    I apologize if this topic has been addressed before but I rarely keep up on the rod building forum. I keep hearing that the cork used in rod handles is getting more rare and more expensive. I see that composite handles are becoming much more popular with gear rods. Is anybody using this stuff of fly rods and will it become more popular in the future?
