    A lot of us are members already so I appreciate the heads up. Forwarded it on to a friend who is looking for a rod. They say the Diamond series is designed for females and mention the grip being thinner, not sure how much impact that has. I find most factory rods have very thin grips to begin with.

    Hmmm, maybe I should look into one for my wife so she'll lay off of my gear.

    Itch, I know that the vexsis clearance has been around, however I only knew of that site because someone here directed me to it, just trying to pay it forward for those that may not be in the know.

    And just so no one gets the wrong idea, there is no way for me to get the $25 by sharing that link here, you have to email it to people whose addresses you know or use a personal invite link, which this is definitely not

    I thought more about what you said, and I recently sold a custom SP (I had two, and kept the one with the smaller grip) which had a larger-than-I-was-used-to grip...

    My question (and I may need to start a new thread for this one) is this... Do custom rod builders for the most part think that factory grips are too thin? Do they generally make theirs thicker? Did I not like the grip on the rod because I am conditioned to favor a certain grip?

    I've found I prefer slightly thicker grips than I've seen on commercial rods. I've made some grips that were too thick but think I've settled on a size I tend to like.

    FYI, the Vexsis reels are a lot cheaper at MRFC.

    If you make one too thick do you just take layers off until you're happy with it? Reason I ask is that I am curious to try building one next winter...

    I did, but it was pain. To get it smooth I couldn't hand sand it. I just use a drill to turn down grips. So I got the butt cap off the reel seat and used a dowel to connect the rod blank to my drill to turn it. Prefer to get it right before gluing it to the blank.
