Thread: recent grips

  1. Default recent grips

    I have not posted anything in quite awhile, but due to recent back surgery, I find I have some time on my hands to do so. Here are some grips that went out to other builders or used on some of my own using carbon fiber or with cf hybrids and either wood or cork accents.

    Cf hybrid with burl cork ends..My grips ..Steve Kalb Shoo fly fishing Troy, Mt builder

    Carbon fiber ends with natural cork, birch bark and black trim

    Carbon fiber zebra wood ends

    not best pic but..1. straight Cf and burl ends 2. Brown cf hybid and burl ends 3 straight carbon fiber with natural cork(no finish). I get my cork from Matt best deal around

    New style. This uses cf with non dyed fiberglass hybrid sleeve. I can paint the core(in this case gold) and when the epoxy is applied that color shows through where the undyed fiberglass becomes clear. Opens up a lot of possibilities. The ends are rubberized cork.

    This shows the same cf and natural cork as before but with matching fighting butt and following pic of butt cap and end plug.

    Thanks for looking

    Really nice stuff. It is nice to see alternatives to cork that compliment the high-tech rods out there today!

    WOW! That is some of the most unique work I've ever seen. A whole new take on rod building.
