Lets hear your thoughts. smile.gif

Cigar with the tip fined down to it meets with the blank in a real slight bump. THe cork is really thin at the tip. BTY is that done while shaping the cork or would it be donw after the grip is installed and glued. The cork at the end is so fine I thought it may be easily broken.

If you could do a cross between the garison and the western that would be AWESOME! headbang.gif

Basically leave the front of the grip garison, and narrow down the back of the grirp like the western.

Let's stop this poll on Sunday, October 2nd at 9pm EST. I'll get another poll up at that time and will likely have some more of the build process up as well. thumbsup.gif

I voted Garrison style since the rod is going to be an 8 for a 5.
I like a little more meat to grab hold of on a rod that long and weight. I think it brings out a little more "oomph" out of a rod.
