    Can the foam handles on the Ugly Stiks be sanded thinner the same way cork handles can be sanded? If so, what would you reccomend to use?

    You can but....some foam grips are a harder-or softer grade, I get the best results from sandscreen for sheetrock, it wont clog and takes it down quick IF you can turn it at high speed, do you have a lathe? if not try rigging up an electric drill with 2 or 3 V-blocks.

    Thanks, Cherokee.

    No, I don't have a lathe. I don't want to take the diameter down too much and I thought it was something I could do by hand.
