    Sunline lock-ons hands down. I've had oury lock-ons and I'm not a big fan of their (ODI)clamping system. They can develop play and one of mine could be twisted on the bar even with the clamp fully tightened.

    Second that. New Sunline Half-Waffles are sweet. But then again, a grips a grip...when it comes to a lock-on that is...

    I've been rocking the same set of Rogues for almost 3 years now. I love those big fat pillowy lugs.

    Yep. ODI Rogues for me. I just put a set of Ruffians on my "wife's" bike, it's hard to beat the price and performance of the ODI lock-ons.

    I love my Rogues. Only thing that would make them better is somehow make them not develop play in like a week....

    You could superglue the clamps to the grip... or you could wrap the tabs on the ends in a little bit of tape... or something like that. The little bit of play doesn't bother me. I also have some NYC Freeride bar ends that seem to have eliminated the play.

    I was a Rogue lock-on fan forever until I tried these: Pedros diamond-vice lock-ons. They aren't as bulky as Rogues, but are just as soft. (Dont last as long though...)

    I run sun line THICKS
    Big and meaty.
    Also EXCELENT virbration and arm pump reducers. I have to say. Almost as good as my ESI foam grips. (they shred to fast...)

    Good choice with the Sunline, you'll love them. The clamp is much better than the ODI style and they won't develop play. As for the Pedro's diamond vice and dice vice, they have the same clamp as the Sunlines without the integrated bar ends. I had the dice vice and loved them but they do wear quickly and I prefer a thicker grip.

    ODI Rogues, or Ruffians if you have smaller hands or just prefer a smaller grip.
    Too tired and sore to ride...so...who wants to go riding?

    OURY's feel great but they dont seem to last as long as Ruffians or Rogues. Mine are peeling really bad. But I guess thats why the sell replacement grips.

    I tried the Pedros as well, but it's a sh*tty lock-on design.
    Now i'm with DaBomb and it's just great...
