I’m gonna sound like a newb here but what is G10? A type of polymer? Is it grippy?

Check out Henning’s grips. Great texture, slightly less palm swell than factory.

I run the Lok Palm Swell. They have the most similar profile to the stock SP-01 rubber grips. I like the texture they call Bogie. It's like a golf ball pattern. Very good grip to them.

G10 is epoxy layered Fiberglas that is heat and pressure formed, and very durable (but not invincible.) It’s not a polymer that you would think is poured into a mold and cured, typically G10 is always cut and formed to the shape that is needed. It’s super grippy depending on the cut pattern you choose, I sport a pair of LOK Grips thin Bogies on my SP-01, and after about 2 years they still feel grippy.

The Armanov SpidErgo grips are close to the factory profile but a little less thick, they have the same contours as the factory rubber, and are very grippy and made from aluminum.

Go with the Armanov's, if you don't like them I think you should be able to get your money back on a quick resale. They're relatively rare and really new grips - only been out 2 months.

I have medium sized hands (glove size 8 ) with fingers on the short side.  The LOK palm swells were too big for me.

Give your rubber grips the silicon carbide treatment. It definitely lacks the bling factor, but I think CZ nailed it on the contours and the silicon carbide makes them perfect for me at least.

For all those recommending the armanovs, no one has made mention of the best swag ever. They send a key to unlock the shopping carts at places where you have to use a quarter in order unlock them. Think of all the money you will save on "renting" shopping carts without wasting quarters.

So decided to order them. 21$ shipping.  And PayPal seems the primary way of  paying. I do not  have PayPal. They say you can use CC but do not tell you how.  

And are they honestly worth $105

Can you give a little more info about "silicon carbide" the rubber grips? Is this something you rub on or is like a special treatment? Never heard of it.

Thanks

Yes they're worth buying, but why not use cesar-shop. They're GTG, let you pay by CC, and have lower shipping than straight from armanov.

Take a pair of grips that you like and using a strong adhesive, you coat the grips with the adhesive and dip with the silicon carbide. Boom, super aggressive grippy texture. You can pick up silicon carbide at Harbor Freight or a rockhound that tumbles/polishes rocks.

Do you have a link by any chance 

 

https://cesar-shop.com/product/armanov-cz-shadow-pistol-grips-3d-spider

 

While you're there check out the RCTech stuff. Sort of interesting...

 

https://cesar-shop.com/product/advanced-7-peaces-trigger-set-rc-tech-special

 

 

I should say that I've always used the slow boat from Taipei option because shipping is about 8 or 9 USD. It's consistently been about 7-12 days for arrival, but the orders always arrive. I input the tracking number into the USPS informed delivery and it updates like any typical USPS package once clearing customs in NYC.

 

Cesar-shop has killer prices on, hard to find in the US, CZ UB items.
