Sailing with the One-touch Handle is just such a pleasure! Afterall, the two things you use to control the boat are the helm and the sheets. Why struggle with an outdated release mechanism and a clumbsy old fashioned winch handle. It's time to upgrade to a one-touch. We guarantee you will never go back to your old ways again.
Here's what makes this winch handle better:
Light-weight composite construction
Smooth as silk release mechanism
Grab handle to release and attach
The handle of your old “square-plate” locking style is prone to jamming, usually at the most inopportune times. One-touch handles have removed the #@$% square plate and works effortlessly every time! So, for less than a hundred bucks you can greatly improve your sailing experience.
Available in two models:
(This Item) OneTouch Palm Grip handle: This is the flagship Dax OneTouch handle featuring the large orange Palm Grip. Designed for fast trimming with two hands or on boat with higher sail loads. The Palm Grip also is particularly handy when doing fine trim.
(Item WH03) OneTouch Standard Grip handle: Same great OneTouch handle, but uses a standard hand grip configuration (no large orange Palm Grip top). This is a great handle for general cruising, or on boats where sail loads are not that high (perfect for J 24's for example). Also a good choice for use racing in 'pit' positions where the user is typically grinding from a position level with, or below, the winch.
