Out of interest, how did you rinse it? Under a running tap or into a bowl of water? I assume gentle rinse in a bowl of water would be less likely to breach any seals?
Gentle poor of freshwater either from the tap in my campervan or just from a bottle, either way very low pressure.

U.Go line mount on Slingshot lines

Is anyone using the U.Go line mount on Slingshot lines with the standard U.Go locking rod? I’ve had a quick measure of the Slingshot centre lines and they seem thicker than 2mm on one side, and the locking rod seems very tight. I know the whole point of the locking rod is that it “locks” but it seem...

Re: Which bar for petite person / shorter arms

Slingshot offer a smaller chicken loop and with the Sentinel bar you can adjust the location of the cleat. I’ve done this on my girlfriend’s bar so the cleat is closer to the bar.

Re: Ride Engine Size

I would say Medium with 10” bar but I’m in agreement with everyone that for the RE harnesses it is really important to get the right fit.

Re: Slingshot Screamer / Swallow Sizing

I have the Angry Swallow in 5’4 and I’m 6’2 (188cm) and around 94kgs. Due to the width and volume I wouldn’t suggest going for the 5’6. I also use a 5’8 Celeritas and a custom 6’2 board. I’d add 6” to 8” if the Swallow had a full nose.

Advice on Slingshot SST sizing

I'm looking at the Slingshot SST for my new quiver but I'm a bit confused on the sizes so I'm hoping people with experience of the new 2018 or the 2017 model can help out. I weigh between 95 and 100 kgs and use a surfboard and foil board in anything from 12mph to 35+ mph. I currently use North Neos ...
