Good cork can be found, but it will cost 50 bucks or more for a real nice cork fly rod grip and that is why the production rods have such poor cork. The composite cork and burl cork is so much better at the same price point as cheap cork. It is stiffer and stronger, it feels better to cast because it is not mushy, and it can make a real nice design of the grip. I make my own grips and use the composite and burl cork. If you want a real good cork grip, you will have to order a custom rod.
