Default Re: Is it possible to redo handle?

Thanks Frank. I didn't know the boiling water would loosen the epoxy. I thought all the hardware would have to be cut or ground off. I like how you slid the grip from the butt end.

I just got done reaming out a cork grip today for my first fly rod build. I used 1/2" masking tape to make a bushing at each end to keep the reel seat centered. I was thinking about using 1/4" tape to put one more bushing between the two I made with the 1/2" tape. Do you think that is needed or necessary? or can I just fill the space between the two bushings with epoxy.
