I'm wanting to wrap my handles with something softer and with more grip. I'm not sure what to use. I have tried the elastic medical wrap but it seems to get sticky over time. Just wanting to see if anyone has had any luck with any other material.

Several different rod wrap styles, out there. Bass Pro brand, and now Winn grips is making one designed for fishermen, (they make golf grips).

What is the advantage of doing this? So it won't slip?

Where a racquetball glove. LOL, I like the idea of Grip Tape for a tennis racquet. I just prefer EVA grips myself.

Of course I had to go look, those Winn wraps look nice:

I few years ago I put tennis racket grip tape on two rods, they still have the same grips on them, still in good condition. The only downside is they add some noticeable weight, but nothing extreme. The grips are really comfortable and the leather gets tacky when it's wet. I've always liked it.

Anybody tried baseball bat grip wraps? Have a rod I really like but don't like the cork. Have used a BPS rod wrap for awhile but it's only good for about six months. Have seen Rawlings baseball bat wraps and "Lizard Wraps" baseball bat grips. Both are perforated and have a tacky grip feel. Think I am going to give them a try.

Cork is the best product for a "full" handled rod. Cork transmits the vibrations from the rod blank, due to a bite, to the hand. Any kind of rubber or wrap on the handle is going to dull these vibrations. Just keep your cork clean, and if necessary, rough it up a little with fine sandpaper.
Have you ever really lost a rod in the rain?
