Too bad this stuff is EVA ... but, the stealth idea is there!

Hi Tom
that looks like fishing rod grip - i would imagine it should be ok for rev handles

Yep, Mooseskin makes the green camo in EVA.

I've tried several different colors of EVA and found most colors to be too slippery and too hard for my liking. The lighter colors were a little softer, but still too slippery for me. However, my son loves his EVA grips, so go figure.

Hyplon is more to my liking ... no slip and a "just right" softness. However, John B. complained that mine were too soft ... once again, go figure.

Cheers,
Tom

Somehow fitting that my first post here should be a thank you but a big Posted Image to Baz on these handles.

Has a set for a week or so now - they feel really good in the hand and very light to use. Also no snags Posted Image

all the best stephen







Just thought I would share with you my now complete set of ultra no snag handles
starting from mirror polished to
purple,blue,gold and red anodised
all have a groove modification for the leaders to sit in making the line flush with the handle (all credit to Gary of The Flying Squad for the groove suggestion)

I made some handles using 3/8 aluminum rod. After cutting to lenght I rounded off the ends and drilled angled holes for the tails. Put the handle on with a small dab of contaqct cement. Knot one end of the tail and thread thru the hole then take a 3/8 (.375) vinyl end cap, melt a hole for the tail. Slide the cover onto the tail and on to the rod. Bend to shape. Tie your adjustment knots on the tails
The grips I got at Jans Net Craft in Maumee, Ohio. I paid $1.99 each at the store. They have the same feeling as REV handles. On line they are $1.85 plus shipping. http://www.jannsnetc...ips/280177.aspx

If the link won't work try http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/ or google jan net craft. Click on rod building then handles then EVA Foam grips then fore grips and I used the 4 1/2 grips.

I just received my set of Baz handles and they are absolutely fantastic! One thing I can't get over is how lightweight these handles are. It's a major improvement over the standard handles for the weight alone, let alone the excellent snag resistance. It really adds to the overall sensitivity and feeling of the kite on the lines. Love it! Anyone contemplating these... do it! You won't regret it. I used Laser Pro Gold 100# bridle line to make the leaders on mine, and it seems just the right diameter for grooves, too... perfectly flush. Thanks Baz for taking the time to craft these beauties! :blue-grin:

Oddly enough, I prefer heavier handles ... guess I'm weird :blushing:

I actually use my Rev no-snag handles (the ones Walt makes for Rev) for my indoor rev and WAY prefer the more solid feel of the handle when compared to the feather weight of the indoor handles.

I need a set of no-snags for my B2 and as yet, Rev don't make any ... so hitting up Baz for a custom set may still be on the cards (along with an indoor set) B)

I too prefer heavier handles, probably because that is what I have always used, but I have treated myself to a pair of No snag handles from Baz and have to say they are terrific, especially when the wind is light and you need a bit more "feel" plus he was able to do them with Purple foams that matched my new purple Rev Posted Image

I fear there is a risk of end-user confusion as there is a difference between the "Revolution Authorized Pro No Snag Handles" and the anodised handles discussed here. [I have no commercial connection with either design.]
