Need Input on Grip Options

I've used the VZ grips in several configurations. I love the look, but none were quite grippy enough for me. I do live in the hot, humid South, however. I have come to like the Kensight Sharkskin 1911 panels lately. Not as sexy as the VZ, but for functionality, I prefer them for shooting.

The vz grips are great! Anyone ever try stippling a set of magpul grips to get maximum grip?

My buddy tried that and it didn't come out the way he wanted and he did a aggressive job on them. When he was done it looked like a train wreck. Needless to say he put them right in the trash. But maybe a pro at stippling may have done a better job. He's not the sharpest knife on the bunch.

Another vote for the Kensight Sharkskins. They provide a great grip regardless of how wet and sweaty your hands get.

VZ gunners are okay too... I found that I really like sandpaper grips - so you could always look for TRP style grips or make your own.

I've stippled ergo plastic grips before too and that worked great... think you can find those for ~20 bucks so it's not a huge loss if you screw them up.

VZ Recons are what you are looking for. Golf-ball type pattern, very grippy in all conditions.

Another vote for VZ recons. I started with operator2s and loved them till I got a set of recons. The recons are the entire grip in the same pattern as the front half of the operator2s. Awesomely aggressive. Theyre the perfect grip for me.

DSPerman 19-20 grips. 2011 feel and light enough to make weight. Bit pricy and you have to fit them to your frame but worth it.

i like grip tape for all weather conditions. up until i almost cut my pinkie off, I just used the cheapest smooth wood grips I could find and put grip tape on them. Now my strong hand pinkie doesn't bend at the last joint anymore, so the DSPerman grips are sufficiently wider that my pinkie doesn't get in the way. I am quite fond of them now.
