For the upcoming surf season, I'd like to make a sliding bar (usual concept: dyneema rope, sliding stainless steel ring that I hook into with my north chicken loop).
My question here to the ones who have actual experience with the setup:
Is there a tangling risk / potential other problem if I don't remove the hook (I'm using a dakine harness).
In theory, if the rope is tight enough not to slide over the hook, and as the pull comes from above the bar, there should never be a problem.
But then, I also know that when pushing things in the waves, I'll end up in the washing machine sure enough some times
, with pull potentially from wherever....
So is removing the hook a must? (would be a pitty, I'd like to keep the fixed hook for unhooking)
