Foam Core Carbon Fiber Grips

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can buy the materials to make my own? Or where I can purchase them already made? Riley Rods looks like a great place to buy everything that I want, but I can't get a hold of them. Any suggestions?

Riley is the place to go. I've read in other forums that he can be hard to reach. However, whenever I order from him on-line, my orders are always promptly shipped. I've never had the need to talk to him first.

That being said, it is possible to make them with components from other sources. Google around and you'll find sources for carbon fiber sleeving and 2 part, 6lb. expanding foam. You can use PVC pipe for molds. It's messy but it worked for me. Only issue I had was air pockets in the finished foam. I just go to Riley now.

Otherwise contact one of our moderators, A.W.Wolfram, and perhaps he can build some for you. He's been one of the leaders out there when it comes to carbon fiber grips.

Thanks Chad. I sent A.W. Wolfram a message. I've seen pics of his grips and they look great.

When you order from Riley, do you order the materials to make your own or do you order his hard core grips to go? I want to order a couple of his signature series spin split grip on the SK2 seats, but I want to order it with the trigger on the seat because it's going to be a casting rod. Also, I want to buy another full grip for a spinning rod, but I want it shaped a bit different. I was hoping to be able to talk to him about it before I ordered since I can't find a spot on the order form to submit notes or directions.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
