What handle is the best? Do people like anti roll handles?

    That's like asking what's the best scotch! Try a bunch and see what appeals to you.

    I'll start with the scotch then I will worry about handles! @Rednucleus

    For me. The best handle would be the masterline ergo anti roll handle if it came in larger diameter. I really like 1.06-1.09ish but it only comes in 1 inch and it’s not kind on my hands.

    This just reminded me to send our new high-end handles to Bakersfield.

    Which ever one comes with the largest diameter bar on it.

    I just switched to a InTow Spectra line handle with protective tubing and really love it. The protective tubing is a softer material than other suppliers which I like.

    In-Tow. Brenda is awesome. Call her, tell her what you like, and she will make you a great handle!

    I'm on my 3rd In-Tow 12" Straight ARS

    Masterline's biggest handle (1.183), it seems to be the best for my elbows, not available ergo or anti roll, I rotate between a bent and a straight, and use home made arm guards.

    I've never been let down by a masterline, but last season I got one of the HO syndicate handles and it was awesome! I got the .940 diameter because I am a finger gripper and that really works for me.

    But it very much is a personal preference thing. Highly recommend trying out some different sizes if you can

    Masterline ERGO for sure, along with their new Optimized Rope !!!

    Loving the new ZO Rev. S Plus Mode C3+

    @scotchipman masterline does make spectra bridles. You just have to ask.
    Intow uses uncharted spectra which will wear prematurely. By coating the spectra it gives the rope better life and will not Frey.

    In Tow (Spectra). All her handles are custom made. You ask for it and Brenda delivers. I have no idea what @dave2ball is referencing with 'uncharted spectra' but I've got well over 300 days skiing on her handle the last 3 years and barely any wear.

    How do you feel different between Masterline custom handle and In-Tow Spectra handle?
  • rockdogrockdog Posts: 540 Crazy Baller
    You’ve just got these ones @MS ? How?
  • ski6jonesski6jones Posts: 909 Crazy Baller
    I've been using InTow Spectra for about 8 years now. Never had the Spectra fray or wear out. I like the largest diameter she has, 1.183" I think. Great handle.

    I really have not had issues getting handles like others. Sounds like a bunch people got handles last fall. Just keep leaving VMs and he will call back
