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.

Protects my electronics
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.
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.
9 because they get slippery.

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
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

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
