Great Cork grade Trout spey / switch or Spey fly rod grips
Fore grip 10" 255mm or 14" 355mm, rear grip 4.5" 115mm. Ideal for 10' - 15' two-handed switch or spey fly rods.
There was a dearth of decent quality, comfortable and slim spey/switch grips in the market - until now.
Taniwha Rodworks exclusive spey and switch handles are made to our own design in Portugal using the same 'Great Cork' grade we use in our other exclusive fly rod grips, at a price that compares favourably with the cost of buying equivalent quality cork rings. Made from firm new season cork with a little tidy filling, with duracork end rings. The rear grip is supplied with a duracork plug for easy fitting.
The listing price is for the handle only, sold as a two piece set. The Lemke LC25am reel seat shown can be purchased separately.
Choose between no inlet, uplocking (inlet in the foregrip) or downlocking (inlet in the rear grip to reverse mount an uplock reelseat).
If purchased with any of our reel seats the grip can be inlet to fit free of charge. For seats purchased eslewhere we can inlet up to 23mm for a fee. You will need a reel seat with a trim band not an endcap. Check the reel seat ID will fit your blank.
If purchased with one of our 2-handed blanks, we will ream the grip to fit. This service is not available for blanks purchased elsewhere.
Delivered in a PVC tube so it gets to you in the right number of pieces!
