I'm thinking this could be cool on a fluke bucktailing rod.

The unique COBRA Handle Systemâ„¢ (patent pending) is a fishing rod handle that provides a comfortable grip, supports the wrist and improves control of the rod during fishing. It was the idea of an avid fisherman, Kevin Jenson, who noticed that his hand and wrist would often get tired holding the rod while fishing the McKenzie for steelhead. That led to his idea for a rod handle to support the wrist, and to "become an extension of the arm".

 

He began working on the prototype of the new handle and enlisted the help of a team of state-of-the-art composite molding experts. They produced a handle that not only supports the wrist, but increases sensitivity and control of the rod. The design includes a method for converting from right hand to left hand setup as well as a straight adapter so it can quickly be adapted to your fishing style.

 

The COBRA Handle System is a handle assembly made of a specially formulated high strength, lightweight composite material, with a unique urethane rubber over-molded grip. The handle assembly is modular in design so the elbow piece can easily be switched around with a screwdriver, converting it from left hand retrieve to right hand retrieve.

 

The optimum application is on bait casting rods in the 6# to 20# line weight categories. While it has been used to catch some good sized salmon, it is primarily designed for Steelhead and Bass fishing, and is particularly effective for back-bouncing, drift fishing, and fishing in fast water. Cast some bait out and bounce it off the bottom of the river and you can immediately feel the difference in sensitivity, partially because it contacts the underside of your forearm. In effect, it literally becomes an extension of your arm.
