/ DMM Venoms- Can you fit a grivel horn or similar for hand rest?
Has anyone out there got DMM Venoms that they have fitted out with the hand rest at the base of shaft? Is it an easy job or will I need help?
Hi, I fitted a couple of jubilee clips to mine, padded out with something (I can't remember what) and a load of tape on top.
Did the job for a tiny fraction of the price, still a bit crap mind you.
Something like this might also work...
Not entirely relevant but I fit grivel trig rests to my dmm aliens without a lot of drama. Not sure whether the venoms are different diameter?
I think needlesports has a list of what can be retrofitted to what. If it's not on the list, then they can usually tell you over the phone.
Petzl Trigrests fit, if you don't use the rotating clamp thing. And you might need to take off some of the grip rubber from the shaft.
