Spey rod grip profile diagrams

Hello all, new member here with my first post. I've been lurking a while, and have already learned a lot as I go down the rabbit hole of rod building.

I'm building my first two-hander, a 12' 6 weight. I'll be gluing cork rings on the blank, and sanding them on a hobby lathe. I've done a re-grip of a single hander this way and it came out pretty good.

I have several spey rods from which I can come up with a couple of sketches for different grip styles, but I'm wondering if there's anything for 2-handers that's similar to the Flex-Coat "Display of Fly Rod Handles," which I found very useful.

Thanks. I figured there must be something out there, I just couldn't find it.
