Handle Material for Fly Rods

The chief consideration in regard to the hand grasp is the material. Hand grasps are commonly made of plain wood, celluloid, wood cord-wound, hard rubber, wood Cane-wound, cork and "solid cork." All of these materials, with the exception of solid cork, make fairly good grips; solid cork makes the finest possible grip. The rod-buyer should bear in mind that the hand grasp catalogued and sold simply as cork is nothing more than a thin sheathing of cork, or a composition resembling the same, glued over a wooden form. It is the worst and most unserviceable of all hand grasps. Solid cork grips are always so described, and consist of a number of thick, graduated cork "washers" closely fitted and glued over a core of wood, making a light, strong grip, one that feels good to the rod hand and affords an easy and firm hold. And it will last. Hand grasps of the other materials, especially the celluloid grasp which is generally corrugated, are more or less hard on the rod hand in long continued casting. Next in order to the solid cork grasp the cane-wound is most satisfactory.
