It has a Deep V - EZ Up bridle to steady the ski and to keep it pointing straight ahead. As the skier comes out of the water, the rope automatically rises off the ski. The 12 inch floating handle has a textured TPR grip, aluminum core and molded end caps and finger guards. The 75 foot long, 16-strand rope is UV-treated and has a 1500 lb. tensile strength. For added durability, the EZ Up bridle is completely covered with flexible vinyl. A rope keeper is included for tangle-free storage.
