Anyone have any ideas how to finish off these grips? Not a fan of the small foam pieces that they include with the grips. Thinking of making some pieces out of cork. Thanks

I'm sure that would also work, I myself haven't had any problems, are you installing them as per the video?

The American Tackle aluminum winding checks and butt caps for the G2 handles fit perfectly.

Wasn’t aware of a video. I’ll check it out and will definitely look into the G2 components. Appreciate it.

If you're going to do something different, please leave them a note on your order, they are going to start pre-installing the foam arbor before shipping.
