The yellowjacket is nice (especially since it's virtually tangle free), but think about how heavy that rope is. I notice that slack is a lot more difficult to control on a rope so heavy, when compared to a lighter rope. For the record, I own a yellowjacket rope, and lust after something lighter.

Also, the Hardline waffle handle is an EXCELLENT handle. By far my favorite.

Either a yellow Jacket or Blue Blazer fom Straightline are good ropes. I just got the Premier handle and love it. I have big hands and it fits em' well. It feels a little funky when you hold it in the store, but on the water it's awesome.

Straightline Blue Blazer and Straightline Ameoba Launch EVA Handle. Super light and comfy grip.

The strongest, lightest, and most comfortable handle is the Nevin Osmosis; it's one of the few handles that comes in a 17" version; makeing handle passes easier. The jacket series is a great rope, but the magnetic fibers in the spectra (which makes it tangle-free), makes it so heavy. My opinion on the best line would be the Straightline Blue Blazer. Straightline uses NiBrAl instead of Iron (which is what Accurate uses) fibers to make it tangle-free; making it lighter.
