So I need better grips to help with recoil on my .357 Magnum. I want something that covers the backstrap and led me to Pachmayr.

What is the difference between the Decelerator model and non-Decelerator Gripper model? Unless I am missing a negative here, it sounds like a no brainer to get the Decelerator version. Is there a downside?

Both have thin cross sections. You might want to consider a set of Pachmayr Presentation grips instead.

The Decelerator is made of a much softer rubber compound than the standard Gripper. This means that it significantly reduces felt recoil: but, on the other hand, it's more "grippy" than the standard Gripper, which means that if you want to conceal it under a shirt or jacket, the covering material will stick on the Decelerator and show its presence. Great for general shooting and recoil absorbtion: not so great for CCW.
