I like the look of the VZ Grips that came on my Dan Wesson Valor, but they are a little too thin for me.
My Les Baer UTC has thin grips and they are okay.
Both pistols have cut checkering on the front strap, but the DW is more aggressive.
I guess I can tolerate thin grips if the checkering on the front strap is moderate.
As a reference, a Generation 2 (no finger groves) Glock 19/23 is just about perfect.
A Kahr P9 feels too thin.
I put Hogue (does not cover front strap) grips on the DW.
Yes, I had to replace bushings & screws.
No, they do not look anywhere near as good as the VZ.
However, they are thicker and that was the objective.
