Ok, I have heard something about this. I finally got to use my new Proline handle and the darn thing sunk after 2 sets. I heard about a quick fix of something being sprayed (foam type) into the handle but I want to make sure I use something tried and true and not just guess at it. Thanks

My understanding is that the 10 models dont sink,
What year and model is it,
I was going to look at an LGT

another idea is to make your own external handle floats with pipe insulation

I used great stuff foam and sprayed some into the bar/grip of the handle. Works well.

Or do what Jeremy said.

Yes, some of the 2008 or 09 LG's can sink. I've capped the 2010 bar so it can't fill w/ water and it's built w/ 7076-T6 aluminum = 25% lighter. I'm adding more hidden floats into the 2011 line so you don't need to wear a vest any longer.. ha..... just kidding. But not about the hidden floats..... Thanks - Casey

Just cut up one of those $1 floating noodle things and stick it in the handle. Worked great for mine

I have a LGS on order and hopefully here by Friday. I hear they don't sink and they look awesome too.

Yeah all the older ones sink... I've tried cutting up the noodles in mine, that helped a little but not enough, it still sank. I've had 3 of them and they all sink. I think I'm going to a different handle this year but I do love the feel of the LG.

LGS is the answer Stan...

Charles-Yeah I like the feel of the LGS but think I may actually stray away from the proline stuff for the first time. I'm probably going to go with a BennyG or Lyman straight line handle mainly because they have the diamond extension you can add to those handles, I want to work some wrapped stuff this year and don't like the proline pistol grips very much. We'll see maybe I'll be back next season to the LGS.
