I use the one that came on it and haven't tried any of the others. However, if i actually shot better with either of the other two then I would be downright shocked and impressed and then I would stick with the better backstrap haha. I may have to just experiment next time at the range.

I run the 1. The others don't fit my hand as well.

Large hands but I have the XDm 4.5 in .45 ACP. After shooting with all 3 backstraps I've settled in with the #2 medium. Love my XDm.

My wife has small hands but finds that the #3 works best. It eliminated the gap she was having between her hand and the tang. Helped her to obtain a high tang grip.

I've been practicing single hand shooting and found I do better with #1

my XDm 45 came installed with the "small" grip.....i have average sized hands and it felt a little too-small for me...

i switched it out for the "medium" grip which gives it more of a "hump" in the back of my hand...

PERFECT

I'm using #2. I haven't even tried either of the others because it feels so great. Also because I bought 2 extra 16 round magazines with the #2 extension so I figure I might as well just stick with it.

On my Xdm's the #2 . But, on my S&W M&P the large,on my 1911 I like the flat not the arched...strange, huh? Do what works the best. I spend lots of time getting it just right. I am right handed, but have a left dominant eye, that seems to change it up a bit.

I'm running the #1 strip. Made a night and day difference in feel at the range when I switched.

I use the number 2 backstrap. I think it suits my hands the best, helps me get a good high grip on the gun, and my groups are best with it. AFTER choosing number 2, then I ordered extra extended mags with the x-tension in #2 to macth installed.
