Ok you surf experts I've got a question about surf ropes. First, I've done a search regarding my question and have not found an answer. Second, I just bought a new board and am going to start this year, but not a rope yet. So here goes: Why the small handle or no handle at all? I haven't seen this question addressed before.
Thanks in advance, now fill me with knowledge.

The last thing you want is for your feet or other parts of the bod to get caught up in the rope that close to the boat. Hence no handle (beavertail) or small T handle or small Wake style.2007 Mobius LSV

I' been looking at the different types and have about settled on the T handle. I don't think that my wife and others would be able to get up with the no handle rope and after reading a post on wakeworld I'm not sure that the small wake handle is the safest way to go.
Thanks for addressing this issue for me, somethimes the little things need to be talked about from time to time so people new to the sport are not left guessing.07 Mobius LS--Razorback Red

we have a small handle right now.
cousin had one with tennis balls weaved into a rope. there were 4 of them, about 1ft apart. I preferred that one the best, but haven't been able to find one anywhere...'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

We went with the T handle. Money well spent. We all started last year (myself, wife, sister inlaw) and no one had a problem with the T and we don't have a tower which helps like you wouldn't believe.

I ordered the T handle, should be in any day now. Now if the weather will just warm up a little more I could get started.07 Mobius LS--Razorback Red
