No choice to make in my opinion. The checkered redwood, hands down winner. All of my CZ's (6) except my CZ82 sport Marschal's Grips.

Depends on what you're looking for in a grip.
Of the ones you mentioned, my preference would be for the Marschal checkered wood grips.
For me, a grip's main function is to provide a positive, effective, and if possible enhanced, grip on a gun. To that end, I've generally found the deeply-checkered hardwood grips to be of the most benefit. Looks can be had through selection of material, but there are only just so many ways to get a grip to be grippy ... either via checkering or whatever.
With the CZ P-01, I've had several sets of ebony 18 LPI checkered grips made by Sam at Omega Grips. Love them. I feel they provide twice the grip of the factory rubberized ones from CZ, nearly as good as a perfectly-checkered steel 1911 pistol.

if we're talking aesthetics, then i prefer the wood grips. if we're talking function, then whichever one enables you to shoot the gun better (faster, more accurately).
no extra points for me: i own no CZ's. i love the 75's, especially the compact like yours, but my with smallish hands, i have too much difficulty manipulating the DA trigger and the safety. :-(

One of the advantages of the aluminum grips is that they're thinner, which makes reaching the safety and the mag release a bit easier.

I guess I get points for owning a CZ-75B.

I'd go with the thin grips. First of all, the red walnut brings a third color into the equation, making your gun look too busy. If your gun was NOT a duo tone I WOULD go with the red grips. IMO, the matching color on the thin grips gives your gun a look of simplicity.
I hope to be getting some rosewood grips for my alloy Rami 9. I've had a Compact 75, too, and man was it a sweet shooting utinsel!

Ya I'd say which ever one's you prefer while shooting. I think the rosewood adds a little much too, but thats just cosmetics. That duo tone is one sexy compact though.
I really like the stock rubber grips on m P-01, but if I carried it I would have to change them. My thumb would always get caught up on the rubber while trying to grip the pistol while drawing.
I just hit about 1000 rnds on mine too, its just gets better and better, LOVE THAT GUN. And shooting hundreds of rounds with the kadet kit is the most fun I can have with my clothes on :)
The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

I took delivery of a dual tone 75 C a couple of weeks ago. Great pistol, and a nice complement to my satin nickel CZ 83.
For now, I'm keeping the stock black plastic grips, but adding the rubber magazine base pads, which give my pinky a tad better purchase. If I choose to dress her up, I'll likely opt for a black or black-stained wood -- if I can't find someone to make me black or gray sharkskin-covered grips.
