Replacement for black wheels on handle

Picture of

I decided to make a comfort handle for my TNKIT round 2 entry, but I don't have any of those black wheels. I discovered you could do the same thing with green/black knex knobs. I have about 5 of these, and they make really comfy handles.

Isn't that what we have all been doing?

?

I_am_Canadian (author)DJ Radio2009-09-09

I've been doing that for ages.

DJ Radio (author)I_am_Canadian2009-09-09

Well do you really expect me to know what you do?

I_am_Canadian (author)DJ Radio2009-09-09

Nay, but I have been doing it, I've seen others doing it, and I just thought its what we've all been doing if we don't have the black wheels.

Sorry, but even connectors on a handle's white rods are better. These stick out too much.

I find that Zak's connectors on a handle bend the connectors too much.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-09-04

You don't have to bend them. That's just how he does it.

DJ Radio (author)travw2009-09-04

post your method.

DJ Radio (author)travw2009-09-05

And you expect me to have ball joint sockets? I dont have any of that.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-09-05

You can get around it.

DJ Radio (author)travw2009-09-05

I think my method seems just as good. The knobs are the same thickness as dutchj's method.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-09-06

Ok, whatever. It's all a matter of opinion. I think more people share my opinion though...

Where do my connectors on a handle bend?

DJ Radio (author)Knarez2009-09-04

I see some of that on your guns. Look on your ZKAR v2 instructions, I see it right there.

Knarez (author)DJ Radio2009-09-04

Oh that lol... Go look at my other ones. Its not on those.

DJ Radio (author)Knarez2009-09-04

ok.

Killer~SafeCracker (author)travw2009-09-05

I agree.

The only reason I made this was because I thought it would be a good alternative to black wheels since I had none.

Knarez (author)2009-09-03

Lots of people have tried this, the black wheel's are about 100x better.

DJ Radio (author)Knarez2009-09-04

BTW black wheels seem to dig into your hand more than these knobs.

Knarez (author)DJ Radio2009-09-04

Sept they're comfy... People wouldn't use them if they weren't.

DJ Radio (author)Knarez2009-09-04

The only reason I am not using black wheels is because I dont have any. This tip is for people who do not have black wheels.

DJ Radio (author)Knarez2009-09-04

But I don't have black wheels, so I try this.

ajleece (author)2009-09-04

I double zak. Black wheels are MUCH more cumfy. And They aren't just yellow and black. I have at least a red one.

Fred the Penguin (author)2009-09-04

Ok......I agree with zak on this one even though I only have 2 black wheels
