Pics of my backstrap mod

I like the side to side fit of the large backstrap but not the front to back length on my full size 9. I decided to modify it. I'm getting pretty close to what I want. Here are some pics.

I usually cut off the top portion of the large back straps, looks like you did the same

I used a razor knife to cut off the top & bottom lips, then I used a dremel w/sanding drum to get rid of what was left of the top hump. After that, I used strips of 100 grit to blend everything in by hand and to reduce the depth.

Thanks for the compliments, To be honest though I'm not sure that backstrap is the one I'm going to settle on. I am still working thru grip issues.
