Thanks for the Link! Thumbs Up Like the handles. They look sort of like a Cox handle that has been made to be used ore comfortaby, mind you, I quite like the standard handles as I am so used to them. Interesting Website also. Thanks for posting it. Beer Cheers

Csatman,
As cute as the WN handles are, and not that I'm dinging them, they look remarkably like the old Carl Goldberg 1/2A handles. Fortunately they don't have the little line spacing cut-outs of the CG handle. Those older handles appear to be weak in the line attachment points. I have one, but won't trust a plane to it...but if a WN handle arrived, I'd try it.

I really like my RSM/Larry Renger 1/2A exponential handles with changeable line-spacing inserts. The inserts make changing line-spacing a blink with very little re-centering required...if any at all. Or the included inserts can be sanded to change the profile/handling of the airplane. Alternatively, creating inserts with different profiles can alter the exponential rates, up/down or both.

Please let us know how these WN handles work out for you. I hope to hear positive reviews!

I like that they only have the notch for fore and ring finger. Should be more comfortable.
