Traditional rubber grips are comfortable and help cushion recoil, but tend to be too thick for good concealment. Meanwhile, traction tape grips are nice and thin, and offer good traction, but they do nothing to absorb shock, and tend to peel off over time.
Grip Bands were designed to offer the perfect middle ground between these two grip choices. They offer the thin profile of traction tape, with the comfort and shock absorbing characteristics of rubber.
In essence, Grip Bands are a modernized version of the bike inner tube grip, using a stronger and softer rubber better suited for pistols.
EPDM is tougher and more tear resistant than the butyl rubber used in inner tubes, and Grip Bands are extruded without a seam, which makes them more comfortable to hold.
The result is a very thin and clean looking grip:
EPDM has a very nice feel to it. It is softer to the touch than other brands of slip on rubber grips, and provides much more traction than a bare polymer grip, which can become slippery, especially when wet.
The other advantage of EPDM is its elastic nature. Used for industrial strength rubber bands, it can be stretched to fit even unusually large pistols like the FN Five Seven.
Grip Bands are sold as a 3-Pack, and come with a razor blade. Installation is simply a matter of scooting the band onto your pistol, then trimming off the excess with the razor blade. Each band is 2"x4."
Grip Bands are a very simple product, but I'm confident that once you try them, you'll want them on all of your pistols.
Grip Bands are Made in the USA.
