Default Foam Grips

Thought I'd post a link to this, as I know some will be interested. Nice write up on doing custom foam grips by GBT on the New England Kayak Fishing site.

Making a foam grip.

Exactly the opposite of what I do. I strip off the crappy foam grips and replace em with cork tape or X Flock.

I will also be replacing the foam with cork tape when I re do my surf rods this winter.
I didnt like the foam slippery and too fat for my hands.
