Bass Pro Shops XPS Pro Wrap Handle Grip Wrap
Good for the price
This is a pretty good product if you just want to save the cork on your favorite rod. I applied it on 2 of my more expensive salmon/steelhead rods and it goes on well if you wipe down the cork with a damp rag beforehand. When i got to the end i just used a small strip of electrical tape to keep it on. that is the only disadvantage of this product. Its hard to get the end to stick to itself. But elect. tape seems to be the ticket. The tape isn't as good looking as the cork of course but if your main objective is to look good while fishing then you should probably stay home with the wife.

another great product
I use the rod wraps on every rod I own. I don't leave BPS with a rod without picking up a rod wrap at the same time. They protect the cork and allow for better grip when wet or dry. Only change I would like to see is more colors to choose from. If there were more colors I could color code my rods with them. Doug

The wrap is a great product only in black. I purchase red and after about two day's of fishing the wrap was already starting to get dirty, I wish I had my money back so I could go back and buy some black wrap.

Hard to apply but worth it.
I got these on every rod that I use consistently. They protect your cork and keep your rod from slipping from your hands when fishing conditions are less than optimal. I have no idea how they wrapped the rod in the picture as I cannot get mine to lay down on the cork nearly as perfectly as shown. I have a hard time wrapping them around the power hump grip. I just wrap my cork up to the reel seat anyway that way I can still feel the blank when fishing. All of mine are black and granted they do not look as nice as the cork, they sure make up for it ergonomically.
