Re: Q-powerline suppliers in EU

I appreciate the effort on the test.

But it seems to me you have simply demonstrated it is not a good idea to create a loop in stranded line with a knot.

Re: Click bar, small problem, check yours.

I believe the y adapter wear was fixed with the 2018 bar. I have not noticed any wear at that point. When I first got the click bar I wasn’t happy because I too thought the depower rope was sticky. But after a couple of weeks, it was a none issue. I think the pu cover becomes a bit less gummy and yo...

Thanks for checking your numbers. Good to have the measurements for new lines.

Re: Click bar, small problem, check yours.

I've got two click bars and I don't spend any more time maintaining them then other bars. Having no dangling parts is a real joy. The click adjustment works well. I don't think I could go back to a normal bar. I was concerned about wear of the lines through the bar but it has been a non issue. The i...

Re: North Clickbar's front and back line lengths (when replacing lines)?

Evan lists 19.75m (front) and 11.45m (rear) I assume there is a typo here You must have read that wrong, I did type: 11.45m powerlines 19.75m steering lines :wink: for 22m they use 2m extensions, at least on the new 2018 bar I had to take my measurements from. Getting precise measurements on lines ...

Re: North Clickbar's front and back line lengths (when replacing lines)?

I've used q powerline pro in the past It does stretch, especially when new. I don't believe it is pre stretched. I had some red, white, and blue lines that I bought out of Australia as I remember and they lasted forever. I stopped using them because I ended up with a bar with a single line flag out ...

Re: North Clickbar's front and back line lengths (when replacing lines)?

good discussion here As a point of reference i have two 2018 click bars I bought one in the fall of 2017 and one in the winter of 2018. I use the earlier bar almost exclusively during for a year. Fall 2018 rolls around and I notice that the older bars lines have faded and are getting a bit fuzzy nea...

Re: North Clickbar's front and back line lengths (when replacing lines)?

But note, it doesn’t matter. Because all of the lines have changed, including the leader lines. So if you had lines made to the original length, it wont go back to the new configuration of front and back lines of the same length at full power. Changed, compared to what? These are the lengths and pr...

I tried to get North to tell me the line lengths but I could never get an answer. But note, it doesn’t matter. Because all of the lines have changed, including the leader lines. So if you had lines made to the original length, it wont go back to the new configuration of front and back lines of the s...

Re: Dakine 2018 Fusion Review?

They make that, but it is marketed towards windsurfing, Dakine calls it the reflex harness, it used to be called the speed seat. I've used the Vega which is a pretty minimal seat harness. I used that with the ill fated first generation Dakine rope slider bar which would come unhooked all the time. ...
