Working on a UL spinning rod and this is my first time with EVA grips.  Got the turning and sanding down OK, but I'm going to glue a piece of matching EVA to the end of the rear grip to hide the end of the grip and the blank.  I can carefully sand it on a disk sander.  What glue do you guys use for such a build?  I have CA glue, Two Ton Epoxy, 5 minute epoxy, Duro aerosol spray adhesive.

This question and any suggestions for future grips are welcome.

You have to get the special EVA glue. Make sure you get the one that is designed and compatible with the EVA color you are working with

1.00 per mile, round trip, and that even includes installing it.

 

Best thing to use on that is contact cement. Apply 1 coat to each side, let dry, then apply a 2nd coat, let dry and assemble

Many thanks.  You could be an Uber driver and make a few shekels along the way.  There is the story in the family of one who got vershcnicken and was going to take a cab from Houston to Philly.

John ... My namesake is correct to a point ... use contact cement on EVA but make sure it is the DAP "Weldwood Contact Cement" with the red label.
