Some time ago Avant stated that metal tail grips would be released for the Aurora.

09-10-2009
Yes we will be making metal tail grips as an upgrade after the release of the e-Aurora.
We didn't repeat the old ones used in the prototypes because the old metal ones don't have the better geometry of the plastic ones. The new metal ones will incorporate the latest tail blade angle geometry that we used in the plastic ones.

Does anyone know if Avant still intend to release metal grips?
The plastic ones do work, but they leave a lot to be desired and are quite an eye sore on what is otherwise a well designed and beautiful machine.

well they mentioned it 2 years ago so maybe they will be released sometime in the next 2......
honestly but really doubt these will ever come out as plastic tail grips do have a place and as proven by almost every 90 going that they do work very well with little issue (except align as there ones suck)
the aurora TR grips never gave me or anyone else i know any hassles and i didnt think they looked that bad

I am looking forward to seeing the metal tail grips released as well. I know a few aftermarket companies have developed prototype metal Aurora tail grips, but I'm sure whatever Avant finally comes up with will be even better.

Yes I agree with GraZer, but again where are the metal grips?
