    nice grips
    do you mold your own foam cores or turn down some standard core to make your shapes?

    I have just started pouring my own cores. I sarted out using 1.5" cores from Riley Rods.

    They look interesting. How do they feel when fishing and they get wet? Do they get slick?

    I put one of Dicks grips on a fiberglass rod and I was really suprised on how much grip it had, not slick at all.

    I have yet to have any complaints about grips being slick when wet. They actually seem to get grippier as they get wet.
