Which handle would be the best to get? My in laws ran over last handle (don't ask) and said they would get me anything out there to replace it. So I'm asking, what's the best (not necessarily which is the most expensive. I can figure that out on my own)

Proline Clutch grip.
I had the Premier handle for a while. The clutch grip is super soft rubber, not EVA.

well, if you want the most popular and most expensive (i think they're the most expensive), go with accurate's carbon handle. but, if you can get a chance to check out the hardline dhs, please do so before buying the accurate carbon. i've had mine since end of '03 and it's still comfy and not falling apart (yet).

don't listen to Joe. Everytime he rides with us he uses our Accurate carbon and he brings his own DHS. No wonder why his DHS is not falling apart yet

I've got an Accurate Parks Carbon and I think it's the best handle I've used.

I have a couple of the EVA type and a Proline, which I've been using lately - it's soft rubber like SoCalrider mentioned and grips better than EVA's IMO.

Check out the Nevin handles. They are sick. They look like the carbon handles, but are flexible on the sides and they have machined grips instead of molded. They look really durable and feel really good.

I've been tempted to try that Nevin. I hate the carbon fiber handles - banged up my hand the first time I tried one, but the Nevin seems different.

I absolutely hate the Accurate Carbon's they break, they cut your hand & honestly I just don't like the stiffness. The Nevin handle is sweet as hell, the Colin Wright one is tight!! I still use my old school, original Accurate Recon, I like it a lot. No wrap handles either.

go with any of the LF handles. They got it goin' on this year. I had a watson handlef from last year and it kept falling apart, but they fixed the problem for this year. Insted of taking the foam grip and wrapping it around the actual handle and then gluing it making a seam, they somehow got the foam shaped into some tubing, or that's what I would imagine, because it's seamless. My handle became the favorite for a while, except on Insano's boat, when we would always have as many ropes as we had riders.

I'm planning on getting another LF Watson handle this year.

i've got an 04 accurate zero-g carbon handle, if you take care of it, it shouldent get dinged up to much. and new for this year they claim that carbon handles have a ding resistint clear coat, and they even come with a very nice carrying case.
