Replacing grips: Colt Python

I have a 1967 Python. I love shooting it but being so used to shooting my Semiauto, the flared buttstock feels awkward. I would like to have a taper at the end.

Without compromising its handling, what grips do you recommend? I'm open to wood grips mainly, though I have no experience with a Hogue/Pachmayr on a bigger gun.

Here is a pic of my Python with Hogue Coco Bolo smooth grips with the contrasting stripe and butt piece...

Funny thing about Hogue custom wood and Pythons...Hogue wants the owner to ship the pistol to them so that the grips can be fitted properly. It seems that all Python grip frames are not the same in thickness and size and the wood is hand fitted by their craftsmen. I sent mine and later a friend's and they both came back perfect within a few weeks.

As you can see...I have Hogue custom wood on several Colts but the Python was the only one that required custom fitting.
