Mud Hole’s Handle Selection

Getting a grip for your custom fishing rod is all about balancing performance and comfort without sacrificing any style points.

There are many grip options, so a good place to start is the material itself. Whether you choose cork, EVA, carbon fiber, or Winn, each grip brings its own benefits to your fishing experience. Knowing each grip material has unique attributes and advantages, these are very important to consider when building your own custom fishing rod.

For instance, many anglers, often from the Tennessee region, love the look and feel of cork grips. Nothing says classic more than cork, but since cork is semi-porous, it allows contaminants to penetrate its structure.

Deteriorating the grip from the inside, cork requires some extra protection and U-40 Cork Seal is the best solution! Cork seal outworks your environment to keep that cork feeling brand new for life.

Cork Seal is just one preventative measure that preserves fishing rod grips, there are many more tips and tricks for all handles so check out Facebook Live’s Get a Grip episode from Feb. 22!

Complete Handle Kits are a quick and easy way to choose your custom handle assembly.

Cork Fishing Grips

Cork is obviously popular for its classic look, but it’s also a fishing favorite for its consistent weight, comfort, and performance.

Available individually or in complete kits, cork handles come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes so you can find the perfect setup for you!

EVA Fishing Grips

In the beginning of EVA, it was too soft and spongy. Soaking up water while fishing, old EVA grips would quickly grow mold and waste away.

Today’s EVA scores much higher on the durometer. Meaning EVA now maintains its comfortable feel, while adding more density and durability for a firmer handle.

Not only is modern EVA material improved for performance, it’s also even easier to work with. From installing and shaping, to fishing and storing, EVA brings many awesome benefits to your angling experience.
