Poor mans' DW foregrip...

$18 worth of CF tubing and a "borrowed" fitting from work (with a bit of grinding), plus some contact cement...








I've got enough tubing for a couple more. I meant to drill out the fitting more to save weight but got impatient.

That looks really good actually. Be nice if you could find something to plug the bottom but I like it!

How about gluing in a screw-in mount, so that you can put all sorts of stuff on there?

nice job, also seems like it would be a little more comfy than the cf grips that are about as thick as a roll of dimes...
