Default fun with carbon fiber grips

Have not posted much in awhile. I ahve been very busy between the "real" job,grandkids, rodbuilding and handle making. Here are som pics of a few different things going on.
1. the top and bottom ones called mybrids, I can paint the foam core underneath and have that show through to the handle. I can match guide wraps, reel seat colors, team colors etc. The middle one is a CFR handle with burl/cork ends and pink hybrid sleeving and on of Ron's (Goduster) Lemke special order pink seats.

2.This is the Mybrid again in red and black with a red/black/acrylic seat.

Interesting stuff. Not sure if it is to my taste yet it's a clever idea I never considered.....Do the grips end up slippery?

I've built three with CF grips. Here's two of them:

I've used them in pouring rain. They didn't get slippery.
