Watersports Tow Ropes

RECREATIONAL WATERSKI ROPES & HANDLES

The standard length of a recreational waterski rope is usually about 21.3m, including a 1.5m handle. For general water skiing, the rope & handle needs to have some stretch.

A short vee handle is better for experienced skiers as it has less roll & gives you a more consistent pull from the boat. The grip on a waterski handle should also suit the type of skiing you intend to do. A soft EVA foam grip is very comfortable & great if you don’t have gloves, but a tackier brushed grip handle gives you far better grip & is a lot more durable.
