Hopefully someday they sell the rubber band as an accessories, is it all the M47 type had same diameter outer body?
The grip is really strong with the rubber band, but I never found it hard to hold the grinder ever since the burrs were treated with the black treatment. On the previous version it was really hard with some beans.
As @Mbb mentioned, I also use the M47 thumb stop as a "knuckle stop". I grip the body with the thumb stop at the first joint of my index finger (the DIP joint). If the air happens to be really dry and my hands don't grip, I just wet my hand a bit and wipe it with a cloth, then have perfect grip.
I think one could email them and ask if they sell the grip separately.
@autoexec - sadly, they didn't say anything about a new burr. But they never teased new products too much, so who knows.
