I’m not sure but I think I might have seen those carbon fiber sleeves on a couple of custom black hole rods recently. I didn’t know what I was looking at at the time to tell the truth and the builder was pretty busy. Didn’t want to take up too much of his time.

I thought they looked awesome, but wondered about their durability and if the handle would become slick when wet.

So it’s sort of a sleeve instead of the typical foam or cork that’s often used to create the rear handle. Definitely cool. Wish I’d asked the builder more about those sleeves when I saw them. :)

    Just installed one on a BU-BA3k9/30-50 and they are amazing! Even when a little wet i still get a great grip on the butt. The butt cap was very well designed with the rounded rubber ball. It is comfortable when fighting fish and sits well when i stand it up at the jetty.
