MRF handy man question: what glue should I use for this job?

I stumbled upon new/old stock of 12 year old super top of the line trekking poles. They are light weight fiberglass with cork handles. The handles had no glue at all and kind of slip off if the pole gets stuck in the ground.

When reading up on these it was mentioned that there was a batch that went out that weren't glued. I imagine the maker would happily do it, but shipping back and forth would be difficult and I'm sure I can do this myself - if I knew what kind of glue to use.

so what say, the handyman masters of MRF?

Scuff up the fiberglass ends with 80 grit sandpaper.
Dip them in water.
Dip water into the handles.
Coat the fiberglass with Gorilla glue.
Slide on.
Clamp in a couple of different directions and/or just wrap it tightly with rope.
Let it dry upside down so the excess goes into the cork.
24 hours later, try it out.

ThisOrThat looks helpful but it could be a little more specific. Painted steel and aluminum can both need more specialized recommendations but I guess the user would know this ahead of time.
