My next build will feature an adjustable full length G2 handle ;-)

Just out of curiosity, which reel seat is used in the Tsuka grip images that have been floating around since ICAST? It's a great looking seat.

It is the new HCC seat which will also be available at a later date.

I have been using the full handles. The carbon material is so light that I don’t need to split the grip to save any weight.

I like full handles too as rods are often in rod holders.

I prefer full handles but only by a small margin.
