It's very small but has caused blood shed and pain to many men and woman. Today I had the opportunity to capture it in its natural habitat.

A rare sighting that would not have been possible had it not been for all those who have ventured before me. 

Thank you for you sacrifice!!

Looks like you've got some sanding and/or metal grinding in your future.

Good snagless handles cost a few dollars extra, but they're well worth it.

I gotta say, I love the look of the snagless handles, but they don't make me happy when flying. I find myself avoiding them in my bag...the weight or balence just feels wrong.

We talk about OPK and handles are a case when OPK can help you know what you like. However, before sure to ask what exactly it is you are using...I flew with OPK snagless handles before buying but it seems that there were not the same manufacturer. :(

I've got maybe 20 hours on my converted snagless handles and can't tell a difference now. I've not snagged since the conversion and have yet to do the tops!!

I'm pretty partial to the Freilein 15" snagless but I really don't mind converted Rev handles, snagless Rev Handles or similar as long as they don't come across as too short, too straight or unequal to the other..

I just did my first snagless conversion, and I wanted to thank everyone for warning me about "the burr"!  I was able to heat the end caps with hot water and pull them off, rather than push.  I could see the protrusion caused by the burr under the cap and avoided it easily.  Had I never heard of the burr... >shudder<

Thanks all!
