Carbon Fiber Handles
Posted 25 September 2016 - 07:45 PM
Building a couple of Spinning rods with Carbon fiber split grips. I bought the Carbon fiber grips from Mudhole ( model CFR2,3).Has anyone used them, and did you epoxy them or leave them textured? What did you use?I think they would look better if epoxied, but am not sure I am up to the task, and not sure what to use. Pro Kote, Flex Coat, etc....

The desired finish is strictly up to the builders personal preference. Some will use Permagloss, some Lumiseal, while others will use the epoxy finish of their choice. Others may just opt to go with the textured finish. Entirely your decision

I think I will epoxy the ends, and winding checks and see how it looks. I think if I want to cover the grips I may want to do that before installing them on the rod. Looks like Lumiseal is the preferred product, any idea how many coats it would take to finish handles? They would look really good finished seems it may take many coats to get them smooth.
