Acquired these recently, because I like the way they look and I wanted to try them out. I was hoping they were a little more "hard rubbery grippy" but they are just hard plastic. They ARE pretty darn grippy and they slide on and secure easily enough, so I'll try them out for a bit.

They are actually pretty low-profile. They are slimmer than Magpul XTM's for sure. They are about the same as Magpul XT's and Tango Downs, maybe a touch slimmer.

Compared to the Magpul XTs which one feels better and has better grippiness

How hard were they to put on? The TDs had me cussing up a storm.

I think these have better grippiness for sure.

They slid right on my rail, but I'm guessing different rails may have slightly different tolerances. YMMV. ;)

Thanks! The vest is a cheapy from Cheaper Than Dirt by ModGear. Only $50 and it serves my needs just fine (I'm not an operator after all, I just play one in the desert) ;)

Cool, I asked cause Id go the same route. UTG or something. Think they're pretty similar, if not from the same CHI-COM factory.

Yep, basically the same thing. Go for it!

Do they wobble? My Tango down, LMT wobble a bit. They look like Knights, do they attach the same? Do Knights wobble?

These don't wobble at all - that would be really annoying. They secure very tightly with their patented system. It is similar to Knights, but Knights are more spring-loaded, these are kind of clip-unclip.

Are they hard to install?

Thanks, I was going to get some if that was the case. When I say wobble I mean they have some movement, it bothers me enough to want to change them.
