I can't seem to find the length of Blast handles listed anywhere. Are they 13" ?

And has anyone else besides Kent ever folded over standard handles while flying the Blast? Posted Image
All i have are 2 pairs of std 13" handles and a new (to me) blast. :>)

thanks,
-d

I didn't get my wrapped handles until I bought a 2-4. My initial flying with a standard blast was on regular handles since I was borrowing it from someone.

The other difference is the angle. Its not terribly noticeable until you try to fly a shockwave on blast handles ;P Blast handles are a bit straighter.

And nope, neither Tak or I have bent any handles in our wintery escapades.

He's into the B series, choreography and coloring.
She's into a bridleless SUL and skiing with a Blast.
