Re: What rod handle material do you prefer?

i really adore a great cork handle but i dont hate the latter such as good eva and i thought i would hate the monocoque stuff but its actually pretty good also.

Anyway it was a 150 boat field and it was pretty rough running to our spot i had my rods strapped down with...
