Why the one part of the rod that is least seen,and most abused . a better place for your logo is on the blank it self near the fore grip specs on one side and the logo on the other, both just splitting the center point of the blank accent wrap and finish

Think out side the box when all else fails !!!

If you use cork, you could use a small branding iron, similar to those for wine bottles.

Talk with Pac Bay, Batson, etc. They've done custom stuff before. There will be minimum ordering for the production costs.

Hello Chad.

What Kind of LOGO, a picture or just writing or maybe both?

Get a Scrimshaw machine or get someone that has one to do some work on store bought or your own home made caps.

There are a lot of way's to customize butt caps.
If Cork you can countersink the butt end and insert a coin or button then epoxy over the top.
If Metal, Scrimshaw or even painting then a protective clear coating of some sort.
If Wood, you can do so many things with wood it is hard to find a starting point, lathe, etch, carve, paint, stickers...


Tight Wraps & Tighter Lines.

Bob,

Bridgeton, NC.
