Slim reverse half wells premium fly rod grip with a longer front taper

Firm new season cork with some minor markings and a little tidy filling.

The listing is for the cork grip only. The reel seats shown can be purchased separately.

The reverse half wells grip is found on most production fly rods up to #6. Compared to my fishtail version, this model has a longer front taper with the swell closer to the grip centre.

Two versions offered

Picture 1: 7" 175mm flor cork grip, 7mm bore, not inletted and with a slightly larger rear flare to fit any seat up to LC5/LC20 (with care could fit LC25). Free inletting if you are purchasing it with an uplocking reel seat.

Pictures 2-3: shorter 6.75" 170mm near flor cork grip, bore 8.5mm pre-inletted 19.5mm, to fit LC1, LC4, LC7, LC10 reel seats, will also fit my UL reel seats with a little careful sanding of the recess. Ideal for my s-glass and shorter carbon fibre rods. Supplied in shrink wrap film.


Length 175mm (7") or 170mm (6.75")
Diameter at thickest part: 24.5-25mm
Bore 7mm / 0.28" or 8.5mm

Rear flares to 26.5mm (170mm grip) or 28mm (175mm grip)

On request free inletting on the 175mm grip for recessed hoods if purchased with one of my uplocking reel seats.

If you are purchasing a grip with one of my blanks, the grip will be reamed to fit the blank free of charge.

I normally build all my own handles from scratch, but due to the cost of cork and the difficulty in finding a decent grade, I decided to just buy a pre-formed one. I am so glad I did. The handle is nicely formed and made from a decent grade of cork. I added a small rubber composite ring to the butt end of the handle as i like that style, and turned it down a little so suit my hand, but straight out of the box these handles are superb.

This has been built up into my favourite "Euro Nymphing" rod. I have had it on the river a dozen times now for Grayling through the winter and its a joy to use. So light, but responsive.
