Exclamation Help me buy the clone gt!

So I want to buy the clone gt very badly... My only concern is the feel in the hands. I own a VX'd clone and love the feel. Will it feel similar to the original clone or more like a luxe??

The GT is VERY NICE. It has a longer grip to it like the luxe. the only thing i do not like about the gt are the grips. they are too rough. i prefer my VX ones.

The grip frame has basically same dimensions as the V1/V2/VX Clones except some of the edges have been rounded off, specifically in the back of the grip frame. It feels less "boxy" this way and I think you'll like it.

The grips are a harder rubber. Some people like them, some prefer the VX grips. I like them as they are very durable.

It's almost the same feeling as the luxe except more comfortable since it's shorter length.

in comparison to a luxe and a vx (was comparing yesterday actually) the feel is just amazing more solid feeling than a luxe and just feels more natural in your hands than the vx i found. Only big difference to me is the back cap of the GT kinda seems to stick out more towards you than the vx (annoys some, but i don't mind). It is very much about opinion though! but if u like the vx feel you'll love the GT feel

I just replaced my old VX grip with new GT and the are very tight, to the point I actually had to take out a file out and take them down a little on the part of the grip that wraps around.

In regards to their feel, they are very stiff compared to the old grips which some people like and some don't. This is my only sticking point, personally the rubber formulation that they used on the old grips was off and the new ones are a little hard. If they found something In between the two it would be perfect!

I hadn't tried to put the GT grips on my VX yet (since my VX ones are in great shape and I have a brand new set still unused), so thanks for the info. But yeah, grips always provide mixed opinions regardless!

I don't even notice the gun while I'm playing, it is very comfortable and seems to fall right into place while aiming. You won't be disappointed!
