    I was up at the dealer today and he had a demo sitting there with the new controls. Its like a bike steering wheel and the handles are heat and pressure sensitive, so no more safety handles to hold. I thought it was kind of cool but I guess they have not even started production on them yet.

    new super v controls. I dont' like them. I think they are uncomfortable, awkward and i really think they are a safety issue.

    We'll see.

    ya I didnt really test it just kind of played with the control. I thought it was kinda cool but I dont think I would like to use it all day. I also wonder how long those sensors and crap will last in those grips.

    I've only driven it once but I liked it better than anything else I've used recently and cant wait till I get em in. I loathe pistol grip anything.

    i played around with one of them at my dealer, and i thought they were very nice, really easy to use and dont seem like they'd beat you up mowing all day, very intuitive. saying that, i will say i havent had the chance to actually cut with one, but a guy said the thing was amazing on side hilling.

    i tried one out at the dealer a couple weeks ago outside on the drive. they steer pretty good. they would come in handy for going around trees and and bushes as your hands will be more protected. You can also one hand the control too. I think it steers like a bicycle does.

    but i still prefer the pistol grips better.
