    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.

    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.

    G10 all the way. They're indestructible and most patterns are made to Bite into your hand and not let go.

    I found that soft is relative.

    If you have a nice set of wood grips, that fit like a glove, it feels better then any rubber grip.
    I also was the opinion, that I must have a set of Paychmar signature oder american Legend grips on my Series 70, but then I slpapped on the Nill competition grips and I love them.
    Very warm feeling, the texture is very nice and it just fits like a glove.
