I want to buy a new rope and handle. Does anyone have a suggestion for a new rope and handle that doesn't cost a fortune (under $100)? <BR> <BR>~J. <BR>

You can call Grizzly Sports and see if they have any 2004 jacket lines left - they'll let it go for $50. Not sure about the handles...

What do you guys think of the Bullet Ski Lines? <BR> <BR>~J. <BR>

Why go cheap? <BR> <BR>A good rope lasts years. Get a good one. A good rope is key.

True GD. But what about handles. I've had 3 $80 handles all of which tear in 1 month. The only handle that has lasted is my $50 Hardline handle.

True. Handles are another story.

What would you consider "a good rope"? <BR> <BR>~J.

Hey John I have a Accurate Spectra Fusion rope in perfect condition that I'm thinking of selling and also a gethighsport.net Thai Stix T-handle. Both are near perfect. Let me know if you're interested and I'll get you some pics. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by jroth97gt on July 14, 2005)

I have a bullet lines rope and handle from ebay. 65 for both and have used them for two years now. No problems. Not a carbon handle but durable and comfortable.

David, while I love Carbon fiber handles (and my next handle will be carbon fiber), my experiences with them is that they last about a season because they are so fragile and chip easily. Regular wake handles on the other hand will last years.

I have a Fly High Double Diamond Handle with a Spectra Fusion rope for $100. <a href="http://www.boarditup.com" target="_blank">www.boarditup.com</a> This is not cheap stuff, just inexpensive. It is the most durable stuff on the market and what I used before I became a dealer because of its durability.
