Hogue rubber grips feel pretty good, they thicken the grip.

Depends on what "feel" you're looking for. Thin, thick, soft, checkering, etc. Infinite possibilities out there. Then of course comes looks. I would try out several to find what suits you.

Nill makes very nice grips. Not only for competition like mine, also regular grips.

If you want soft, you should probably look at Hogue wrap-arounds.

If you don't like the 'wrap-around', I believe Hogue also makes the rubber panels. One caution though if you conceal carry it. Depending on what your cover garment is, it may tend to cling to the rubber grips & print. Also, if you should need to shift your grip, they seem to make it more difficult for some folks.
