Default Latest grip

Here's a shot of my latest grip incorporating birch bark.

Click the image to open in full size.

Approximately 40 slices of birch bark, ebony accents and some light weight wood of unknown origin for the ends. Thought they provided a nice contrast to the birch bark and ebony.

Critiques?

Like the end pieces. Looks good. Ebony accents set off contrast. Been thinking of ritz in wood for next build. Is your grip going on any particular rod ?
