Foam Core Source

After waiting for months for my foam core order from rileyrods I finally gave up. Still really want to build a foam core/carbon sleeve grip.

Anyone know of a source for foam cores that is not the 18# density stuff from alps? Would prefer .25" bore, .375" is a hair big for my fly blanks but if that's all I can find I may use it.

Have three builds on deck (7" grips with ~1" fighting butt) but I would take anything I could get at the moment that will build a 7" grip and 1" butt.

Pac bay only has preshaped grips, I'm looking for straight foam cores to turn myself.

Batso has Forecast foam core grip material in different lengths with 1/4" ID bore. It is the same weight foam as the Riley cores. I have both on hand and just checked them out. Can be had thru Utmost.
