What handles come with a triangle grip?
 
I rode a grip awhile back that I loved like the old Murray handle. It was a triangle grip but had a soft seude grip and was pretty spongy. Anybody know which one that one was?

That would be the Proline LGT, it is the same shape as the Proline Synthesis with the added benefit of a "leather" grip. Best handle made!!

OK thanks man! Does it float or sink?

I think last year's faction handle was triangular

The accurate prime handle has a triangle grip. It's the old primier handle.

08' LF team handle is triangular. Had mine for two years and love it.

Yeah the Faction one was super hard. I was looking for something a little more spongy & grippy. That Proline one is the one I was looking for.... anybody have one they wanna part with? :D

LGT sinks

Gene - I think the 2010 Proline models have improved the 1st issue, but....

(a) the handle sinks like a rock
(b) the rope/handle are super spongy

I'm told the stretchy feeling goes away after a few sets, but I didn't have that kind of patience and gave the rope/handle away.

Ask for a 2010 LGT or buy it on ridecwb.com. Just make sure it's WHT w/ GREEN screen and stitch or WHT w/ PURPLE w/ pistol. I still have some 2009 inventory floating around. All 2010 handles are capped/sealed w/ EVA so the bar won't fill w/ water. Also, all 2010 core bars are built w/ 7076-T6 aluminum (we are the only company doing this to my knowledge) are 25% lighter and stronger than 2009 or the competition. Go pick up a 2010 Proline and any other brand - you will notice the difference. Here is some more food for thought - did you know that air is more buoyant than foam? And it weights nothing. Sealed bars > Floats. If you want to make sure you get the right one you can email me and I'll make sure you will get want you want. caseyj@ridecwb.com

I will start leaking 2011 Proline images soon!!!! Good bye SL - nighty night! ;)

the murray handle you talking about earlier is the 07/08 accurate/hyperlite Murray with square grip bar. while they dont make it anymore, it is no doubt a sick handle. as russell said, the Prime is the triangular version (same as the Premier handle since 06) of that Murray and is still made today, its got anti-roll loops on the sides and of course a similar textured foam. its definitely a sick choice, check it out.
