Default Re: Retro...Old cork to split grip...

Thanks man.

I used the original cork and put a coat of BSI 2 part epoxy across the cork and reel seat, then sanded it down smooth. But it left some imperfections so I had to do it a second time. Then I used some rattle can bed liner for the reel seat and handle, its actually really comfortable and not harsh like I thought it could be.

Ive been fishing a Compre for a couple weeks and so far I haven't noticed a crack between the reel seat and handle, but time will tell.
