G2 split grips and Aero CCT seat

Finally got around to putting this all together and very impressed with the fit and ease. The G2 seats were very easy to fit and put together, easy excess cleanup and look great. I do think I will use the 3k finish going forward but the Bushido finish looks good too! The Aero CCT seat is the icing! It fit perfect and looks very cool in the light or in the sun.

I’ve been using other carbon grips and they’ll have their place but these made for a great 6-10 lb build.
Looking forward to building myself one!

I built one with a full length handle in bushido matte and it's stunning.

Those G2H handles are so easy install. It saves some time when there is no need to ream out a ton of EVA or cork. The cleanup is much easier as well. I didn’t even use tape like my messy self usually would. I had so much fun with the last one that I am already considering utilizing the split grip version on an upcoming spinning rod.

Best combo on the market! I am glad that they come with an arbore already installed. I have built several split and one full length on the G2 grips. I also love the fact that there smooth, rough grips give me callouses after casting all day, plus they end up having more grip when wet.

I love the G2 handle assemblies! I have build several full length and split grip rods, both spi9nning and casting,usually with the CCT/3K seats. I used one recently on a rod donated for a non-profit @#$%& and they love it!
