Or you can use your stock grip and cut a hole for the OLED screen like I did on my G4.

Lexan is basically a hard plastic (according to wiki). I too would be in the hunt for soft grips that work with the APE oled board.

Nobody makes rubber grips for the APE OLED equipped "G series" marker. APE looked into having quality rubber grips with a window in them, made for their boards, but the cost was so ridiculous, that it would have almost doubled the price of their boards. That's why they went with the lexan grips by Stinger Paintball Designs.

Virtue made some rubber grips for the "G series" markers, but they were AWFUL!

Your best bet is to get a stock set of DP grips, and cut a window in them. It's not an easy mod, but will be totally worth it when you're done.

Seriously....try getting a nice pair of gloves before you go through all the trouble with the grips. I have a pair of gloves that I got so used to wearing, that I hate playing without them. You can find a lot of gloves for a resonable price by clicking here to go to the ANSGear site.

Take the ape grips and photo copy them at 100% (so there's no change). Cut out the photocopy and use it as a template by lining up the screw holes. Make your marks, cut from the back side out, and maybe use a little heat to clean up edges. Done! :-)

The mod should be pretty straightforward. Measure the screen, and add about a 2mm clearance on either side. Cut out a piece of paper to those dimensions and use double sided tape to adhere to the screen, and another piece to allow the paper to stick on the grip. Press grip to frame and check to see if the paper sticks.

Next, use an Xacto Knife to cut out the "window". Next, select the thickness of lexan you want. I'd probably recommend 1/4". Using a jeweler's saw, cut out the shape of the window, preferably so it fits snugly in the hole. Then, using epoxy (this is a must), secure the window in the hole. Let dry for 24 hours. And you're done!
