The grips are very cool new modern look. Super light and make the rod even more sensitive then before. Definitely a must have in the custom rod builders arsenal. Use it with the new CCT100% carbon reel seats from American Tackle and you have the most advanced rod on the market.

These grips are my new favorites! I recently completed 2 builds with them. 1 spinning and 1 casting and have plans for another using these grips soon. They are very sensitive, feel great in your hand and look awesome! I highly recommend they to any builders out there.

I built two casting rods with carbon grips, back to back. One was woven and one was a G2. The G2 was a little easier and faster build. The butt caps for the G2’s are much nicer, too. I had to turn and trim the tenon on the woven grip to fit a nice cap. I haven’t gotten use to the G2 feel, though. I’m just use to having a little more texture and cushion. That gives a more secure feel to me when casting heavy lures a distance. It’s personal taste. I don’t see this being any kind of an issue on a spinning rod, though. The hold when casting a spinning rod is on the real seat, with the reel leg serving as a heck of a safety hold. I can only see advantages to the design on a spinning rod.
