In the event of a backorder you will be notified.

The half wells cork grip is a standard for many fly rod builds that range from a 2-weight up to a 6-weight. This handle kit is ideal for most of your freshwater applications where lighter rods and light tippets are used. Those anglers looking to chase trout, panfish or have the classic half wells cork look and fell, this is the handle choice to best suit your needs. The half wells cork can be reamed to fit any fly applications and mates up to the all aluminum AFS7 fly seat without a cutout. Each one of these reel seats have finish caps and do not have fighting butts as many of the freshwater rods do not need a fighting butt.

Installation & How-To

Note: Handle kits do not include arbors. You can purchase one separately, or build one yourself using tape. Also, as blank diameters change, you may need to ream the inner diameter of the grips to match the blank. In instances where the blank diameter is small, you might need to create an arbor to fit the grip snug to the blank.
