Well, I pulled the trigger on the 12t electric Venom, arrived today, gave it a few test rings, good bit of kit, but the two handed safety feature was annoying me, especially when using it horizontally, so after a bit of looking at, came up with the idea of a couple of M10 x 70mm rawl bolts down the end of the control levers connected together with a bit of galv tubing crimped flat at either end & drilled, to connect the two. Job's a good un, just have to see if the mod will stand a good bit of use & abuse. The easiest way would have been to remove the whole 2 handed gubbins & put it back to a single lever spool, but couldn't find the right parts it the UK & would have worked out to over £30 from the US with import duty etc.

I should get round to doing mine, but my quick fix of an ad blue spout with a bit of rope through the middle tied around the handles has been working really well! It also seems to be ergonomically perfect for my hand
