Default Polymer grips like combats for large hands?

Just picked up a nice 4" 686 No Dash with Hogues... The grips are too small and narrow for my hands. I like the S&W Combats, but plan on using this one to carry (hopefully, sooner than later here in WI) and as a user, so putting some expensive wood on it isn't part of my plan. I'd like to find some polymer (rubber, plastic, whatever - just not $$$ wood) grips for it that fit my XXL hands. Any suggestions?

The Hogue hard nylon grips are good for me, not sticky like rubber but gives you a very secure grip. Im told they still make them.

Pachmayr Presentation grips are about the biggest I've seen.

Default Mustang or Jay Scott

If you're not adverse to reasonably priced wood, you might consider Mustang or Jay Scott. They look similar and cover both the front and rear grip frames for a "handful" feel. Used ones are generally available at about the same price as new rubber grips. Check Ebay or post a WTB here and you should be able to find a set at an attractive price.

Here's a set of Jay Scott grips on an N-frame, which is only slightly larger than your L-frame.
