Has anyone seen a Winn grip for the Fuji VSS or TVS hood? Thanks!

I buy the Fuji VSS seat without a hood and also buy the SK2 or TVS hidden thread hood for it, rather than using the KDPS hidden thread hood. The Winn thread cover sleeve fits both of these hoods but requires that the the VSS seat to be trimmed back a little on the threaded barrel. Fuji is the only company that has Winn grips that fit the VSS seat and the SK2 and TVS hidden thread hoods. I find the VSS grip more comfortable than the TVS grip and I like it down locking. This VSS seat Winn grip combo in size 17 is my favorite spinning rod handle.

I am in the process of wrapping a spinning rod with the exact set up Norm describes above. I am pretty sure I read Norms description of a Point Blank build and am using his idea. Thanks Norm!

You are welcome, and thank you! You will really like the Point Blank with that handle setup.
