Testing alternative grip material
20

Stupid rubber grips never seem to hold up very well. Mine has started expanding and the corners were coming free. Therefore, rather than ordering a replacement, I'm testing a 3D printed grip, printed using carbon fibre infused nylon.
This is a preliminary version printed in PLA to check the fit. With any luck the Nylon grip will be completed later tonight.

Main advantages are that it should be essentially impervious to oils, sunblock, etc, and should maintain its shape permanently.
