Comments about 10" Speed Winch Handle, Ball Grip:
Best handle I have ever held. The side locking is very comfortable and becomes a natural habit almost instantly. The frame feels very sturdy yet light. It weights less than a Lewmar one touch. It has a snug fit in the winch yet enough play to quickly get it in and out. The handle is very very smooth with the ball bearings. They don't feel sloppy or rattle. The size of the palm grip is perfect for average size man hands. Its smaller than the lewmar one touch. To me it fits your hand better. It is also covered in rubber which gives it a better feel than just grabbing a plastic handle. The handle does not float. A floating handle has become a low priority on my list comparing to performance. It seems no high performance handles float. I have never heard anyone going back to get one either. I am also told they float so low in the water you can't find them. I am extremely picky in critical when it comes to items such as this and I am very impressed and happy with it. Top Ratings.
