Handle question


Post by Gunpowder Angler »

I am going to build a 4 weight, 6'9" rod for my personal use. I plan on using a full wells handle for this rod. Why do more people not use this grip? It is a matter of balance or personal taste? All of the rods that I have bought have the reverse full wells. I like the feel of full wells. Thank you ahead of time. Derek
