    There's no perfect answer. I prefer the large braided rope with knots. But one time, I was trying some trick and had a very loose grip on a shorter knot; I started to wash out, tried to clamp onto the rope to save myself and my hand slid down and slammed against the next knot. I stayed up but smashed one of my fingers. I wish I had just let go and I only use the last knot now.

    It's Winter here in downunder land but enjoying reading posts such as this.
    I tried as a noob to use the rope with knots but being a big guy couldn't hang on quite to get up and my knuckles would be sore for days afterwards.
    I swapped to a small handled surf rope and find getting up much easier allround, knuckles are fine, however I am very conscious about the hazard it all presents.
    Not saying this is the best way at all but I'm comfortable with it atm; I have shortened the rope length approx. 5-7ft where it affixes to the tower, once up the excess (if any) is grabbed along with the handle in one hand, ready to thow should, oh ...when, I fall. Of course I'd like to be surfing ropeless but that's gunna take a big wave! But we are getting there.

    I have a T-handle laying around somewhere. Gimme $20 and I'll ship it over to you. I'll never end up using it. I think it came with the boat.

    I guess another forum member saw this and offered to buy it off me.

    I have the second one in red/white. The T-handle.

    I've always been worried about the triangle handle catching someone's arm, especially with little ones learning to surf. SOmeone here posted a video of a guy being dragged by the arm. Scary. The T-handle is not that hard to get up.
    Also the above rope is just long enough to keep u in the pocket. I think its a very good length. You should not have to coil the rope so much while you're trying to get your balance.

    We use a proline T handle and a knotted ronix without a handle. I quit letting most use the t handle because newbies huck it back in the boat, usually long before they should be, and have dinged my gel in a few spots. That ronix is where its at.. you can drop the rope and it stays in the wave nice, without a handle to be flipping it back and forth, nobody can throw and damage it, and nobody is getting hung up, short of looping their hand with it.. if people have a hard time gripping, there are a couple of grips that work a little better I usually have them grip it with the rope coming out of their hand between their middle and ring fingers and palms facing eachother.. that usually works good.. if not, have them grip the rope, one hand above the other, knot agains their thumb and forefinger of one hand, and the rope coming out of their palm and pinkie on the other. One of these grips has worked with almost every rider weve put on that rope.

    Thanks Zackdogg for that explanation, never thought of that and will give it a go when the season opens up down here.
