I've been looking for a good rubber grip handle. I want one with a grip like the black old school rubber handles. I just think those are the most sticky.

Does anyone know of a good handle with this type of grip, or something like it? Thanks.

Well, I'm not getting much feedback. Are there not any companies that make handles with this grip anymore? If not, what is a super grippy handle? I don't like foam b/c I think it slips.

CWB makes the "Clutch" which is a rubber handle. Andrew Adkinson supposedly still uses it.

I'm doing the same thing this year-eva just doesn't last as long. One is actually in the mail for me from my local CWB dealer, but I had to special order it. Performance Ski and Surf also has them, but you have to call them.

the endure team handle by accurate is a 15" wakeboard handle with the classic black rubber grip. my shop has some of those. when we got them in i thought they were ski handles but they are actually wakeboard handles, with the t grip and all that jazz.

I have the LF Spyder handle... its great, very easy to hold on to, and all of the people that have used it have loved it as well

I have the original Clutch by Proline and love it. It is rounded over on the tractor part so it does not tear your hands up, yet gives tons of grip. So far I have not found any gimmick that works better. To me foam is not something a handle should be made out of. I have never seen one last, and I have to hang on with more than just my finger tips, which is how I hold the handle.

Fly High makes a great rubber handle that is firm and very grippy. I don't like foam too much, either. You can get the handle with rope for about $100.
