A slightly shorter 90 degree frame would be my preference. The reversed Y and Z are way too strange for me.

lol yea i know its SP...but its a well thought out frame, huge slotted trigger guard, recessed frame screws, threaded trigger & board screws, and the snatch grip slides in the back and is held in place by the rear screw. needs magnetic trigger return though. im not crazy about springs.

and theres the aka frame, its almost exactly like the fbm frame on doats merlin, but the hump is more even and not placed as far down.

90 frame all the way. I shot an angel for a while and loved it. One of the drawing attractions of the SR was the frame. (which, might I add, is amazing)

Ton for ton, I agree with Shadow, they should just make the SR frame available aftermarket.

It also needs the pivot point to be farther back. If someone's going to make an aftermarket frame for E-Blade users, I'd at least want the trigger geometry improved.

i can understand that completely, it'll be getting a violent trigger, the shape should make up for that. but i think another advantage of having the pivot point back means theres more meat in front of it for the pretravel, and return strength..just having that placed there makes the trigger more balanced, the stock one feels a little "back heavy".

90 or 45.. humpback is cool too.
but aftermarket grips are very important to aftermarket guys that would buy such

Yea, when you feel the trigger on guns like Timmies or Quests, you realize just how important it is to have the pivot point behind the trigger. It's a drastic difference in balance and feel. 45 humpback or 86* hybrid angle would be perfect with proper trigger geometry.

In regards to grips I personally like dye stickies.

no matter what you say, the UL frame w/ the dye stickies on it will always be most comfy

I couldn't put my finger on it before, but this is definitely what I feel is not quite right about the eblade trigger.

It's also what's keeping me from doing an Ego frame mod. The pivot point on Ego frames is still above the trigger, not behind it.

every 45 frame is comfortable when you're holding the marker down.. now try to put it into shooting position, and take a look at your shooting hand... you're gonna realize that because of the frame geometry, your hand doesn't even really grab the frame, it's just there to put the fingers in trigger position... With a 90 degree or any other frame that is twisted to the other side (like the y frame), you can ACTUALLY also grab the frame with that hand while you're shooting... plus it helps keeping your elbow in.
I'm seeing most of us will prefer inverted frames instead of a normal 45
