what are your opinions? I'm gettin a 394 here shortly with no handlebar. I know you guys are gunna ask what I will be using the saw for..... It depends on how much I like it. Lol. Is it really worth 100-115 plus shipping for the full wrap? This price was for OEM, aftermarket, and used, not much difference in price. I can get an AM half wrap for 30 and that's a new one.

Full wrap. The price would be with it to me if its a saw you wanna use on a regular basis. I couldn't imagine ever having a half wrap again. But different strokes for different folks I guess.

I've been kinda leanin toward the full wrap. I can get a new oem one from eBay for 100 or a pro safety for another 15 plus shipping. Any preference?

Do the 394 use a plastic handle or steel? Just out of curiosity I have never held one or seen one up close

I'm assuming it's steel but husky did some plastic handles on stuff for awhile if I remember right.

Full wrap, adds a little more weight to the saw but, makes the saw more maneuverable as they are somewhat awkward (big and heavy to what I'm use to)
Also makes it look cooler.

I'd go with the Pro Safety. It's a larger diameter tube and thicker rubber grip, so it fits much better in your hands. You won't regret it. Sometimes I see brand new ones on eBay for less than $100.

I have 3 Pro Safety wraps, 288, 395, and 2100.

If you plan on alaskan milling or stumping go half wrap. I have an AM half wrap on one and it's a solid bar. That being said the one that's not on a mill, I'm going to put a ProSafety on it. Full wrap is nice with a longer bar, heavy saw.

I like the wrap even on a milling saw. When you lay them down running between cuts the wrap keeps from setting the leaves on fire.

Full wrap.

Love my 372 XPW! I don't the right side grip every time, but when I do, I'm glad it's there. Funny thing is, I bought the XPW just for the slightly bigger displacement and was indifferent to the wrap. I've come to really like it though.
