There are many wakeboard ropes and handles on the market, but not all are created equal. In this article, we will discuss three things that you need to know about ropes and handles to make an informed decision when purchasing one for your wakeboard.
1) Ropes – You should always choose a wakeboard rope based on the length of your board. The correct rope length is determined by measuring from the end of the handle to where it meets with the board’s binding.
2) Handles – Handle size is vital because it determines how much weight you can pull before gripping becomes difficult or painful. A more oversized handle means that less weight needs to be lifted for you to grip the handle.
Handle size is also important because if it’s too small, you might not be able to get your fingers around the top of the wakeboard rope when you release the wakeboard after pulling them up onto your feet for a wakeboarding trick.
Wakeboard ropes and handles are necessary because they determine how wakeboarding tricks can be performed.
