    Powerblock handles

    I have an older set of Powerblock Pro Rexan dumbbells. I’m having a problem with the foam handles twisting. It’s like they’ve loosened up over time and I’m having a hard time gripping them on heavy lifts. Has anyone dealt with this problem or have any solutions? The company has a replacement handle (USA Elite) and I’ve also looked into custom stainless steel knurled handles for $205. What does everyone think?

    I was considering replacing mine one time too, but the sad thing is mine were new powerblock pro steel knurled handles to begin with but they were a let down. Knurling felt chromed over and kind of slick on the hands especially when sweaty, the knurl was useless as it had almost no bite. I wound up abandoning the replacement project and just taped them over.

    I was thinking about just cutting the foam handles and taping mine with grip tape for a tennis racket. What kind of tape did you use?
