CFX Carbon Fiber Composite Grips
CFX grips begin with a proprietary carbon infused core material. It is the weight of traditional 4 lb urethane foam but has the density and strength of 7 lb. It is stronger, lighter, and more dense than any grip material available. What this means to you is the ultimate in energy transmission, far superior to cork, EVA, hypalon or other carbon fiber grips.
CFX grips have a buffed matte finish that is comfortable, easy to grip, and impervious to UV breakdown. The end result is a beautiful grip that is lighter and more sensitive than any rubber based handle, translating to more bites felt, more hook sets and more fish in front of the camera.

These fit great, but fit and finish could be better. I always have to sand the ends more than I feel like I should need to. In general, Alps CF grips are more uniform and perfect but CFX has a better feel.
I put these grips on a couple of freshwater spinning rods whose Winn AR grips were worn out. As a rod re-build vs a new rod build, I just removed 3 or 4 of the existing guides and slid these over the remaining guides and into place on my Fugi TVS hidden thread reel seat. Once they were glued on, I let them dry for a couple of days and then coated then with1 thin coat of Permagloss. Let them dry for a couple of days to seal them good. I then rewrapped and coated the remaining guides. They turned out beautiful!
I used this on the Fuji SKSS split real seat with a carbon fiber mid body and a 11” carbon handle. Kept it simple and has held well with just normal epoxy .
