Anybody use the new Heavy Duty no flock yet? I tried calling Getbit and they weren't to helpful about actual thickness compared to the regular. They tried...lol Thanks
Checked them out...looks interesting. Too bad they only make it in 17" Makes it spendy and awkward for a 30" deckhand grip. Did you use hot water or heat gun?View attachment 1289949
Take a look at Sniper Skins
They are a tough pvc type material. Was very surprised at how well it held up on the rail, wasnt planning this trip and just grabbed this rod I'd just built. .
2 giants and every one of us had it on the rail for quite a while on Memorial day.
a few scuffs of the print but it held up very well. I would not replace it for Cold Shrink or a Rail Dog as a rail rod. But it more than worked for this 2.5 days trip. I have it over 2 layers of cork tape and really like it. Feels really nice in your hands. they are sort of tacky and they started out as hockey stick grips and have added fishing, softball, golf etc. Some cool patterns.
So, if you want something tougher than x-wrap.. this is a very good alternative.
And they look and feel good while fishing. all the deckhands and the Capitan all commented on the rod and the build.
