This is my mod to my handles
The last picture is a titanium insert in a stainless steel tube.I saw this mod on the forum and I had them made for me.They are not what you would call cost effective (machining costs are expensive)

The first and second pictures are the aluminium no snag handle with my modification of a groove for the leader to sit in making it totally smooth (I made inserts for stainless tube as i didnt have enough aluminium to make all aluminium handles-just a trial)
this was an idea of Garys of the flying squad (play365)
Just need grips to finish them off



They do look nice :)

Well I think this may be as far as I can go on the rev handles
These are my "elite" no snag handles
These are no snag with a groove modification (suggestion for groove courtesy of Gary from the flying squad) for the leader to sit in so that it sits flush with the handle
Plus they are anodised in Blue,Gold and purple sets
What do ya think ?

all the best

Kimbo, in a response to your orginal question, it may be worth considering your technique too. I really only occasionally get snags when i'm doing tricks where the line goes slack so it shouldn't be something that's happening too regularly. No snag handles look sweet but when they first appeared i was kind of surprised to see a solution to a problem i'd never really experienced. Try looking at what's happening when you're getting snags - if it's in normal flight, are you over controlling to cause this problem?
Thinking about a stack . . .

Just saw a minor modification that someone did on the pro handles over on a thread at GWTW, and went and did it myself. I just took the endcaps from an old lonely handle (It's pair got lost) and slipped them over the top ends of the handles. This makes it a bit more comfortable on my fingers, which are always at the very top of the handles.


I like an end cap on my handles too! The top of the handles can get cold in the winter even in San Diego!
