I'm not sure this is the next big thing in rod building, but it's sure neat for a hobby builder to be able to throw down at factory rod weights and beat the snot out of them. The killer is the price that is demanded for these type of grips, any of the places that makes these charges an easy $40 or more for them, and I can see why, it's time consuming. I have $2.50 in the foam core, $2.50 into the carbon, and I've used likely $5 in resin, this doesn't account for sanding/shaping supplies, or epoxy cups, brushes, and stir sticks x3.

This set of grips is going to be given away to an old high school buddy who doesn't know the rod is even coming.
