Interesting concept.
Have you experimented to find the optimum length of the ‘splice’, in terms of line diameter?
Too long -> too much friction to operate
Too short -> likely to slip

Re: New type of bar?

If you use an SS eyebolt (as shown in the 1st post) you only have to make a small diameter hole (6 or 8mm) in one side of the bar. An advantage is for one handed kiting, the eyebolt can go between 1st & 2nd fingers and prevent finger abrasion from the center lines. Also if the eye bolt is screwed in...

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

Bar ends are also important to me, still brainstorming about it. My favorite is this one: I'd like to skip drilling the tube and inserting hard CF tubes in it at an angle. I think of elements retractable in the bar, but I like the bar plugs and i...

Re: Best Foil for Absolute Beginner?

Ive heard large/ slow foil and large, thick, floaty surfboard? Should I try and construct this myself or does someone make such a beast? Ideally I would like to get one from due to the cheap pricing, the fact that I may not want to stick with it for too long and the shallow reef which w...

Re: Slingshot bar on Fone Bandit?

I’ve been flying Bandits for years with various different types of low Y bars, with single front line flag (currently using Ozone contacts). Kites fly fine, even on long (27m) lines.
