Would like to replace the handle on a brick trowel from wood to durasoft.

Had anyone done this before?

Looking for some advice or info??

its just a tool

Extra comfort i was thinking. Had a look on MT website i think I'd only be able to swap for a plastic handles.

Do you think it's worth swapping wooden handle for plastic?

Thanks for reply.

Have a good xmas.

As LLL says: it's just a tool. I also can't see the point  :O

Kami I used wooden handles for years with no problems,the only reason I use durasoft now is that is what is commonly available
leather MT are a bit snazzier  and pricier,but its the balance and weight  that you buy MT for
my 19-10 canadian pattern trowel  is down to around 19-7.5 now ,I was hoping it would see me out,but I can still out lay young frank 2:1 and he has a 19:11
have fun yourself
