AGD Releases the Y-Grip
Ever wonder why your paintball marker's gripframe looks like one you could put on an actual firearm?
While pistol-esque gripframes are ergonomically correct for real guns, they are not for paintball. Why? Because many players use short, compact gun/bottle setups. With this sort of setup, a pistol type grip makes you cock your hand sharply forward at an extreme angle. This positioning causes unnecessary stress upon your wrist and tendons. That's why AGD developed the Z-Grip, which was introduced in 199x. Now, we proudly present the Z-Grip's successor, the Y-Grip.
Sure, the Y-Grip may look weird and different. Whatever you may think of its looks, the Y-Grip's benefits are real. Angling the grip forward actually makes more sense ergonomically. With the Y-Grip's forward angle, your hand and forearm are lined up naturally...no more stress on your wrist!
In addition to its ergonomic features, the Y-Grip also has a bracket inside for mounting a roller microswitch. With this microswitch (available from Radio Shack™) and a bit of simple wiring, you can intellifeed your Warp Feed™ or your hopper.
The new Y-Grip is compatible with the Automag, Minimag, RT, and RT Pro markers. The Y-Grip, with an MSRP of $120, is available in gloss black and polished nickel finishes.
These features, combined with Airgun Designs' legendary reliability and customer service, make the new Y-Grip a great new way to personalize your AGD marker. Comfortable. Fast. Lightweight. Beautiful. What more do you need in a gripframe?
The Y-Grip is the creation of Airgun Designs, a company that has brought many innovations to the paintball industry since its founding in 1988. These innovations include the Power Feed, Reactive Triggers, and the Warp Feed. Also, compressed air and fiber wrapped tanks, a common sight at paintball fields the World over, were first introduced to the paintball industry by Airgun Designs back in 1991.
