It sounds like a silly question, but is there such a thing?

They look a lot like the real Ergon grips!

Would those grips on the end be of use to anyone? I would get no benefit from those. The ones on the tops make more sense, creating a flatter area. Those imitate what I have achieved through building up of insulation tape and gel pads under my cushioned tape.

Top grips look a good idea, bar ends less so.
I fitted foam padding to the tops of my drop bars.

I used to have Grab-Ons on my old Tourer - and have just found them on sale at SJS! They had disappeared off the market for a time, and the foam grips I bought were really not up to the job! So I'll get a set of these when my current tape gives up the ghost - or maybe for next year anyway. Thanks all for your replies.
