Rope and handle
 
my handle ripped this weekend and its about 4 years old and my rope is worn out also. What are good handles that wont destroy my hands? And are there any good combo setups out there?

Been really happy with this:

(Especially since I got one on clearance at Dicks last year for $35)

Sometimes it pays to be in the midwest. When the watersports season ends here, they usually slash their remaining stock to 50% off. That put it at $50. Then I had a $15 off a purchase of $50 or more coupon. So is it common? No, but it does happen. I believe it was in September.

I just bought a prolonged with the plastic coating on it and love it! It runs through your hands with no burn at all. But this years handles I'm not to big on luckily I had a carbon fiber one from 2 years ago I threw on my new rope!

I used one of my friends proline handles that was this years and i ended up with two blood blisters. I don't want any more of those.

I ride three days a week and take two-three sets a day.

Damn ur hands should be super conditioned by now . I didn't like the sl Handle that has the oblonged shape cuz it felt like it spun in my grip. But didn't seem to hurt or anything

I used the lgs series handle that destroyed my hands, but I did like the size of the handle it fit my hands real well. I was looking at the lg series and it seems to look a lot more smooth compared to the lgs since there is less stitching. Am i right or wrong?

FWIW, the LG handle has never torn my hands up...

Also, there is a good deal on Company rope/handle combos on ebay right now. Not sure if you like the "tractor grip" style handles or not...

Haha I hate tractor grips! i had one for a week and got a new handle! thanks for the help! As of right now I'm sold on the lg series.

Its a good bang for the buck. There are better out there, but they cost a good bit more.
