Default tangodown grips vs hogue grips?

i wanted a hogue grip for the longest time because it looks so cool and ergonomic. but once I put it on it felt like the top part of the grip was way too thin.. now I'm thinking of getting the tangodown grips but wanted to see some pics and reviews on them, and where to get them for the best price

Really? The hogue grip felt quite comfortible for me. I'm guessing you've never held an Ergo grip? Those, IMO, felt very thin for my taste. If Ergo grips were a bit thicker, that'd be my grip of choice. Right now I'm doing fine with a MIAD grip.

I have both and I really like the Hogue. I have Tango Downs on my LMT and the pink Hello Kitty rifle. I have the Hogue on a .50 Beowulf and my hunting guns and have had no problems.

I say go Hogue.

if you want a thicker grip, try a magpul miad grip. it comes with different sized straps so you can configure the grip to match your hand.

Grips are cheap enough, buy them all, try them all.... then figure out which one you like most...

Grips are like runner shoes, very personal thing, something that feels good for one person, someone else may absolutely hate.

My personal favourite is the Tango Down grip. I have probably each and every grip that is out there at one point of time, and at the end, I still went back to the TD grip.

I have TangoDown, Magpul MOE, and Magpul MIAD grips on my ARs. I like them all - I guess I'm just one of those people that never really felt that any of them were uncomfortable in my hand. Currently, I like the look of the MOE with the Magpul enhanced trigger guard. The TangoDown has a nice, rattle-free rubber plug in the bottom while the plastic plug on the MOE has a bit of rattle in it. After inserting batteries, I just stuff it with a couple foam peanuts to take the rattle out.

I have been running Tangodown for along time, it just works for me the best...It was sort of a natural transition from the good ole Duckbill grip to the Tangodown. Tangodown is about the same exact size as the A1 grip with a slightly more HK grip angle and more palm contour.

the Magpul feels like a 2x4 in my hands, and the ergo is okay but Tangodown beat the Ergo with the water resistant battery storage and also a gapper build in.

I replaced my Ergo with a MOE shortly after installing it. The MOE feels great to me.

Just picked up my N4 Recce today, and it came with the TD. I took it right off, it was just to skinny in my hand (just like the Hogue). I installed one of my Tapco SAW grips, and i'm a happy camper. A couple of magazines have done the whole grip review thing, and one of them chose the feel of the SAW hands down over the Magpuls, TD's, and Ergo.
