Me too. These "Do I need or want XXX" or "Which XXXX should I buy" threads are rather pointless. The characteristics of a product are usually well documented so it should be apparent to you whether you need it or not. If you don't know then you don't need it.
Yeah! Sometimes, in 1% of the cases, I understand.
Every once in a while you get someone with a clear idea of what they want the equipment for and they give us enough info on their shooting styles, personalities, needs, etc that we can help them make a decision.
When I was going to sell my 30Ds, I didn't know whether I should get a 5Dc, a, a 1D2, a 1Ds2 or a 1D3...I made a thread, detailing the kind of photography I do, the kind I don't do, and my needs and wants out of a camera. A lot of people chimed in, and I appreciated their help.
But the vast majority of these threads (like this one) give absolutely zero information as to what kind of a photographer we're dealing with and why they're looking to buy new equipment.
Additionally, grips in many senses are like bags, a matter of taste...some like slingshots, others backpack, yet others prefer the shoulder bags. The only way to know if you want a grip or not is to try one and see if you like it.
