Advice on 1911 grips for Les Baer

I really dont like LB factory grips.   Need an advice on aggresive texture grips that dont make the grip too fat. Thank You.

I bought 8 pair on sale for $17.99/ea back when they were normally $19.95 (Brownells), unfortunately I sold/gave away 3 pair Sad
Still they are best slab grips out there for bullseye even at $25!

What about VZ grips? I’ve been eyeing them to give me a more aggressive texture/grip

I don't own any but I've seen some and felt some at the range. They are aggressive but sometimes depending on what model you buy they can feel sharp almost. Some people like them. I've seen high masters use them before. But honestly for what VZ grips cost, the Kensight Sharkskins are the better option just because - yes they do the job and they are affordable to get for multiple guns. I have them on both wad guns I own and my 22 (Nelson). And they are on the service pistol I'm borrowing right now.

I've got bothb sharkskin grips and VZ Simonich gunner grips. Both are really good but the VZ cost 3x as much, they are nicer looking. I put the VZ's on my main guns and sharkskinks on my backups.

I found this set a couple of years ago on ebay. 11,000.00 seemed like a good price for all those diamonds and solid gold. I think they would be perfect for you Chris. Remember, it is only money. They look pretty grippy too. 

I found them. I wasn't crazy enough to buy them..

I have a set of Diamond Back grips from VZ. They are very aggressive and work great when your hand get sweaty.
