'08 Dolomite grip/non grip question.

I have a black/lime green Dolomite shaft (was a one piece), and it feels grippy and has "soft grip" written on it. My question is, I thought the blue Dolo's were the grip models? Or am I missing something? Reason I ask is because I'm picking another one up but I want the grip, but not too much grip, model and the green one is listed as clear.

Clear is no grip. You don't want that.

Thanks cpt, that's what I figured. I just thought the colors meant grip/non grip and I have a green grip, so I'll just go with the blue listed as grip.

On an aside, what does Nipple grip feel like? How does it compare to Stick'Um?

It'd be unfair to say, since my Warrior was used/worn (found a OPS with a broken blade, unkown amount of use/wear) and I've only held a One95 Stick 'Um brand new. The Bauer seemed very grippy, more so than the Dolomite, but again, context is key.

Come to think of it my Dolo is soft grip, not nipple grip.

With Gloves on pretty much the same, maybe a bit less "sticky"
