I have been using a handle guard for probably 10 years. In the last few years I'd say I've seen an increase in the prevelance of handle guards. I think it's a great development.
With my handle guard I've experienced issues with keeping it attached and in the right place. I see the zip ties blow off sometimes and it gets pushed around a lot to where I need to adjust it during sets to ensure I have enough of a gap to grab the handle. Does anyone else have these issues and, if so, what have you done about it? I tend to leave the zip ties a little loose as it seemed to help them from getting ripped off during a fall and it also allows the handle to be adjusted a little easier. Just wondering if anyone has developed any bulletproof methods for dealing with these issues.
I'm also curious why none of the handle manufacturers haven't developed a handle that has a guard built in. That would be a welcome development in my book.
By the way I currently use the fluid motion guard.
Not sure how to deal with a long link?
