    Default Replacing cork handle for cork mix

    Can anyone give me a rough idea how much it would cost to replace a cork handle for a cork mix handle the same as the ones you get on Loop rods (AEG, Xact etc), also does anyone know where I could get this done.

    Thanks Craig

    Try Steve Parkes on here for any custom work.

    I like the composite cork, but I prefer high quality standard cork on rods. Hard to come by these days though.

    Thanks Ryan, for me it's more practicality, as you may know from some of my posts I only have one arm so after I cast I clip the rod into a rod holder on my artificial arm, well as you can imagine corks not the best material for this so I have to cover it with heavy duty shrink tube and seal the ends with tape and although this protects the cork it makes the handle rather bulky, I have Loop AEG and the cork mix handle is perfect for me so I'm thinking of replacing the cork on 1 or 2 of my other rods (depending on price )

    Cheers Craig
