and 5 bucks for your freak grip. I was laughing so hard in my head because i got that freak grip for only 20 bucks and now hes givin me a $47 grip and 5 bucks! I said "ITS A DEAL!!!" very quickly and I have to honestly say: Although i miss my old freak grip in away, This dye sticky grip is a lot more comfortable and stickier. And the way i look at it is that Smart parts is dye's only competition really. I mean, even though i haven't tried 32* grips, how the hell can they compare right? Although they wouldn't be that bad, I have to say that all in all, The dye sicky grip, is the best grip that ever lived.
The End... lol
It is the best grip out today. I have tried the best, and they don't compare to this grip. You have my word for it.
I Have a Tribal Twister with : Lightened Microswitch, Trigger Job, Sidewinder Reg., Micro Rock LPR, Red Valve, Stickies, and just a stock barrel. In the future hope to get an AA or something. with a CrossFire 68/45
They feel way way better than stock grips, nice comfy, grips that your hand can wrap around and your fingers can sink into the grooves. I love them
The price. How much does it cost to make these things? Not that much, but the price is pretty high. I geuss you get what you pay for though, they sure are comfy.
They feel really comfortable, and are a great upgrade for comfort if nothing else. Im sure cheaper grips are just as comfy, so If I was to buy again, I would prolly look for cheaper ones, but it is really up to you. I have been using these since I first started and would never ever go back to stock grips. they are that comfrotable
If you have to be like everyone else and have dye equipment get them they are great... If you want comfort but not for such a hefty price, just buy soem imitations.
I got these grips for 5$. My local store had said they'd stopped selling them a while ago, but I managed to find a couple of these in the bargain bins. I got a red one. Looks great on my marker. Feels great. Nothing gets into your grip frame with these on.
If you find these for a good price, buy them! They are amazing!

they are comfortable
doesn't come with the right screws form my grip frame but thats ok
these grips are sweet, they are made by dye so you know they kick @$$. they have a great grip and i don't drop my marker during the rain anymore. they are kinda expensive for grips but i don't care. i looooove these grips, they look so nice on your gun too.
get these grips for your 45 frame, it is worth it and you will be very pleased with the cool new look of your gun.
Smart Parts 14" All American
Keeps the dirt out
Pricey for plastic
The screws didn't fit
Can render electronic Spyders incapable of firing*
The stock grip on the Fenix is crap. It only serves to keep your hand off the electronic components but any dust or dirt or whatever can get right in there. The sticky grip eliminates this problem. It's very comfortable aesthetically and physically. I encountered two problems with this right off the bat however:
-The screws included with it were made for an allen wrench and I thought "Hey, awesome. Now the important external screws on the gun needs a 3mm allen wrench." Bummer, they didn't fit. I just used the originals and left my paintball toolbox as-is.
-*This is what i was talking about in the weaknesses portion. On the grip there is a groove for your thumb. It is forseeable that if you have an Fenix and you're running with a firm grip, you could stop the metal pulsating dealie from moving, thereby bringing your rate of fire down to 0bps. Thats IF you own a Fenix, IF you place your thumb there, and IF you grip it too tightly
I bought it on a Friday and tested it out on Saturday and Sunday and there was one instance in which the gun would not fire because of the new grip. It was during a sprint and didn't cost me anything but it was a bit annoying. It hasn't happened since (without me trying to do it) and I don't think i'll be looking at any other grips in the near future for my marker.
Overall it's a good grip, although, the clear plastic portion doesn't exactly line up with my LED and it's a bit costly. It is still infinitely better than the stock Fenix'.
I don't know that i'd buy this product again at the same price. I'd be happy to pay anywhere from $15-$18 for it, but not 25.

-Add More Grip
-Won't Perfectly Fit Every Gun
These are awsome grips. I bought mine off of a friend who's had them for a while and to my surprise, they were still sticky!
Hence the name "DYE Sticky Grips". These grips are very sticky and can help hold your gun better.
Way better than any stock grips I have tryed. These grips have a thicker, softer body on them. They feel great on bare hands.
-Add More Grip
Stock grips....well they just suck. These grips and their stickyness help hold your gun up.
These will definetly improve the look on any gun. And the DYE logo imprinted on the grips show off that you purchased a fine grip. DYE sure knows how to make them.
-Won't Perfectly Fit Every Gun
This is true. Especially for my 98 custom. I had a hard time trying to keep them on the grip so I could screw them in. Well, I screwed them in and noticed that extra 'wing' of rubber hanging off the back of my gun. You can easily just cut this, but these grips are way too nice.
Perfect for any player. These are a definate improvment over the stock grips.
You know you're getting quality because they're made by DYE. A perfect brand to show you're a true, smart paintball shopper.

more you use 'em they stickier they get
fit most guns
Unfortunately i had to cut my grip a bit to make it fit my bushy.
I love these things. i didnt think grips were a big deal untill i played with my good buddies gun that had stickies. these actually make a difference. you never have to worry about dropping your gun when diving into bunkers. if that doesnt sell you, they look wicked sweet on any gun.
Sweet grips. sellin for cheap like 10 bucks now that they are old.

Custom Products ASA with On/Off
Dye Sticky Grips
- Comfy grips
- Easy to grab on the fly
- Kinda pricey I guess ($20)
These actually came with my gun, but are very comfortable and have a very distinct "feel" to them. You can easily just grab them and your fingers go to the right places, and without over exerting yourself you can have a death grip on your marker. Dye is generally overpriced, but their products are high quality for paintball.
Its a cosmetic upgrade, so if you like it, buy it, if you don't, get something else. It works great for me, and if you like them, they will serve you well.
Rating: 9.5 (rounds to 10)
Why: Because the price is somewhat high, but its a cosmetic upgrade so that can be expected. If you like it, buy it, they are great grips.

Well this is really only to add some style to your gun and make your gun more comfy for you. Otherwise thats it. It isnt the holy grail to pb there just grips. But they are very good comfy grips. Other than that I really cant say to much. There just nice comfy grips.
If you want new comfy grips and to add to your guns looks get these, they do the job.
