    Default Favorite Grip

    What is your favorite grip. Full wells, Half Wells, Western. Which one. I know a lot depends on the application, but regardless of that, what is your favorite. I've always like Fenwick's Reverse Half Wells, but my all time favorite is the Cigar grip.

    I agree, the cigar grip for a trout rod.

    I have always been partial to the cigar grip on light rods. Bamboo rods feel better to me with full Wells grips however.

    I forgot to mention that some of the custom grips with integrated composite or wood components are very attractive, but I still prefer just plain cork.

    I don't care...I just pick em up and fish with them...if I were building a rod, I'd have to research to figure it out. It's a little embarrassing, but true.

    Good topic Joe,
    I need to Get a Grip.

    Give me a Large diameter Western on everything from 4 to 7, 8 and up a Full Wells and not one of those slim waistline ones either. Can't stand these snaky little grips on many modern rods...... I wear a size 12 EEE. My fingers can go around most of today’s rod grips, twice! Where's the Meat!

    This is one reason I don’t buy T.F.O.’s - Lefty with his little chubby hands and fingers designed ‘em. Put the two of us side by side and you’d have a hard time believing we’re the same species. Give me a Steve Rajeff rod, those come in Mens sizes.

    An attempt at instituting a little levity into a pet peeve of mine…

    TT
