Best grip frame for phantom?
So I just got a duckslide, and I have both the M-16 grip, and .45 grips for it. However, I strongly dislike the M-16 grip on a pistol-like gun, but the .45 frame is just too dang small for my hands (and I have small hands!). Aside from adding some kind of beefier grips (I have both hogue and pachmayr wraparounds, and that is still too small), what other frames would you guys recommend?
I am currently looking at the CCM 86* frame, and the Sergison Humpback frame, and the MW Hump add-on (http://www1.freewebs.com/thehump/). I don't think I can get a Pachmayr vindicator grip frame as they are out of stock now...however, I am also thinking about getting the RTR SLIDER frame (yay!!!!) for the Gargoyle, as RTR told me that they will be compatible with phantoms
To those who have used one (or hopefully all 4 of these), which do you prefer, is there one clear cut winner over the other?
Also, while I usually go for function over form, I would still like the Frame to fit in with the look of the gun. So far, the .45 and 86* frames look the best on the duckslide to me, but yea, I'd love to hear your guys thoughts and comments on these.

I have not used the humpback frame or the vindicator, but I found the CCM 86 frame to be even smaller than the 45 frame. Since you already have a 45 frame you might want to look into the hump add-on.

HI = A Pumper's Paradise
I have a 45 humpback and have found it to be a bit large w/ wrap-around grips. W/ panels still big, not too bad, but I don't have large hands. 86 frames are a little smaller, i have held one but do not own one. Peace.

The CCM 86* frames with the wraparound grips seem to be the best to me in terms of thickness yet comfort. I have owned I on the Sergi Humpback frames and liked it quite a bit. I added the Pierce under the grip panel finger grooves and nice checkered wood panels over the top of them. Of course I still have settled for a set of standard CCM panels set into the 86* frame as my favorite. It is all about what you "feel" as being the best for you

The frame is CCI part #9300 and the .45 block or grip is part #3045.
As far as I know the Benchmark .45 block is no longer made. They are larger than the CCI block and will probably run $35 - $45 if you can find one.
As others have already stated, the CCM 86* frame is quite small. Noticeably thinner.
I haven't tried the one linked below but for the price...

I like my ccm 86 frame . I have big hands but it jus feels perfect for me . Its a smaller feel cuz of the panel grips that comes with it , but to me its the best feel for sure .
