Re: Best/cheapest place to get G10 grp boards?

G10 is a sub-type of "Garolite" so google "garolite". Yes, it is heavy but considerably lighter than aluminum. It would be an awful deck material. Excellent backing plate material. It eats tools. We make custom 1911 model and Sig Saeur grips from G10 and our biggest problem is keeping the mills sharp. It is expensive.
I'd like to make whisker pole end fittings from G10 for lightness and no corrosion.
