What Is The Purpose Of Eva Knobs On A Bait Caster?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious why people are using them big foam knobs.

Cheaper, lighter and more durable than most cork.

 

I personally prefer cork, because I hate EVA when its wet.

For reel knobs??

Your rods can also go jump off your hands if its wet with EVA.

 

That black kitchen sponge material can go jump off a bridge too!  The cheap stuff anyway.  Good EVA is alright but that cork and rubber blended stuff is fantastic grip material.  I'd like to see more manufactures use it.

Winn grips are where it's at. Grippy when dry, tacky when wet, never squishy, and always soft.

When did we start talking about golf?!?

Rubberized cork grips by fenwick? love that stuff

 

TAC grips. I like it too but Im up in the air about an entire grip made from it like the aetos rods.

Yep, makes for a great grip material.

I love it as a reel knob but really prefer cork on the rod handle.

What's golf? :P My Cabela's Tournament ZX cranking rod has Winn grips. Love it! I see some custom rods using them now.

Hammer rods uses winn grips on their fishing rods. You can also buy winn split or full handles for custom rods. Hawgtech also just released some Winn soft touch reel grips, which are very intriguing.

I don't care for the Winn grips. Heavy and sticky. I prefer a quality Eva rod grip. For reel handle knobs, Shimano septons are the best imo.

X2. I like soft touch knobs as well. I despise the Abu Garcia PVC knobs.
