    cork rod handle

    I'm working on an old St croix rod 40 yrs. + the handle is in good shape but dirty. It sanded up nice & clean. Is there some kind of sealant/preservative that I can put on it? Or do you just leave it bare? Any info would be greatly appreciated.. THX in advance. jjm

    Mr Clean Magic Eraser will make dirty grips look like new... Follow up with a coat of U40 Cork Seal...

    I have had good success with a little simple washing with Dawn soap, the cork grips looked good.

    I have used U40 in the past. But I prefer to keep mine bare. I like the feel better. I also second the Mr. Clean eraser for general cleaning. It removes less cork than sanding, and does a good job.
