I've used these rubber butt caps on the Emmrods for some time now. They are inexpensive crutch or chair leg caps sold at retailers like Lowes or Ace Hardware. Most fishing rods have some sort of butt cap and these add a nice final trim piece to the Emmrods while also providing a more secure grip and a place to tuck in the rod close for hard fighitng fish. The cork handle rods use a 7/8 inch cap, the Packers a 1 inch size. For cleaning they come off easily. I like them and find them very useful.
