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.

~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.

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.
I have not used any other types of "grips". I felt the stock grips on my Pilot were at best "lacking" so I got this guy to replace them.

Well as you already know I got these to replace the stock grips. These grips are obviously in a whole different world. As opposed to two separate, thin, uncomfortable, minimal protection (for electronics) the Dye 3 Sticky grip is a one piece construction. Very comfortable and allows for a very natural feel when you hold onto the trigger frame. The added comfort as well as support make it easier to balance the marker in general. I am happy I purchased this product. Oh and of course, there is the definite cool factor as well as improved "look" factor.
A huge improvement over what I had on previously (stock grips). A very nice product. The old grips would have gotten either a 3 or a 4 as a rating, the Dye grips are in the 8 to 9 range.

Not that "sticky"
$20+ and the screws don't fit
OK, I'll be honest. I'm very much disappointed with the Dye Sticky 3s. I got a clearance deal on these so they didn't cost over $20, but I definitely wouldn't buy them at that price, and I'd hesitate to even buy them at half the normal cost. The real problem is that they aren't that "sticky". My stock Ion and Autococker grips feel basically just as good as these. Of course I had to use the stock screws to get these on since Dye figured that proper ones weren't needed. The only real advantage was that they looked awesome. However $20+ is way too much to pay for something of that sort.
I was expecting much more than this. Dye should cut the price in half before I ever buy another one. The pros and cons equal out, so that's where my rating is.
I just got some of these grips with the bushmaster i just bought. These grips are amazing. Even compared to my Wrath's grips, which are pretty comfy mind you, these things are 1337. It makes holding the marker a pleasure. They are soft, supportive, and carry a good name. The fact you can get them for almost any paintgun makes them very appealing to most players. They are basically the only aftermarket grips that are worth a damn.
Definitely a AGG addition to any marker. Pick them up if you get a a chance.

Ok So I Want Better Grips Because My E2 And Kranivor Grips Were So Uncomfortable And Ripped. So My Paintball Store Carries These And I Hear They Are Comfortable And Rarely Rip So I Buy Them. They Give U A Good Feel And Are Comfortable Which Is Important Since You Have To Hold You're Gun The Whole Game.

Rocker E-Trigger display is offcenter
I was more than happy with the stock grip on my Spyder, until I bought the Rocker trigger. That trigger had the cheapest grip I think I had ever seen (bulged out so you could actually see inside your trigger). So, I purchased this grip.
First thing, this grip is comfortable. I really like the way it fits my hand. Second, it is almost as sturdy as the original grip on the stock gun. I don't get any warping or bubbling like I did on the other. This was an INCREDIBLE upgrade from the grip that came with the e-trigger. It is really a quality product.
My only minor complaint is that the window for the display on the trigger does not line up with the actual display as well as it could. You can still see all the settings, but you see a little of the inside of the trigger and it cuts the top off some. But not that big of a deal.
This is a quality product and I am very happy that I bought it. If you purchase the Spyder Rocker e-trigger, just go ahead and put this in your basket too (you will be happy you did).
These grips are very very comfy. probably the most comforatable grips ive ever felt, and very sticky. i loved how they run around the back of the frame. i have heard they have issues with durability....but they are a softer material than most grips. that is what makes them so comfy. my only objection is that the main part of these grips is a hard plastic skeloton kinda that the sticky stuff is connected to. well it might not fit on the back of your frame, and might have some edges sticking out. you just cotta snip them off....no biggie.
If you are really big into comfy grips.....i dont think it gets better than this. however, there is always room for improvement, so 9.
