well I got the new FLY ROD GRIPS in today couple of things I notes t #1 was a little more costly than the other grips , # 2 the fit of the fiber on the foam grip was a lot tighter,
# 3 the ends of grips were finished off a lot better , # 4 the foam in the grip was a lot tighter , not so crumblly [course ] # 5 the out side of the foam grips were smoother
did not have waves in it , if you only order one grip the at a time , the cost is about the same , the Baston grips were inlettered for recessed reel seats ,
as the on sale were not ,

I ordered 2 grips at a time in all cases , got 6 from a suppler that has them on sale, an 2 out of Batson , my feeling is that the Baston GRIP is a better GRIP bar none
I only looked into the grips on sale & an Baston . not any other grips , good luck
