    Nice farmers handles!

    I really like the ones made out of pipe; might take some time to get them to have a good grip though since the paint can be slick.

    Get a can of spray on Truck Bed Liner to spray the handles with. It'll cost you about 5 bucks and when dried it'll be like a rubberized coat on the handles.

    You can do what Travis said if you are looking for training handles. If you want to emulate strongman competition, I would honestly just leave them outside for a few days and once they weather a little bit the grip will improve. Brand new handles are always tougher than the ones with a little bit or "character" or rust on them.

    Either way you should be fine with those, it will just build your grip that much stronger if they are slick

    Or wrap them in the stuff they wrap tennis racket handles with. You can get that at any sports store...hell, even walmart.
