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. By design the Sticky 3 grip will become more tacky as you use it. A new Sticky 3 grip will have an oily shine that will dissipate upon use. After several uses, the texture will develop a worn look that will provide a tackier surface for better gripping. The pigmented material in the Sticky 3 may vary slightly from grip to grip and color to color. This pigment variation may also affect the softness from grip to grip.
The Dye E-Spyder Sticky 3 Grips are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.

Awesome looking, very sticky, feel.
Uhhh, somewhat big?
I just got these grips in the mail from ebay for about 23 bucks. They come in a cool little box and a dye sticker is included. For all you pilot owners out there you dont have to cut the grip to get them on just slide them through the bottom grip shroud thingy. I love the way these make my gun look and feel . The stock grips just suck, no questions asked.
I LOVE these grips awesome additon to any spyder!!!!!
Hard stock grips that dig into your hand... or soft rubbery grip that molds to your hand?
Wich would you prefer?

None at all!
These grips are the best thing to come along for paintball markers! They are soft, squishy and they hold up well even in rough dirty games. I play alot of woodsball and even when these grips get muddy and wet they still retain their grip and softness. This is the best grip you can buy for a Spyder and I guarentee you that you wont be dissapointed. The grips are also very easy to install on your gun. They also look pretty bad-ass if you ask me.
I cant find anything wrong with these grips except for the fact that more people need to buy them for their guns! I will make a bet with players that if they put one of these on their gun, their hand will be alot more comfortable at the end of the day then with the stock hard grips.

Very comfortable feel
No more worries about dropping your marker
These Dye Stickies are amazing. I hd been waiting for them to come out for spyders, and now they're here. I recently purchased the rocking trigger frame (which is also an amazing upgrade), and the factory grips on that thing were extremely uncomfortable. I went to my local Dropzone and dropped $25 bucks on the stickies and it has made a world of difference. No more trying to find the right hand-hold on your marker and no more worrying about dropping it when your running and shooting.
These Dye stickies are the most comfortable grips I have encountered. Especially for all of you who have the rocker and hate the grips, I would buy these immediately. It's a must!
Any regular old stock grips, hard plastic - these dye sticky grips are the best grips u can buy

I love these grips. These are the best grips you can buy. They make your gun easier to carry, and just feel good. I love these grips, i really haven't played with them but used them target practicing and my gun felt so much better, and looked cooler. I dont know what else to say so i'll leave u all with a quote no maybe not
I give these a 10 because they do what they r supposed to do and more.
Spyder Fenix ACS Green, Viewloader Revvy, 14 inch Proto One Piece, Dye Sticky 3 grips
Extremely Comfy, Looks Sweet.
Got through the mail really fast but that has nothing to do with it. They are extremely comfortable, and look sweet. They fit perfectly, and were not hard to attach whatsoever. Errr.... Well I need a 50 word minium, so I'm just writing random crap until I fill up the requirement...a small con is that the windows for the grips don't EXACTLY match up with the board light shpeal, but you can tell what mode it's on, so it's aight.
Great grips, and pretty good price for sticky grips.

Very comfortable! Wraps all the way around.
The first time I used these I thought they were a little thick but the more I used them I more I liked them. They wrap around the front of the trigger frame so I think that adds a lot to the comfort thing. I wish I would've bought these grips earlier! I had no idea what an improvement they would be. Well worth the $25.

-view window is in the WRONG place
-too thick up top?
First off, these feel fantastic on my Fenix. However, the view window to allow you to see the CAMD display is placed too far back on the grip, so you cant see the top row of LEDs looking straight on... a slight miscalculation, but should have been taken into account. Also, i can feel a few of the parts in my electronic handle operating because the rubber grip at the top presses up against them, which worried me a little, but hasnt affected performance to my knowledge.
But those things are trivial, these are excellent grips, fit your hand sooo nicely and give your marker a much more secure feel in your grip.
Get it! You'll be glad you did. 9 of 10 because of the above discrepancies.
Feels much better than the stock "grips"
Screws don't fit
Window too small for CAMD display
Interferes with solenoid
These grips feel so much better than the stock excuses for grips especially if you have big hands. I thought the stock grips made it feel like I was holding onto a piece of a 2x4 and found myself not holding onto it well during play. They give the whole gun a higher quality look and feel if that makes sense.
I can't believe that DYE hasn't addressed the screw size issue yet. I was reading the other reviews and assumed that this was some early supply issue that probably had been worked out after a few months on the market but I was wrong. This isn't a big deal because you can just use the stock screws but it's such a dumb mistake that they need to fix it.
Also, for my Pilot (and I assume other E-Spyders with the CAMD display) the window is too narrow. You can still see the information but not if you're looking straight at it from the side. The good news is that you can see everything from the shooting position. If you have an LED display (Like on the Imagine or aftermarket boards) this probably
won't be an issue.
EDIT: I've been having an almost constant "burping" issue over the past few weeks and was unable to figure it out (Changed O-Rings, etc.). Someone at the field suggested that it could be the grips interfering with the solenoid. I switched back to the stock grips and the problem went away. I could see the marks on both sides of the Dye grips where they were hitting the moving portion of the solenoid and stopping the spring from returning the solenoid/sear to the cocked position. I had to go in with a dremel and sand away part of the inside of the grip to eliminate the problem. I've had it with these grips! They are a waste of money and I can't believe Dye didn't do more homework on their design.
All of that said I don't think they're worth the $25 price tag. If you can get a deal on them for, say about $18 or less then go for it.
I'll go with a 7 (-1 for screws, -1 for the small window, -1 for the price)
Drop the price $5-7, fix the screw issue and they'd get a 9-10
I'm revising my 7 rating down to a 2 due to the solenoid issue. I only give a 2 because they're comfortable and look nice. These are grips, I never imagined that the could have so many functional design flaws from a company like Dye and at $25 a pop!
