i like the rubber “boot grip” style on the J frame, but I shoot regular 38s and carry +P. The smallest I go for 357 is a Ruger SP101.
That said, I’d recommend taking a look at Pachmayr grips. They have a few options that cover the backstrap with a nice layer of rubber. They aren’t made as well today as the old ones, but they are affordable (so no biggie if you end up not liking one option) And are less bulky than the Hogue options, which I don’t care for.
CT makes a nice grip, but pricey. Get the bigger one. Plus, I’m not sold on lasers, I end up “looking” for the dot in the daytime and this slows me down unless I really focus. I ended up painting the front blade instead.
