Anyone have a good method of removing fish slime etc. especially bunker from the foam grips of my offshore rods? I've tried soft brushes, water and scrubbing to no avail. After the grip dries out the chunks are gone but the telltale slime marks are still there. I take good care of my tackle and want it to look good, yet I can't seem to solve this problem! Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

Try different degreasing detergents. Try Simple Green.

If nothing works do you have the facilities to chuck the rod in a lathe?

I use the dry wall sanding sheets to shape eva (synthetic) grips. I cut them into 1/2" or 3/4" strips. Just rotate the rod and remove the top layer of dirt etc.
