Re: Control Bar-Stick Only

You can get carbon tubes on Amazon, Ebay or Aliexpress. If you are into DIY you can figure out how to make your own. Plenty info on this forum. Just did one for foiling use only. You might be better off asking your friends for an old bar that you can use for your tinkering. Many of us long time kite...

Re: Links to modify Cabrinha recoil overdrive bars

I use a pretty thin wire, folded up and push it up to the point where I need to grab the other tail and then pull it back into it. Not difficult. Cost a few bucks. Much better than the hidden line inside the tube that you can never see if it is wearing due to sand entry. Just my take. Easy conversio...

Re: Links to modify Cabrinha recoil overdrive bars

One of the 1/8 is is run into the other 1/8 to make a 1/4" single line leading to the cleat. The other one is a safety line running up to one of the front lines.

Re: Links to modify Cabrinha recoil overdrive bars

I simply remove all the tubes and use 1/8" spectra for depower rope. Then mound a cam cleat and line spreader for your depower/trimming. Pretty simple mod. I found a picture of a setup with a fireball release. It's the same spinner top as on the regular QR. You can see what I added. Here I used a ol...

Re: Custom made quick release

Why outside line trim? Keep it simple and just use a trim cleat if you don't like the just rope adjuster on the KISS bar. As for the line bracket with flag line safety, I use a small nylon block and drill holes small enough to fit the fly lines through so I can loop on the flag line. Very simple to ...

Re: Solution to WOO pin oxidation?

I soldered some tin on pins using soldering iron. Woo should have hermetic case that charges wirelessly like plenty devices these days. They wouldn’t even have to include any charger as many people already have them Thanks for this tip. Do you do the soldering right away or after it oxidized a litt...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 5 is here

Looping for water start is the solution! Worked like a charm yesterday. Not by all means an epic session, but it forced me to practice the loop water start. I was out between 4-5:30pm and wind was 8-13mph. See the attached wind chart.

Re: Epoxy and UV Protection Coat on Carbon Board

I've opted to go with a SprayMax Clear Glam 2K spray. Expensive but should provide a way more scratch resistant surface then epoxy.

Re: Control bar end 3D printer file needed

All good ideas so far. I did manage to calculate % of the original and it will probably work. Just thought maybe someone has another version handy. Maybe even a bit less material so print job would be smaller and result in less weight. If no one has better files, I'll try these I guess. BTW: How did...

Re: Control bar end 3D printer file needed

I used pvc elbow pieces from Amazon. It should fit a 20mm internal diameter bar with a bit of sanding. A bit ugly, but worked ok for me. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B08798RQZF?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title Did you use them to attach the leader lines to as well, or just as line winders?
