"for almost the same price but less work.. unless you like the carving part :)"
Almost the same price for what? I have tons of minicell foam so no costs there...and I enjoy carving. With a bandsaw and rasp, it took me 10 mins, tops. And did I mention that I enjoy carving?:) And I enjoy saving money...so those GG grips at $22 + their notoriously spendy shipping...well, I'd rather spend that money on something I can't or don't want to make. Besides, the holes in those GG grips are larger than my pole so there'd be retrofitting involved on top of their $~30 price...and I only need one. ;)
