I've had some request lately for rattan grips. Here are a couple I recently finished and shipped out.

Steffen 7'3" 3/4wt 3pc






Blue Halo 7'6" 3wt 4pc

Love the grips, but I have to echo CroixBoy - the wraps on the Steffen are incredible! You sir are an artist!

Love the vintage look!
How durable are rattan grips? Are the starting and end point vulnerable to coming loose?

Very durable. And one side tucked under the other pulled under so they won't come apart.

Beautiful work, Shane...you have incredible talent. Very classy looking.

For my own fishing purposes, I'm not sure I would want a rattan grip personally....seems they might be kind of "slippery when wet" compared to cork...but I could be wrong.
