    I just was looking at the 2002 catalog and noticed that nearly all of the higher powered "AirLite Ti's" come with Hogue Bantams instead of Uncle Mike's. Switching to Hogue grips is the first thing I do, even before I shoot the revolver. To me, the Hogue grips look and feel better. Seem to be a little lighter also. But they must cushion recoil a bit too, else why would all those .357's come with Hogues? Agree/disagree?

    I love hogue's to but I disagree about your "cusion" statement
    Reason?.....they don't cover the backstrap like the uncle mikes
    I have hogue's on my 340 and I am not recoil sensitive so I'm keepin um:)

    The last two revolvers I've purchased had Uncle Mike's grips and they didn't cover the backstrap either. Are you talking about the next size "up" or somethng? The rubber grips on our Tauri cover the backstrap completely. Do these Uncle Mikes "snap" on? Or is there a screw in the side. Sounds interesting, but I just haven't seen any that cover the backstrap on a Smith.
    (Hey! Maybe someone could post a picture of a J-frame with the Uncle Mike's grips that cover the strap.)
