2020 DW Grips material.....

I bought a new 2020 DW V-Bob and the more I shoot and own it, the more I like it.
But I have a question from what material the handles are made off ? Feels very good in hand . What is it? Carbon fiber? Dymondwood ? Thank you.

Very similar to the grips on my TCP, which I love. Agree with QJI26, G10 is my bet

A little more info for the OP: G10 is a epoxy impregnated fiberglass......of sorts. In general, it is made by stacking several layers of glass sheets that have been soaked in epoxy resin.
