Username Just a quick tip to help you with finishing carbon.

If you havent found www.sollercomposites.com yet its a great source for carbon sleeves.

Also after applying epoxy wrap it with heat shrink tape. It will eliminate a lot of the surface texture that can be a pain to sand away.

koldkut Ever since I've started with the carbon, and even making grips that are no good, I want to get some slimmer Carbon and sleeve some jerks for night fishing. Would be cool looking if nothing else.

koldkut Seems they sell carbon fiber that's already been worked, not raw carbon sheeting or tubing.

Here's some more pictures.

koldkut 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.
