Just wondering how it compares to the carbon fiber handles out there. I have an old carbon fiber handle, but the grip is completely gone...so time to upgrade! <BR> <BR>I like the looks of the Murray, but not sure how good it is for passing, grip, etc. Anyone know? Shaun...maybe you're out there for a quick review??? <BR> <BR>Thanks!

Care for a suggestion on a different handle?

What you got??? I was wanting a white handle to match my white rope, so it was either the Murray or the limited edition Straight Line. The Murray is a lot cheaper (like half) so I was looking at that one first.

I have the limited edition Straight Line =D <BR> <BR>Not for sale though, sorry. But let me tell you, it ROCKS. Best handle I have ever owned. Front the cash bro, it's worth it.

I have an 06 Murray handle and I LOVE it! Its definitely a smaller diameter handle and it has a trigger grip to it. Everybody who has used it has loved it as well. I dont mind the grip of the straightline carbon handles, but I was worried about how much damage it could do to your board, your boat, and even yourself. Imagine taking that thing to your dome!

the trigger grip didn't fit my fingers quite right. definitely hold it before you buy it.

was using the new Murray handle in the beginning of the season, and it liked it at first, but then <BR>started to feel the ends of the handle kinda roll when edging.( look at the pic of Keith Lyman in WMB, can see the handle roll at the edges). <BR>Maybe just a mind game thing, but I went back to my carbon handle shortly after and now use the murray handle on my trampoline. <BR>
