Default EVA foam grips

Is it better to shape grips on the lathe then install on rod, or just shape them after they are installed. I usually shape after grips and reel seat are installed but this time I am using the winding checks and dont want to scuff them up while shaping.

Get them sanded and prepped on a mandrel and than install. Clean up really good then after they set up sand again with 400 grit up to the winding check.

Should be able to sand on mandrel to what you want. Then install.Final sand with 220 should be ready to go. Good luck-Bill
