If you want to go cheap, check out your local electrical supply house.
It's not fancy like the X-Flock grip but you can score plain black shrink wrap for pennies a foot.

Had a reel seat come loose on a Tsunami and cut away the old cork tape and use the heat shrink on it after repairing the seat, it worked out pretty well. I used the cheapo electrical stuff, it has held up well and has a good grip, even when wet.

Agreed I had a Lami that the cork wrap was loosening up on. I went and bought some 1" shrink tubing for 4 dollars x wrapped the rod handle with #14 wire and Heated it all up. Worked out great.
