""I guess my question to all of you is would you balk at purchasing a quality fly rod that used either composite or reconstituted cork to build the grips(s)? ""

Yes I would. If I am going to drop $650 on a rod, I want a nice cork handle that I can cover with fish slime and human blood from sticking hooks in my fingers. These kind of new fangled handles sound fine for a TFO or Cortland rod, though.
