45* grip frame or 86

Hello mcb'ers,

I am planning on buying a CCM s6.5 this summer, and I am torn on which grip I should get. I like the feel of my phantoms 45 grip, but I wanna test out the 86 frame for a tighter playing style. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who owns an 86 frame.

So the main point is this: what do you guys like or dislike about the 86? Is it uncomfortable? Would you prefer it over the 45? Any opinions would help me greatly! I know many of you will say "personal preference" but I actually want to know the concensus, considering I don't have anything to work off of.

Much appreciated!

one of my cockers has an 86* frame on it and i like it. the frame is thin and feels good in my hands. its also light in weight

another one of my cockers has a 45* benchy slider. its not as thin as the ccm ones but i can only imagine that its the same feel with a bit of twist on the wrist.

Thumbs up

86* frame with Hogue grips. On my S6.5, BM & SS-25.
Although it all comes down to personal preference.

Do you know anybody how has them? Best to try them out if possible.

That being said I like the 45, but the bottom of the frame seems a little to long for me. I use and prefer the 86. it feels better on my wrists and with the Hogue grips it's the perfect thickness for me.

Concensus seems to be 86 frame, thank you all! Now I know it's worth trying
