Normally if you lack feel on a dagger grip it's because you are not far enough outboard, the extension being infront of you creates less angle to the tiller.

It is a bit of a learned skill, I have definitely got better at doing other stuff with my tiller hand whilst not wiggling the tiller.
Let's not forget that when it's light and we are sat in we should be weight steering more than stick steering.

Twin wire boat and a dagger grip is a recipe for much swimming.

Hold it like you would a sword and sheet across you body. There is no earthly way you'll be able to dagger grip without poking your crews eye out if the extension is anywhere near long enough.

Dagger grip is fine once your sitting out in a hiking dinghy, and is my preference. When i'm sitting in I probably use whichever grip is convenient at the time. It's a bit clumsy sheeting in and out with the old school frying pan style grip, but most of the ageing rockstars from the 70's and 80's seem to manage ok with it.

Clearly the 'old fashioned' panhandle grip is faster  Wink
