Rod grips are predominately made of two different materials, High density brushed EVA and Cork.

Shapes and sizes vary according to the rod being built and both materials are easily modified, shaped and reamed out to suit your blank.

For more information please visit the Grips page.
Brushed EVA foam is used in the majority of fishing rod handles on rods for general fishing.

The foam comes in different densities, but the best handles are made of High Density EVA. This foam is easily reamed and shaped by sanding and is comfortable and warm to the touch. It is quite durable and comes in different colours.

Rod guides
guide collage ppad 600w(copy) Different rods require different types of guides from snake guides for Fly rods up to heavy duty roller guides for Game rods and everything in between.

Frames can be either Brass, Stainless steel or Titanium and the the inner ring can consist  of different materials for example, Titanium Oxide, Zirconian & Hialoy  to SIC Silicon Carbide, with or without shock rings.

For most types of fishing, the type of ring frame is more important than the centre ring material. One of the most common materials to use is Titanium Oxide as it is extremely hard but still easily affordable. Silicon Carbide is the top material to use on Heavy Boat & Game rods in a tip ring as it is extremely hard and typically comes in heavy frames to dissipate heat quickly.

The other option for heavy duty tip rings is the roller variety with either steel or ceramic rollers. For more information please visit  the Guides page.

Rod Wrapping Thread

Fishing rods can be bound or wrapped in many pleasing colour combinations.  Thread comes in different thicknesses and solid colours.

We also have verigated threads for use on older Fly rods to retain originality. If we cannot match the original thread we can always totally re-bind the rod in a period thread to suit.We also have mettalic threads that look superb as underbindings. They are decorative only and are not strong enough to be used as overbindings to fix the guides.
