Anyone have any reviews on this?
I am looking for a new handle/rope combo and having a damn hard time finding all the features I want in one package. I like the idea of putting the wrap handle wherever I want, so this add-on wrap handle is attractive. But I'm wondering does it hold up? For the installation it says just tie a knot in your handle lead line (just in front of the "Y") where you want it, then screw the two pieces of this handle on.
Most handles have a plastic tube coating around the rope, so would you need to cut a section of this out to get to the bare rope I'm assuming? Also it looks like the the threads will bear a lot of the load once the two pieces are screwed together? My old wrap handle had an aluminum bar for the 6" T wrap handle, and the rope split and tied around it.
Here's what I'm looking for in a combo, so if anyone has suggestions let me know.
1) min 80ft total length with handle
2) prefer a suede grip over foam, with diameter on the smaller side
3) round bar, not oval
4) T-bar wrap handle
5) don't want one of the coated ropes (ride quite a few different boats and like to be able to adjust the rope to where ever I want it, I have a special loop knot for doing this, but with a coated rope the strain where you attach will cut into the plasticy coating and mess it all up
6) least important, but if at all possible I don't want neon green, orange etc... Too much wake gear has too much neon right now.
There is one rope I've fount that fits nearly all the bills.
It is a coated rope, but the last two sections are 2.5 ft so it will give the adjustability I need without the special loop knot. I don't really want to pay $180 for a rope/handle combo though, cause no matter what brand the grips just don't seem to hold up more than a season and a half.
Some other options, but would require the LF T-bar addition
I really like this Ambush one, and the price, but required both the T-bar addition, AND three 5 ft non coated additional sections to get the 80ft full length I want. So by the time I do all that, the $99 price point is kinda shot.
Anyone know of any other options?
I am kicking myself right now cause Evo had that Follow BP package for $144.95 a few days ago but they sold out.....
