    Question about Handles

    If you wouldn't mind, can you describe what it is you love about them? Weight, length, form, color, size, fit in your hand, sorry to ask so many questions, love to hear but some people don't use as may adjectives as I would. Women (I) use 3 times as many words. As much detail would be awesome...

    TGN High Mountain White

    If you are going to set it in epoxy for the final setting Loctite Marine epoxy is excellent (YMMV) but from our experience, once it is set it is done for the rest of the life of the knot and handle (set up time is long longer than 1/2 hour depending on temp). Basically, if there is a mistake...

    face lotion with sunscreen?

    For drug store - Neutrogena spf `100+ is excellent. For department store - moisturizer combo anything from Clarins. Clarins started out as a sunscreen company way back when. Cannot recc. them enough. But I am very fair (Swedish decent - red hair and blank piece of paper white skin tone).

    Hole size or knot size. what's real.

    Please don't forget that knots will vary. Sometimes, it about a half a mm either way. You just have to adjust a wee bit for it. As far as loft, my prediction is that it will vary as much as every user. Not only height but firmness and backbone. We have adjusted backbone by flattening out...
