    haha good to know. I probably should have read about them. If they were wooden they would be nice. I bought a set of esmeralda's anyways, i was just showing anyone who cared.

    Cheap plastic, yes.
    Great tool, yes.
    I have seen many "look at me" grips made from just about anything to Woolly Mammoth tusks. The Woolly Mammoth tusks don't do any thing more than a 15 dollar set of wood grips. CT's do the job of regular grips and more.

    I just don't like the way they're marketed. Same as your "carbon fiber" which is actually printed plastic too.

    That is why it is called a Carbon Fiber finish. I have a Flame finish gips only because I got them super cheap, but does anyone that has a lick of sense think they are made of real flames?

    Some folks have to use commonsense or do a bit of homework.
