It really depends on how tough your hands are. I know a roofer who says I can't get the checkering on his M1911 sharp enough.
I think Glock made the Gen 4 stippling mild enough to satisfy most people. Some of the women don't like it. Some guys want it more aggressive. This Gen 4 was sent to me to texture (not stipple) because the guys hands sweat a lot. It's his work gun and it will be carried all over the world in different climates.

The whole purpose of a custom pistol is to make it fit and feel good in the users hand. That and to help him or her shoot it better.
