Iím going from an old poly-e with a lot play to the Accurate fire jacket and Iím not sure on the handle yet. I should see a big difference in the line. Hopefully it works out and helps me when I ride. Iím looking at the accurate Grubb, Murray, and team for a handle.

How do you like your Parks compared to others???

A handle is a handle to me..... It feels good, does the job.... Can be a bit scary when throwing it to someone.... If I was purchasing a new one myself, I would probably stay away from the carbon fiber stuff...but some people love it.

That said, I am not buying anything different at this point.

E.J. Ė Youíre right on the handle deal, ďA handle is a handle.Ē The only difference you could feel was the texture of the grip.

Big time difference between that jacketed mainline and poly ropes. Over the last few years Iíve upgraded from a ďskiĒ rope to a poly-e (thinner ski rope) and now to a jacketed and each time Iíve had a big learning curve. Took me all weekend to make the transition, but itís going to be worth it. After a long weekend of riding my shoulders only hurt from a light sun burn and not being pulled by a crappy rope.

Accurate Jacket and Parks Carbon as well. Carbon can make handle passes easy if you cant find the grip. 2 pennies.
