That shape looks great with grooves,might add a little extra traction for grip too.

They look great with or without the grooves Sal, I'm leaning towards 'with the grooves' but not by much.

Thanks Guys!

I had some time today and decided to give this design a shot.



I know I'm now pulling away from the barrel look, but this one feels the best to me so far. The thumb rests on top really comfortably.
What do you think?

Thanks!

Man, Sal, you have a good eye for design!   That one has a classic nautical look about it, like something you would find on an old sailboat of 18th or 19th century design. 

If you could figure out how to trim it with metal...   dang!

I really like that one. It looks cool, plus I'll bet it feels great with your thumb resting on top!

Sal, you're showing us there is no limit to the designs and color variations to the handle grips you can produce. These latest additions to your already extensive range of styles look great and add to the variety of designs we can choose from to suite our reels and how we use them. Thanks for making these grips available.
