I just got a Light Monkey 21 watt HID. It came with a standard Goodman handle, but I find that these are typically too big for my hand, even when taken all the way up. I have asked my LDS to order me a soft handle next time they make an order, but not to make a special order just for that. In the mean time, I need to find a way to get the Goodman handle to fit me a little better. I was thinking of maybe using some duck tape to make the fit a little more snug. Any suggestions?
This is one of my BIG wishes, is handles for lights and reels that fit OUR hands.
I agree 100%. That is 1 reason I like the soft elastic handles that are adjustable. My reels (Dive Rites) also have adjustable handles that I shortened. Kind of a pain, though as you have to loosen a couple of bolts to do it, X 4-5 reels.
Except on the size of a 21 watt HID the soft handle might be a little too floppy. I thought I had one as I got one when I bought my light used. I looked though and it wasn't in the case anymore. I probably threw it away or I would have sent it to you to use.
