I voted for what I have. I have not used it yet.. Just got in a knotted rope and anxious to try. Only surfed 1 day last October and used a cut wake rope.. I suspect my wife will not like the knotted rope..

I really want to get a surfer, but living up in the great white North sucks when you need to buy everything you want online, you get geared on shipping so bad... Wish I knew someone in Buffalo, get stuff delivered there, then just pick it up :/

....Anyone live in Buffalo? :P

Definetly the knot, there's far to much danger in using a handle

Going those slow speeds your head can potential go right through that handle in a forward fall, especialy kids with tiny little heads.

Alright great, so for safety sake go with Knot or T-Handle.

I have not seen it in person, but I believe that handle is very small, so unless you have a tiny head (ok, 2 of em) then not much chance of it. An arm could go in there I guess. I'm ordering the T myself.
