rodmaker magazine eva grips advice

Been building for couple years now and love learning new ideas to implement on my rods. I build primarily bass and light freshwater fishing rods.
I want to order some rodmaker magazines back issues with focus on eva grip designs / inlays, maybe other grip ideas though i don't have access to a dedicated lathe yet.

Would the Special CD edition on grips (https://www.rodmakermagazine.com/product/special-edition-5-crafting-cork-composite-eva-wood-grips-cd/) be good for me? Or are their newer magazine publications i could backorder that would have more up to date advice/tips?

Hello Darwin.

I have almost all the magazines (RodMaker) printed plus all 5 SE's and the two Magazine on CD- CD's.

If you don't plan on getting all the back issues the SE-5 is pretty comprehensive.

But... there are new things coming up all the time, I think you should get the SE-5, also get a subscription to RM.



Tight Wraps & Tighter Lines.

Bob,

Thanks Bob. Unfortunately I can’t get a direct subscription delivery to Canada. So my plan is to order some back issues in batches to an American resshipper.

Do you know what volumes the CD-5 covers? Like if I also ordered back issues volume 10 would that already be on the CD?

Darwin
I wrote a couple of articles in Rodmaker magazine that might be of interest to you. The first one is volume 21 issue 5 on how to use a pie shaped cork cutting jig to give you a barber pole effect. There is also an article on how to make an eva cutting jig. The second article is in volume 22, issue 6 - modifying and using a diamond jig for cork and eva. I hope that this will help you.
