I am not sure if anyone would be interested in an eBay auction I ran across. They have 2 straightline Bantam LE Carbon handles up for "Buy it Now" for $26!!! This is a $120 handle. Now when you go look at them, do not make fun of me, they appear to be pink, but for $26 I do not care if they were purple with streamers on the ends. This is one of the most amazing handles I have ever picked up.

I decided wth I could always use a spare high end handle and that was a great price so I snagged one.

Thanks Jesse! I went with the Kelly as well for $20. I like the fact that it attaches easily and directly to the mainline.

You should get a discount from the seller for passing the word along!

Now, do you know where I can get a non-stretch mainline for cheap??

The rope is where I never found a great deal. The closest I have found is the coated dyneema line. I bought it for $120 about two years ago and have loved it!

Here is what I bought but is by a different manufacturer. When I bought it it was marketed as Straight Line, but the specs look identical.

I need to order a pink one to match my new handle!!!

Yeah I just bought a a new ronix one handle about 2 weeks ago but I'm looking forward to trying this one and I'll decide then which one I want to be my spare.

Al,
I am guessin you found one based on the message above..
www.anothersmokindeal.com will have a Ronix Handle on later today for 50% off (should be $40..)
Here is dirt on it:
Ronix 70ft Solin Mainline – Not as buoyant and ‘floaty’ as the core series, but just as awesome, the Ronix 70ft Solin Mainline is an excellent choice for the rider looking to get some good durability out of their line. Three five foot take off sections give you customization and the 100% dyneema core is all sorts of strong. Pick up the Ronix 70ft Solin Mainline today and experience some serious wakeboarding tomorrow.
24-Strand Tensilon Cover
100% dyneema core
3 - 5ft take off sections

Got mine yesterday as well, but I bought the bantam. I'm going out to try it in a few minutes.

You know what the funny thing is about buying this handle? When I bought it I didn't really need it because I just bought a Ronix ONE handle earlier in September, but I figured what the heck its a great price and was recommended so I snagged one. Now the funny thing is the next day I went out boarding and my new Ronix handle snapped right at the trick handle and I had no spare!. So I'm glad I ordered this because the guy at my local wake shop said it would be 2 or 3 weeks before Ronix would send the new one.

And one last note I definitely think I'm going to like this one better anyway it feels really good in my hand, but I'll let you know in a few hours.

Peace

The fiance went out with me and drove so I could get a quick set in, believe it or not I can't get any of my wakeboarding buds to go anymore they say its to cold HA! Anyway I love the handle definitely like it better than the Ronix so it looks like when I get that one back it will go as a spare.
