NFC CF butt cap options

Have a 14” nfc carbon fibre grip shipping. Was going to pick up a butt cap and maybe trim ring from mud hole but not quite sure the size I should get. Anyone have some experience with them? Do they have similar dimensions to the CFX brand or another brand I can interchange the parts?

Thanks!

I have not used the 14” NFC CF grip, but of the NFC CF grips I have used the dimensions are almost identical to those of the CFX grips. So you should have no problems using the same butt caps you used on the CFX grips.

They are 27 mm like a casting cork grip if this helps, both ends. You will have to figure out an arbor though if the option you want isn't one also, the EVA butt cap on the NFC grip is also the arbor, you could always cut the tenon off and use it as an arbor if the new butt cap needs one.

Thanks Norman and Spencer
Sounds like i'll probably be ok or can make it work with some slight modifications.
