Vibrations+ grips=sore hands...Help!
I love spending time on the water, but after a couple hours, my hands get kind of sore from all the sub vibrations and shock (not to mention that throttle ache in the webbing between the thumb and index.)
I bought some grips last year through ebay, but they don't absorb shock for long and need to get something more comfortable.
Anyone have clues on what might be better and to give more comfort?
Anything silicone out there?

Jay's right. Water-skiing gloves work great, and you have the full glove or fingerless option. I prefer the full glove with my UMI bars and finger throttle.

I will say that after riding a quad with Flexx bars installed, I will never ride with conventional bars again. The fatigue "arm pump" is greatly lessened with these bars.
