videos on making carbon grips?

I have seen the video by CFX but I need some better close ups on how to use clamps, cut of fibers that cover the end of the grips etc. Any good videos out there? Any experts living in Wisconsin area I can visit? im not interested in pouring my own foam, just want instruction on skinning, finishing the grips. t

Thanks, Buzz

Andy Dear and myself did two seperate articles on the process after we invented these type grips. They appeared in RodMaker in print form, if that might be of any help to you. Others may have a line on some videos made since then. Riley Rods may have something online still.

Thanks Tom, i will go through my issues and look them up. The Riley Rods video on utube bounced around and wasn't in focus, there must be something wrong with how the video was loaded or streamed as I can't follow it.

Buzz,
Have you looked at the video from NFC showing how they make their graphite grips? Down just a few posts, Black Widow grips, they use prepegged carbon tubing, but the procedure is there.
