My wife is wanting her own rope/handle combo for her birthday. She want something that has a soft feel to it. It probably wouldn't hurt if it was pink also.

I recommend the Proline LG (leather grip) handle, it's the texture of a chamois. It is the first handle I have ever been able to use without gloves. I have small hands and have always had trouble because I can't wrap my fingers around all the way. I can hang onto the LG and it is super soft when wet. Unfortunately, I don't think it comes in any girl colors.

I use an old 04 or 05 (yes Pink) soft premier handle with a new pink and black Ronix Core rope. I have used the Ronix North handle....very nice to use.

I have tried the girls specific handles, but to me, my nails dig into my hands using them. Not sure if it is because I am used to the guys handles or if my hands are too big for the girls diameters.

Same as Alice W.. I find the LF Jett (or the Spyder which is the same in a diff color and cheaper) to be super comfy. not just for me, all the guys in the boat love it as well.

I use the Accurate Ruck/Era handle. It has a larger diameter & my hands don't fatigue as much. It's not like I have man-hands or anything though.

my personal fav is the proline has a smaller profile so little hands can hang on. even my 6 year old daughter loves it...i also like that it is 17 in vs most handles being 15 in great for handle passing...husband hates this handle though...he gets hand cramps because of the profile being too thats some input from both sides..i know that i didn't like the straight line bantam...or whatever it is called...after sessions on that i couldn't go anywhere without people knowing that i had just gotten out of the water...they would simply "read my palms"
