    Yes, push-rock which I believe is the original. The MPD's are right angle. I wish everybody considering hand controls could/would try the Suregrips. I'm convinced the majority would choose it over...

    I'm the same way, but they still only last about 3 years ('96 Grand Voyager and on 5th battery). I probably have a slow drain.
