Gauging interest (CF t2 handle)

I am looking to gauge some interest before I make a run of T2 compatible handles. All plate sections will be made from delrin not aluminum yet, and even the white handles are carbon fiber underneath so they are of the same high quality.

so here is an actual picture of the first prototype



this is a concept of the same thing but with white plates



White carbon with black plates



and finally white carbon white plates

the all-white looks really slick

recommendation: possible compatibility with the new t2 handles with the extra guide coming out of the vertical ASA, unless binding has been adequately eliminated in your design, when using the hitman handle.

I agree with Apoc, a guide rod hole would be good.

I think you would probably be best going with black on black.

well, it's a consideration... not a necessity. Also, a guide rod hole would **** with that slick weight reduction pocket in the back!

Since CCM menioned that the new quad rod design would be compatible with other handles I already have the design ready but I am not going to start production on them until I see a little demand.

Price point would be the same as my other CCM compatible kits at $60. Please note though that this is not a preorder thread and I am just trying to see what kind of interest is out there for these.

as far as correcting the wobble this design does not really eliminate any but since the plates are delrin their is much less tendency to hurt the anno of the upper tube.

If a white with black plate version, tapped for the Quad-rod kit, with Hitman lever was available for $60-70 I would purchase one as soon as you had them available.

If the same one was available, but without the Hitman lever, I would probably pick one up eventually, but it wouldn't be a priority purchase.

If it wasn't set-up for the Quad-rod I probably wouldn't be interested at all.

Since some people don't like the hitman, it should be removable..
