what is everyones opinion on the best handle out right now, I'm really looking for something soft that's not going to tear up the hands. rode with my buddies Ronix Frank and it was crazy soft but he's went through 2 of them this year already...

I recently was in the market for a new handle, but quickly realized that I didn't want to pay $100 for something that would be torn up by the end of the season. SO, I took an 6 year old Hardline handle and re-wrapped the grip with Wilson brand tennis racket grip. It is very grippy, super soft and the best $5 I've spent in a long time.

I can't remember if I got it 1 or 2 years ago gut I have a Accurate Murry handle. It is not round like a typical handle. It is more squared off. I thought for sure it would tear up my hands but it works really well. The idea behind it is that it takes strain off you grip and forearms. I went back to a "normal" round handle and my arms hurt and my hands hurt. I'm not sure if they still make anything like that. Anybody know?

Edit: It looks like Hyperlite (Accurate) named this squared off handle ARS (anti-roll system). I like it. It looks like the Reverb or Prime would be close to what Ihave

Edit2: They do still have the Murray handle. It is a little different grip material than mine. $60 with free shipping (if you need something else).

i have a proline LGS and it's amazing! I love it compared to my old proline LG and liquid force plush. Both thoses handles are real soft, but dont compare to the LGS.

I personally don't like the "squared off" handles. I have been using the Lyman handle this year, and yes it is soft, but I have torn calluses off my hand, twice, trying to ride out sketched landings. Happened this past Tuesday as a matter of fact.
