Review of Stinger Paintball Designs (SPD) custom grips

I needed some new grips for my custom anno'd A-Bomb Intimidator and figured I would give SPD a try. The cost was competitive to other grips, but these were 100% custom.

I contacted them via the website and received a reply almost instantly and thus began my design communications with SPD.

First let me tell you the speed at which SPD communicates with its customers is outstanding. I am used to waiting a day or two for a response, but not SPD. For the most part I was getting responses back within an hour of e-mailing them. That really is amazing. It really helped during the design because it did not take days to get samples back. From start to finish it took five business days and that includes getting the grips to me. Three days of design refinements and actually making the grips, and two days to get the grips to me using Priority mail from the USPS.

I got the grips in a standard padded envelope. The grips were in a zip top type bag with the grips, instructions and shorter blacked out screws.

Here are the grips in the bag and removed showing the contents:

The grips are very well made and the color and image are exactly as shown in my original design. No deviation at all. The back side of the grips has a protective film on them to keep the image from getting scratched (that was one of my concerns, so this was a nice touch)

Here is the back of the grips showing the coating:

They are very comfortable in your hands and look great to boot.

Over all I am very pleased with the SPD grips, the SPD customer service and the look on the marker. If you want something to customize your marker and make it unique, give SPD a call. You will get nothing but professional and custom work!

SPD grips are top notch, I have ordered a bunch through them, most can be found on there site. Design comes out exactly as I send it in, couldn't be happier. Also the fact that your custom design is safe from being copied is a plus.

Edit:
Found some of my designs on there site:

I'm in total agreement with Bamf and Muddytaco. My experience with SPD was great. I sent my template to them in the morning had an answer back that afternoon.Gave my approval and 4 days later my grips arrived. These guys are top notch http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/1807/dark2zu7.jpg

I can't say I was impressed with mine. I bought them a little while back and the image was distorted looking.

Post a picture of what you are talking about. I have now gotten 3 sets of grips from them and all are EXACTLY how I send them the images.

do you know if they can do the grips in a colored acrylic and then leave some of the protective paper off so you can see through them?

SPD rocks! Phenominal customer service/communications and super quality products. I sent a picture that I wanted for my Ripper 3 and they emailed me back within hours with 3 different renditions, corrected picture quality and had the panels to me within 5 days from ordering. See for yourself.
