The Acraglas is stronger and can be died to match the grips.

Epoxies like Acraglas are good.
Depending on the application, you can often use ordinary hardware store 5 minute epoxy.
Accraglas and standard one hour epoxies give you more working time and a strong material.
One trick is to sand a similar wood, or even the original grips to get some sanding dust and mix that with the epoxy. This gives a much closer color match.
If you do this, I'd recommend using a one hour for better strength.

Well, ok - both these guys covered it perfectly. I add sanding dust (from any walnut) into the Acraglas gel and its good to go.

carpenters use wooddust and woodglue mixed, works ok... had that happen on a rosewood grip. Still holding up five years later.
