Thanks to Mike at Riley Rods for the inspiration on this handle.


This is my new HM jigworm rod with Fuji Titanium SICs and a little glitter for the customers that think all my rods are UGLY!

What, no matching glitter on the guide wrap? Smile Just kidding...the whole thing looks great.

No need - the wraps are Gudebrod Electra Black. Built in glitter! Here's the best picture I have of one [ link ]


Thanks!

Hi Chuck,
Very nice job.
How did you go shaping the foam to fit in the aero seat?
Regards Col

Col - I turn the grips on my lathe. After I get the grip concentric I just use sand paper. I copied a grip that Mike (Riley Rods) posted a while back. Just eyeball it and sand away.


I undersize to allow for carbon skin and finish. The grip is tapered, and if the end of the taper measures about .98" it plugs right into the Aero seat. I just posted a picture of a rear grip.
