    Am I the only one who dislikes vert frames?

    *Warning* Rant *Warning*

    Seriously, is everyone else so in love with vert frames that they fail to see that they just arent comfortable? you try and pick up a vert framed gun, and your wrist goes into this unnatural shape (ironic that thats what they seek to solve...), and when you try and aim...your wrist either has to be the full length of your arm away, or else the balls fly in all directions.

    On the Plus side, they make your gun look cool, and cost lots of money!

    Sounds like your holding it wrong.

    Edit: or maybe they just aren't for your personal style. Different strokes...

    I prefer 45's... the way I have the gun setup (no drop), its more comfortable that way...

    personally, i find it quite hard to hold a vert framed marker in ANY position! but, then again, im a back/mid player, not some monkey crammed into a 3x3 bunker

    These days many players arent actually holding their markers firmly by the grip frame, but with their left hand on the foregrip. That way they can easily walk their trigger with their right hand(assuming they are right-handed).

    Try walking your trigger and holding it firmly at the same time. Its not easy.

    If you walk you trigger, notice the angle of your hand. It would closely conform to the angle of a vert frame.

    If it doesnt for you, oh well. It does for most others. Which is why vert frames are desired by many.
    I suppose i am limp wristed or something, but when I tried a was/eye'd A4 for a game, i just kept trying to hold it up without putting my left hand under the ASA, but couldnt, my wrist nearly freakin collapsed! meh, Someday I shall probably succumb...

    Nicely said and written Rogue. I too am a fan of the comfort of a vert frame, but I personally find I can shoot faster with a 45 cause i tend to wrap the inside of my thumb around the back of the grip to stable my hand... just my style. I find when i do that with a vert frame, my fingers lose position from time to time and i lose rhythm and valuable shooting ability. If i was to play Front, I'd use a vert frame cause it feels better on ym hands and I don't have to worry about spraying paint too much, but I play back preferably, and I have always been much better with a 45 style.

    Then again, that's ALL me. No one else.

    Btw, Rogue, any thoughts on making a electro version some day of this grip?

    you know, i like them, they are comfey, but playing 5 years with a 45, has made me accustomed to a 45 angled type grip. when i had my speed, i found the vert frame very hard to rip on, which was my main dislike for the speed and the vert frame

    Again, as with everything it comes down to personal preferance!!! If you find it uncomfortable, don't put one on your gun!!! I personaly don't care for them, therefore I do not have one!! If you like them, then by all means, get one and enjoy it!! Yes folks, it really is that simple!!!

    Right now I am using the Pro Team Products Benchmarck trigger frame on my mag right now, and it seems to be just right for me,
    that would be a 45 grip right?
