Hi Toby, did the two T-Handles arrive and are you about to test them?
Super curious for feedback, especially about:

- new size (width/height - how does it influence the foot rest and ability to catch the board)
- difference between the 2 handles (grip&foam/foam only)
- top grip quality
- screws and washers
- how is the 8mm alloy doing (weight/stability)
- can you feel the diffference with the rounded edges


Cheers, markus

Sorry for the late reply (been kite'n) lol

Well the handle is for sure to high 1cm maybe 1.5 less would be good. I would try 1cm less first. The handle is strong ass hell (great job). I had the board on the truck rack and it fell off smack right on the handle and just bounced back ready for a session.

First impressions
1. The flat bar when gripped by the hand feels awkward (round/oval hand grip would be great)
2. Mine came with the black grip unglued (as you mentioned I need to glue it).
3. First few sessions I found the black stuff on the handle slippery but now I've gotten use to it

I glued the handle after the first few test sessions. I found when doing Jesus walks or foot drags the handle grip slipping would allow the board to hang really low to the water.

For me if you where able to make the hand grip round/oval some how and a little lower this is the perfect air style handle. Maybe you could make plastic insets for the top/bottom of the grip area. Put one on the top and one in the bottom glue them in place and then add the grip material.

I can throw the board with almost any kind of spin and still grab it. Shit Toby lets make a new trick.... we can do a jump at the same time and swap boards in air! That would be crazy sweet trick!

I'm in lol

cheers.

I want to know how we can copy the North chicken loop/micro loop connector

This is my biggest worry at the moment.

We would only have to make one small mod for it to work on both Ozone and North kites.

BTW Macisback great job we need more people like you on this site!

Cant thank you enough, love the handle. Everyone here thinks I've absolutely lost my mind in this area (80k rider flying a 19m edge up to 20kns). They have now seen your handle and this in their mind is confirmation of my crazyness!

But the conversation stops when I'm 15m+ off the water with shit flying everywhere lol

Great work...
Need anything from Brazil let me know!
