    The reason for the thinner chives, anybodies guess, other than that it is normal AAA cork and even on that lots of filler is visible.

    Are there any rods using a flat section on the top of the upper handle for the thumb to sit on ? Ive allways thought my handles would feel better in the hand if the upper cork had a flat ish section for my thumb.

    Make it flat yourself, simple job with scratch paper, 600 -800 gauge. Just remember sanding / filler

    The rod i mentioned yesterday about the handle needing filling isnt half as bad as the seller said on the phone. My old rods are loads worse and ive not even thought about filling them

    Question Which is best way

    The cork on my DTX has developed a few good sized holes. I've never tackled a cork repair before, what materials do I need to fill and finish the handle and where do I acquire them, thanks.
