    Looking for practical daily use rubber grips for my J frame round butt. Pachymar or Hogue. What are your preferences?

    TIA

    I prefer Hogue's Bantam grips or a everyday CCW Smith J-frame~!:D

    I like Uncle Mike's boot grip. I believe they are standard on most S+W new j-frames. The skinny wood grips (if that's what yours is wearing) look better, I think, and might have a slight edge in pocket carry, being a little slimmer and wood not gripping fabric in your pocket like rubber, but the boots work well.

    I've used Hogues on a couple of J frames. But given the choice, i'll go with the Pachymars everytime.They just seem to work better for me on a J frame than the Hogues.

    For the rubber grips, the bantams mentioned before are pretty darn good. The only others that I prefer (non-rubber) are the Eagle Grips Secret Service. Really nice, conceal well and if price doesn't bother you, the stag grips are pretty cool.

    I've got Pachmayr Compaq Pro on all my J-frames and round butt K-frames.

    Hogue working well for me.

    My Dad gave me his 36 awhile back and I put a Hogue grip on and I shoot this gun a great deal. It works great for both my hand and my wife's as well.

    I use the Uncle Mike's Boot Grips on my M38, they are patterned after Craig Spegel's design, I prefer the checkering on the Boot Grips to the smooth finish on Spegel's wood versions.

    Uncle Mike's Combat, or Pachmayr if I'm going with a boot grip.
