    what do you prefer? finger/thumb?

    what do you guys prefer on your skis/sleds, a finger throttle or thump throttle.

    Im not sure that they offer a twist throttle or not, dont know how that would work out....


    I currently have an aftermarket finger throttle on my jet ski and love it. Been debating doing it to the 96xp as well.

    Had nothing but thumbs ( 7 of them ) till I got my first X last year. Was not sure if I was going to like it, but it has grown on me and I like the finger throttle better.

    then you are only holding on with one side of the grip ...when you case the face of a big wave at speed you will see why i like the finger

    aposable thumb is why we are supieior to animals...we use it to hold on to things

    just my opinion..to each there own

    I have to agree with you on this. However, I have very limited experience with the thumb throttles. All of my skis have had the finger throttle and I feel like I have a better grip this way.

    just rode the ski for the first time with the finger throttle... WAY BETTER way to hard to hold on and control the throttle with a thumb throttle when riding through heavy chop.

    I vote for finger throttle even though I haven't tried it yet in my ski. i have thumb, but I rode my friends Kawi260 with finger and i must admit that it feels way better...If riva was not so pricy I would get one for my ski as well...for now i have to stick to thumb though
