I take the cord off and mix 30 or 60 min epoxy. I coat the blank where the grip will be and wrap it in with pressure and I keep the cord wraps tight together. Helps to have an extra person spin the rod. When you get to the knots, lay extra epoxy on the the surfaces to knot and tie it wet. Trim the end and hit it with a lighter to shrink in a bit. Then coat all holes with epoxy and wipe off the excess with an acetone rag. For the butts, I like to put a butt cap over the cord if the rod is not to thick. Very durable and doesn't slip. For those who don't like knots on the grip, cut a piece of shrink tubing and slide it over the end of the cord and heat it. It will be smoother if you like that. Eugene
