2010 LG Series is nothing short of everything a handle needs! All old LG problems are fixed this year AND they look dope!

the 2010 accurate murray is unbelievable. easily my favorite handle to date. The grip is a little wider, tackier and more comfortable than last years. Sure to be a big hit this year. check it out.

the only thing i am worried about is the grip coming off....is this a problem with either handle?

My buddy has had a 2010 LG handle for the whole second half of this last summer. He's ridden at least twice a week, his handle still looks brand new. The grip hasnt even loosened

JT, go with the LGS. with the stitching everywhere it will make the handle last a lot longer. and it feels better imo.

the murray seems like a standard LG

question...i love my LG and its the only handle i've used in the last 3 years and its the one i'll keep using...BUT...every single one of my handles has ripped at the stitches...SO why would you guys stitch the entire handle knowing that they typically rip at the stitches?

i'm just sayin...

JR,

The material has evolved with the stitching process and the pattern in the stitching has actually added strength to the typical areas that have seen the wear and tear issues. They have improved and made a great product even better. The R&D is seeing big improvements in the wear and I think you will be real happy with the longevity of the 2010 line.

These handles have the EVA core stitched directly to the LG material. Yeah I was w/ you where I was concerned about increased tearing and warranty issues etc. But the reality of the stitching it has made the LG grip stronger by attaching the EVA and LG at hundreds of points all over the grip rather than just the main seam. Basically it shored up the bunching issues and made the grip super durable with increased traction. These have been out on the water for over a year w/ testing. See for yourself...

I would tell you the quality of the old LG's sucked, but I hear they have now addressed those issues...and I would hate to be viewed as the "personal vendetta" guy.

DOPE!!! I like the 2010 LG, it seems to be holding up better than anything we've had to date. and thats with 3 people using the handle daily...

i can't wait to get an lgs then...

It would be cool if we could trade our old LG handles for a new discounted LGS instead of turning them in under warranty. Mine has been warrantied once and the new one didn't last as long as the one I turned in under warranty.

The LGS comes in different diameters, corresponding to different stitching patterns. I just got the diamond stitching pattern, which is the same diameter as the small LG (LG1). I rode with it today for the first time and liked it.

There's also a straight stitching and a box stitching. I think box is next larger, and straight the largest in diameter.
