ODI Rogues feel like Coke cans. They're huge. I don't have 'em but my one friend does.

Woah. The Rogue are uncomfortably huge. I will never buy a pair. I'll stick with Longnecks or some other kind.

Animal Edwins or Longnecks!


The new Duo Homan grips look nice as well, if they are out yet.

I was going to get Duo Cranmers until I saw the ODI Longnecks. I heard how good the Longnecks were so I got them.

I have Duo Cranmers, i rode them for like a week, and hated them. I'm looking forward to the Homan grips though. Any mushroom style grip is worth a try in my mind.

I also am looking forward to the Homan grips. Supposedly, they are going to comfier than both Edwins and Longnecks. Somehow, I don't think that's possible.
