Roger! It definitely feels good, pressure distribution, backbone, sensitivity. Truly Quality. I used Solid Graphite Arbors for the grips...fiberglass mesh tape over the arbors, epoxy over the mesh tape, X-flocked shrink tube last. Only drawback is that the shrink tube can be cut by a rod-holder if I trolled that rod in a rod-holder...that'll be where I drew the line if I had rod-holders other than my hands...HAHAHA! Sensitive as it gets!
