Sole Handplanes introduced our Summer 2016 line at the Boardroom Show in Del Mar, California. Industry feedback was super positive as was the response from the attendees. We’ve brought back the Woodies and the Pintail model, both with a new look and new materials. We have also upgraded the Whomper! You’ll notice in the new look line that we have replaced the foam core with a cork core. Not only is the cork stronger, it’s a renewable resource.
The Pintail is the shape that started it all. New for 2016 is added length that will come in handy for those small mushy days. But we’ve also found that the added surface area increases lift and works well on those big days when you need more glide early on take-offs. The Pintail is part of the Woodie Series, available in a sweet Chestnut with a printed two-tone stringer. SHOP
Available now as a Woodie, our most popular plane is sure to be even more so. Same great performance in an awesome new look! All of our planes are made in California, supporting local people and local business. SHOP
Cork is good! The awesomeness of cork means the new Whomper is lighter and more flexible, reducing arm fatigue and strain. The cork gives the top surface a natural non-slip grip. And cork is a renewable resource. All are great reasons to get your hand on a Whomper! SHOP
