If you are worried about dirty cork grips, sand paper will make them look like new. Just be sure you clean your hands before you pick up that rod after touching a minnow, fish or euro larva.

Some people call it Tommy Tape, but that is just one of many brands of it.


You can also find it in all different colors on Amazon. ($5-6 for a 10' roll) Silicone tape, X-Treme tape, rescue tape, all the same. I use it for lots of things but all my ice rods have it because I'm always changing reels because I break things, tough on equipment. This holds tight, doesn't get brittle and super permanent once it's stuck together. Cold/wet doesn't matter, it still sticks!

Castration bands are by far my favorite means to attach reels.

They make a special pliers but I normally just do it with a long forceps. I once you get them started they just roll on pretty easily.

Vet wrap. You can get it in almost any color, and a 10'x6" roll is only a few bucks. You'll get hundreds of 12"x1" strips. Doesn't stick to anything but itself, and wont ruin cork. Holds great.
