Thread: Wa handles-to taper or not to taper?

    Wa handles-to taper or not to taper?

    Does the tapering most wa handles have serve any purpose beyond apperance?
    Rule #1- Don't sweat the small s%&t, rule #2- It's ALL small s%&t

    The obvious answer is that it helps maintain a grip when the handle gets slippery. Other that that, I'll leave to the experts.

    It just looks cooler, and that's enough for me. Unless you want a slightly narrower grip but want to balance weight toward the end.

    I find a taper to be necessary with handles, in terms of comfort. If there isn't a taper, then the handles feel bulky and clumsy.

    Yeah I'd say it's pretty useful because it makes the handle a little more comfortable. It also sort of looks wrong if there's no taper
