    No such things as bad days, just bad moments
    They look OK but can whatever metal they're made of take the weight of amp moving it from place to place? I only think such a thing because during the first ten or so years of having my 700B, it was a PA amp and got hauled around quite a bit. Quite often, I carried it by only one handle and although it never did, the thought occurred of if that handle snapped off we would probably be PA-less for whatever gig we were doing.

    I respect your opinion. They don't look correct but they are actually better quality and build. We all know Bob built on a budget. These are heavier duty and have an improved base. Still love the original look but if you are faced with bolts or this..

    The handles can be made of titanium or unobtainium, don't Matter, its in the bolts or screws you use to attach them. Thats the weak link. If you are happy with drawer pulls, thats cool. I do alot of different (read crazy) shit. I once made a backlane out of a piece of toast that looked like jesus. It was noisy, but brought me good luck.
    I had the nations problems figured out one night while on blah blah blah........ huh?

    You are correct. Screws are the weak point along with the metal composite. Stainless screws for me....originals are good nuff but...
