Core Kite Stopper Ball

Postby tanre » Wed Jun 08, 2016 3:10 am

Hey all, I have been trying for some time to get my hands on a stopper ball for the Core Sensor bars. Core used to make them years ago and now wont because they consider it a liability.

I have tried making my own (unsuccessful).

Does anyone have a stopper ball, or the technical know-how to make one? BTW, this is the stopper ball for the bar to have pressure on it without sheeting out. They make something called a “stopper ball”, but its just a ball stop on the end of a line.

If so, PLEASE email me at tndash8@aol.com

Been trying for at least 2 years to find one…also tried 3-4 other makes of stopper balls, but they didn’t work.
Thanks so much.

I think Core has similar bar depower line setup like Flysurfer infinity 2? Then check Flysurfer online shop

http://shop.flysurfer.com/depower-stopperkugel.html

Just from my memory, FS depower line is 4mm(?) and it goes twice through stopper ball on infinity 2 bar so hole size would be about 8mm?

(I after reply read that you have tried 4 makes of stopper balls but I still leave my reply as I don't know if you tried FS one)

assuming that you need it for old-skool tricks, there is also an easy to implement "suicidal" solution of adding a windsurfing harness line to a bar
http://www.windance.com/Chinook-Adjust-Harness-Lines-WSHL2304/?gclid=CIyZmfD6mM0CFQepaQodwbkPVA
you would need ~26" one..
The bonus is that you get an autopilot (you can make the kite move, while hooked, by experimenting with attachment points)
here is the guy showing it for deadman:


Once again, note the "suicidal" part...

Look at the sliding stopper from North
They do not use a ball and it is red on their website picture
The stopper has 2 separate holes and when you slide it down it tighten ups to stop the bar from going up

Scroll down on their site to the bar Vario Cleat and sliding stopper

I hope it works for you

Would this work for you?

If you need something specific I can 3d print something out for you, but you would need to draw up a rough sketch with dimensions.
