    Replacing smooth handle on Daiwas sealine?

    I bought a daiwa sealine x boat (SLEB7-1HR) rod online and didn't realize that the new models have what they call a "quick grip Smooth handle" which is a low friction handle in place of the standard foam grip (it's a hardeneed solid plastic material)which is suppose to slide out of the rod holder easily. I'm going to use this rod for casting and jigging so I want high friction. I'm thinking the easiest option would be to get a rod wrap to go over the existing handle. Is this rod wrap any good and do u think that it would be the best option? http://shop.mudhole.com/s.nl/categor....A/id.13662/.f
    If I could figure out how to remove the existing handle that may be more ideal because I think that the handle is heavier than normal handles. There is a sticker taht was put on the handle which gives a warning about lead so maybe the handle has lead in it which is IMHO stupid for a handle b/c that's going to make it heavy. The handle is pretty tough so I'm thinking that removing the handle w/o damaging the rod is going to be tough, but any ideas are appreciated.
    Anyone out there use this rod or this kind of new daiwa handle?
