Thread: fun with carbon fiber grips

  1. 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.



    3. Mybrid green/silver



    4.Carbon fiber ends with burlcork and birch/walnut elliptical



    5. Carbon fibers with burl cork ends

    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.
    Today is always the first day of the rest of your life.
    Use it wisely.
