Shape of jigsaw

I've got the Festool Carvex barrel grip and love it. Truthfully I had the Bosch AVS Top handle and an older B&D top handle before that. I really like the barrel grip but it does take a little getting used to. And you can use it upside down comfortably.

I've had the Bosch barrel (body) grip for many years and it's really the only jigsaw I use anymore unless there is limited space for turning. It's much more comfortable to grip IMO and the control is way better even allowing scroll cuts that just aren't possible with a top handle.

Barrel grip anytime.

Altho the top handle grip is used alot more in Belgium.  But if we get a new customer in our store and e let them try out the 2 different handles they'll almost always prefer the Barrel grip.


Much more control over the Jigsaw and works better upside down.

The new 18V Barrel grip Brushless jigsaw by Makita has sold very wel already :)
