I use the T-handle or Knotted rope (prefer knotted). Absolutely no chance of getting an arm/leg/hand thru a handle. I cringe when I see others using old wakeboard handles with rope for surfin...Your taking a Huge chance in my book. Not worth chancing IMO. Accidents can and do happen, Im not willing to chance ripping someones arm/hand/leg/foot completely off or mangling someone cause it got stuck through the handle.

friendly reminder:

Dont coil it either when your choking up on it to get closer in the pocket. Your creating a loop de loop to put your hand/arm/let if and when you crash. (And all newbies are gonna do it...crash)

I like the surf ropes with the T handle and large knots too. Got ths one instead for Christmas http://http://www.amazon.com/Straigh...9&sr=8-2-fkmr0,. Used it twice, and don't really like it as well. If this is the style you want, PM me and I will make you a deal.

Agreed - stay away from a line with a open handle. When my friends and I started wakesurfing, one of my buddies fell and his forearm temporarily got caught. Big bruise. Went out and got knotted rope and T handle. I like the T better, some the knotted. IMO the knotted is harder to hold onto when your being pulled up.
