    How do you get that handle through the loop on the end of the rope? Looks like they could be a pain at tournaments...

    Nice review. Cool loop system

    Thanks for the review, very valuable, good stuff. Cool concept on the rope. Any thoughts on how well this will work as the rope ages do you think it will still be easy to open the loop next year? Is there a way to adjust the length if out of tolerance? Thanks.

    @MattP you have to put the handle on "backwards" then fold the knot over - i.e. put the handle loop through the rope loop, then back through the handle loop. We have several guys around here who use them and it caught me by surprise in a tournament.

    Actually, the US Gear rope has a larger loop at the end where you attach the handle so it makes it easier to attach any handle.

    The handle has a large loop as well, so it makes it easy to attach to any brand rope.

    They work great seperately and a terrific used together.

    The US Gear handle rubber is as grippy as any on the market, is long lasting and the shape of the handle is anti-roll which is very easy on the wrists and forearms. No knobs at the ends to pinch your fingers.

    I buy the Rathburn Spectra model, 12" Pro comp radius.

    Where can you order the rope? It is not on their website.

    @bananaron, the Rathbun is made with spectra rope versus regular nylon rope; plus it comes with a ski guard down the main section of the handle rope. I think it is well worth it, I have one and I love it.

    @JC McCavit, it is sort of hard to find; http://www.usgearonline.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PLST&Store_Code=USGEAR
