Looks like Nevin has changed names or was it a buy out. Anybody have any info. What other companies have disappeared since last season?

"Nevin, which has been innovating ropes, handles and vests for all watersports for years, has split off a wake division and renamed it Helium. They still have the same cool products and Josh Sanders and Collin Wright riding for them. In fact, their new TCH II handle combines the best of carbon handles and rope handles in order to give you a stiff handle that won't dent or chip anything, including your melon."

I rode the new Helium ropes, handles and vests.

WOW, I used the CGA Collin Wright vest and it was like a comfortable shirt. The arm holes were huge and there was no bunching or "spare tire" around my waist. The support was great through out my body.

The Nylon coated line and new handles were great also. The grips are more oblong than round to help with fatigue. The handle was almost as light as a carbon and just as stiff

The new 2006 site is up to take a look.....

Anyone ever notice how much water those vests hold? I swear that Collin vest weights 20 pounds when comes out of the water.

I spent the majority of my pull in and under the water. I didn't notice much difference from my current vest(HL HIFI) to the Helium

How are the new handles? I saw that the signature series are 15" but there is a 17" Dragon. I think the 17" handle sounds like a great handle for me.
