Carbon Fiber Grip Colors?

Wonder if there is a source of carbon fiber grips in orange and black. I don't make enough rods to try and learn how to make them and invest in the needed tools and supplies. Would be for a spinning rod med light split grip. Aprox 4 inch rear grip 1.5 inch fore grip and 1.5 butt. I like the forecast designs and will go with their black grips if need be. But would sure like to find something similar in black and orange.

Most carbon skins are supplied in natural charcoal color. The material is not easily dyed/colored in the same fashion as glass can be. To get orange and black, you'll most likely have to paint it.

Black is the natural color of a carbon fiber grip when finished. I have made a orange grip (Boise State color) by using the orange fiberglass sleeves.

it's glass not carbon, but that might not make any difference for the intended purpose.

You could marble it the old fashion way, or use the Magic Marble Swirl pigment from Mudhole, faster and easier, but not as much control in the finished product. You would just dip your graphite grips in a bucket of the Magic Marble pigment and water.

Hi Michael

I think these are the ones you referred to - but just in case:
[www.mudhole.com]

Offered in
Blue / Black
Lime Green // Black
Pink / Black
Red / Black
But no orange / black like you said.

The only other Orange with Black solution I can think of (this is Gregg BTW - howdy!) is to consider Winn:

Those are the colored carbon fiber grips I was referring to.

I have handled rods with the Winn Grips. I just don't care much for the feel.
