Question Fighting butt

I'm spinning up a 7wt St. Croix ultra legend. Burled cork handle shaped on the blank, with the help of a friend. Thanks Pete! I'm even thinking of attemping a simple diamond butt wrap. I want to make a small fighting butt out of the burled cork, I think I can handle that. My dillema is what to use to seal the end of the butt. I'll have 2 burled cork rings on the blank below the reel seat. Anyone know a source for composite (rubberized) cork material or have any creative ideas to cap off the end?
