Re: Fill center of carbon bar with epoxy

It roughs itself back up after a few sessions and eventually you grind through the bar itself making the edges of the carbon razor sharp. Went through multiple pu covered depower cord a year with bare carbon and i did my best to keep it smooth with rounded edges. Now with a plastic insert I am still...

Re: 32" Mast vs. 36" Mast ; Which is Better?

A 81.26cm or 91.44cm mast :D Sorry, needed to make that conversion to get a sense of metric sizes. But if it is really choppy you can use every bit of length you can get. The only advantages of shorter masts i know of are starting in shallower waters, less severe crashes (although you can argue if t...

Re: Fill center of carbon bar with epoxy

Pipe insulation foam. Packed tight enough will be even airtight.

But I stopped with this because eventually you wear through the bar eating away your depower cord or even break the bar when you grind through the carbon.

Re: new failure mode: micro leash got hooked on bar end

Added pictures to the original post. The thing that increases the chance of problems is that the leash connection point is not at the same area as the main quick release. The risk would be much lower or even nonexistent with the Infexion setup (pictured below) . (I didn't like how the secondary rel...

Re: Infexion Seatbelt Quick Release

Hi Evan, Why is this better than the original version of attaching the flagaut line? It seems pefectly fine to me the way it was, or am i missing something? Thanks! Whit some the line can get jammed between the Swivel and claws making the unloaded opening a bit harder. With the new way this can not...

Re: Infexion Seatbelt Quick Release

How is the flagout line anchored inside the QR? I removed the flagout line from the QR to measure the rope length but now don't remember how it was attached ... Discovered a new way for the flagout recently. You loop it around the claw closest to the hole it goes through. It also functions as a sto...

Re: DIY depower rope?

Slingshot needs a quite particular thickness of line otherwise the 55cm ling thicker spliced part won't fit into the chickenloop opening. The original is already a really tight fit and a struggle to get in place, anything thicker and it won't fit at all so it needs a bit of research and fiddling to ...
