So at the end of last year the girlfriend ran over my bullet lines rope and handle ruining the whole rope and wrapping it around the prop. The handle is OK, but the grip is loose and needs to be replaced or glued back down.
So being the nice girlfriend she is; she went ahead and bought be a new rope off of Ebay... Ended up getting this rope, but in orange. (Hopefully it is bright enough for her to see it now LOL) I just received it yesterday !!!

Now I need a new handle, but I'm not sure which one to go with. Found some pretty good deals on Ebay for these as well.

I had an accurate handle once that was like $120 and lasted 1 season, so I am currently not high on them. I currently have a Ronix handle and we all love it.

Here is a link to one like it. I am not sure about any of the other handles. I personally like the round corners so when you are switching hands behind your back and if you don't grab it perfect you can still get a solid grip. Let us know what you decide.

I was looking at that same rope lol. But instead I bought a liquid force watson handle. Just ordered it so I havent got it yet, but picked it up for 40 bucks. Pretty good deal IMO.

I love the bullet lines and handles. When I owned my last boat I had the bullet line until someone drove over it and cut. My second line I left with the boat when I sold it but used it for 2 seasons. I purchased new line and the leather handle 3-4 weeks ago. I've used the new handle for the past 4 weekends and love it. I opted for the red line instead of black.

Hey, Aaron - I don't know anything about wakeboarding, but still I'd say you got a pretty good deal there. Nothing like a free market economy. - Deerfield
