Locking Tennessee: This reel seat is truly a piece of art meets fish catching ingenuity. The entire reel seat, threads and all, is encased or made out of cork. So the only thing your hand will touch is the highest grade cork available. A very popular one among long time Thorne Bros. customers.
 
Straight Cork Tennessee: A minimalist handle that you will have to attach your reel to with some sort of electrical or special reel tape. We bring back a classic handle and offer it to those wanting it on a modern rod.
 
WINN Grip Spinning: WINN grips have been popular in the custom golf club game for years, now they can be found in the custom fishing rod world as well. A durable grip that retains its tackiness in many different situations.

Fore Grip Styles (Baitcast)

Epoxy Roll: This is a popular option for those who do not want/need a fore grip. Allows for instant contact to the blank and cuts the most weight possible off of the rod.
 
2" Standard: This is a 2" standard cone style reel seat. Offers a classic look and feel to your rod.
 
SK2 EVA-Locking: This is a locking style fore grip built out of EVA foam. The foam actually goes over the locking piece on the reel seat and screws down as close to the reel as possible. Allowing for a tight fit and feel. Only available with the SK2 reel seat.

Handle Material:

Cork: A Classic look and feel. We use only the highest grade of cork when making our custom rods. This is the standard option, and our most popular.

Syn-Cork: Syn-Cork is an inorganic material that will not dry-rot or deteriorate. It is incredibly durable, and slightly lighter then regular cork. It has a rough texture, but smooths out after use.
4" WINN with Cork Hybrid: This is a combo that has growing support from many anglers. Combining the classic properties of cork with the eye-catching comfort of a WINN grip, this handle gives you the best of both worlds.
