I guess "odd" is in the eye of the beholder.
I know some stipple jobs do look pretty crappy too. Ugly or not, its the function part that is the important part, and looks are really not all that important.
Unless of course, youre a shallow person.
If you take your time, and have a little patience, you can do a pretty good job that doesnt look like crap, and while it doesnt look like a RTF2, you actually end up with a grip that works better.
Function of the stippled grips is something you cant imagine until you actually shoot one. Ive tried most of the other "fixes" with my Glocks, and havent looked back since I stippled my first. Ive done seven now, and will do any others I pick up.
