Better quality grips?

Hello, i have a demon but the grips are the worst i have ever seen, they just destroy themselves. Will vanguard be putting better grips on the 2013 models? Does any other company make aftermarket ones? X

2013s come with the same grips. You can order acrylic grips from Stinger Paintball, they make them to fit the Creed/Demon frame.

I'm working on some custom acrylic grips myself right now that will have some sand blasted imagery on them...could do your art or mine. I'm just starting right now.

Also working on some custom triggers.

Acrylic is plastic. My hole team uses them, but we also all wear good gloves. Like Juggernaut said, if you're wearing gloves, it's not problem. Plus, they protect your board better in my opinion.

They really do need to do something about those grips. The rubber is just way too weak and flimsy.

NT's ergonomics are amazing because of the UL / hourglass shaped frame though, not just the grips. You'd have a hard time fitting them to a demon.

I've seen acrylic grips before (not sure if they were stinger ones or not) that had a criss-cross pattern etched into them so that they weren't slippery. Could be worth a shot.

I don't mind flat pannel grips. Aside from the breakout who really holds the grips tight anyway? I'm too old now to slide so..........panels are fine. I think I'll check out stinger.

Eric/Shootnpoo used to stock a blackout kit for creeds (and maybe demons?) which included some panel grips too. But that was a while ago so not sure if he'd still have stock.
