ROD BUTT, FIBERGLASS/CORK
Most fishing rod butts, such as the Aftco unibutts, are made of aluminum and are quite costly. This is a fiberglass/cork butt, very moderately priced.

Included is an 11 inch cork grip, a 13 1/2 inch thick walled hollow fiberglass core (0.620" O.D., 0.320" I.D.) and a butt cap. Reel seat is not included. You put the pieces together and save. The assembly is spliced to the blank under a chrome-brass reel seat making a, permanently one-piece, rod. Alternatively, if you use a ferruled reel seat, you would have a 2-piece rod, similar in function to Aftco unibutts.

Shown are 2 ways to assemble: (1) cut off the excess shoulder to fit the butt cap, (2) sand down the edge of the shoulder to maintain full length.

The fit of the fiberglass core in the cork grip is tight. Slight sanding with a rat tail file is recommended.
