Handle and Vest?
 
Need help picking out a handle/rope and a vest. Where i'm at, comp vest aren't necessary. We don't have comps and the G&F love to pass those tickets out here. I want one that isn't poofy, or 200 dollars. A good affordable vest that is thin.

Also, Handle. I currently have a Ronix (don't know the model). Its a thick handle covered with a cloth fabric. It grips good but i hate the thick handle. . Are the Prolines any good? They seem fair priced. roughly 70-80$. Or any other recommendations?

Thanks all

Proline LG handle is what most people seem to like but I can't find it without the line. The newer lg 3d's or LGS's don't look as grippy to me but i haven't tried them.

For a USCG vest the slimmest/most flexible would this year's or last years Liquid Force Watson or a Ronix Capella. Pretty expensive but occasionally you can find them on sale.

I was in the market for a new handle for a while, and I tried a bunch until I found the Proline LG. It is an extremely popular handle and I can see why. everything about it just feels right.
I just picked up a combo from Dicks sporting goods for a decent price and I'm stoked

I got myself one of these. $45 at Costco, same one, but different color that HO Pursuit that sells for $70 directly from HO.

Works great for me. A lot more comfortable and flexible than my previous HO one that was equivelant to it when it was new, that was about 10-15 years old. They have come a long way in design since then.
