    I don't think you need to darken them. They match the orange in the string the way they are now. Looks nice.

    They look good but for the looks of the camo I would darken them.

    IChim2 did you stain them already? I like a natural color in a wood grip but that's just me...:noidea:

    I think they look great but I think they would look even better darker to go with the Camo.

    Thanks JC.I put i coat of lite walnut stain on them and was trying to decide if it needed another.My hands got cold this season because the orig/grips that came on it are really small.

    I put a light coat of light walnut stain on them more less as a sealer....but can be easly sanded off.....that oak really takes stain good.

    Looks great
    If u want darker try Early amarican stain and then clear-coat
    try that on a blank piece and see what u think.
    I use to build oak beams in houses and this stain rocks to but on white oak
    Never tried it on red.
    Great lookin grips:rockon:
