A recently published patent application caught my eye. The application was titled “Fishing Rod with a Sports Style Handle” and published as US Pub. No. 20070193105.
The application describes the invention as:
A fishing rod assembly is provided in which a sports style grip is incorporated into the rod handle. Sports include, but are not limited to–golf, tennis, baseball, pool, hockey, hunting, motorcycling, and auto racing. The sports style grip is representative of a grip found on a piece of equipment used by a participant of a particular sport. For example a grip used for a golf club or tennis racket, the handle of a baseball bat or pool cue, or the stick shift found in a sports car.
