    CORK HELP! Need a SMALL full wells grip!

    Hey Guys,


    My father's new T&T blank arrived the other day so I am the midst of building it. I have the real seat and titanium recoil guides, however I have been unsuccessful at finding a full wells grip SMALL enough for the 4 weight. Obviously the full wells for the bigger weight rods are a dime a dozen, however a full wells the size of the ones on the 3 4 and 5 weight SAGE ONE"s would be awesome. If anyone could direct me to where i can find said cork, that would be great, thanks!!!!!

    Tom,

    Yes I did thank you. Unfortunately, all the full wells grips shown on their site have a 1'' or 1 1/8 OD at mid length...Looking for 3/4''-ish

    Re: CORK HELP! Need a SMALL full wells grip!

    I like a thin grip on all my rods, what I do is put the but section in a rod spinner and take the grip down with a ribbon of sand paper wrapped around. You can get gust where you like it...Use fine sand paper, cork sands away much faster than wood...
