    I went to replace some cord on a foregrip and realized that the imprint it left on the EVA underneath it feels/looks awesome! Do you think it will stay imprinted or will it eventually rise and level? [​IMG][​IMG]

    I think it looks great! Be pretty badass if it stays that way. Maybe just wrap the cork and leave the EVA foam bare to see if it stays textured?

    Do you think you can add pics of the specs on your ugly stik? Going to order mine this weekend.

    It stayed after fighting multiple yellowtail and digging me fingers into it. Feels awesome and gives you a nice contour to lay your fingers into. I'm doing this to a few other rods.
