Here's a pic of mine taken a while back with a full metal head. I have flown this one with both the metal and plastic grips. The metal ones are purdier.

Blade,

Are you just wanting to add some "bling" to yours? I had a set of Kasama grips on mine and didn't really notice any difference in flight. I have since put the plastic grips back on my 3D and have had zero problems with them.

Bling NO !! I know some guys fly with a 2k head speed with plastic grips for me I want to stay alive,, if the head speed goes up metal grips goes on just a little bit of common sence If the Kasama grips work I may try that.

Hey blade
You will have to cut down the stock Knight spindle to fit the Kasama grips. Ask me how I know
It flew great/ looks awsome with the kasama grips, but I was experiencing a wobble when doing 3D when the HS dropped. I even put in new bearings and changed out the dampners but it didn't fix anything. So I put back on the stock plastic grips and the wobble was no where to be seen I ran my Knight HS over 2050 and the stock grips held up good.

OK so forget about the Kasama grips,I'll go ahead and get the regular metal ones ( Compass ) Back in the days we use to think 1750 was high but that has changed, I just can't trust the plastic ones I even heard the plastic ones on the 600N have cracked Imagine if that blade should come flying towards you, one time a buddy of mine crashed and the blade flew right over my head imagine if it had get me in the face or where ever,, am flying now with the plastics ones but keeping the head speed down that's just me bro but thanks for the info.

Better Pics

So I was out flying a couple of my 3Ds today.

Took some closer shots of the metal grips and all metal head

carcrasher, thanks for noticing! "Cirano" my Airedale is the best dog ever (I might be a little biased)

I wondered about it myself aslo but 2050 headspeed on my 3D with plastic grips on it and at least 60 flights on it in less than 3 weeks no sign of any problem in flights nor on the ground. Pinoy..
