Foam lasts longer for me it seems and don't get that slimy feel.

Cork, the only reason is just because I prefer them.

I like which ever one catches the most fish.

This^^^^

Honestly though, I have some of both and really have no preference. The cork does get dingy looking from riding around in the rocket launchers and the foam does not. They clean up well with MagicEraser.

I prefer rope mostly because I build my own rods, and cotton rope is easy to get for me.

EVA here myself, on all my rods.

I like the feel of them while fishing, just hate trying to get the slime off of them when cleaning up afterward. Planning to build a few more before the winter bite heats up and was curious what others preferred. Thinking about split eva grips with a paracord butt wrap on this set.
