WOO consistency

I want to be clear that my post is not about WOO accuracy. It is about WOO consistency. I dont care if it measures 3 FT high or low (OK high is better :-)) I have used the WOO 2 & 3. I have worked in industries where judging distances is important. I should be reasonably capable of judging distances...

Re: Best source for Q-powerline pro

I got a spool from https://www.murrays.com/product/61-0276/ I don't know if the wind of change Q line is regular or pro, and never got an answer back. There were a couple other places that had it for about the same price - I think Murrays at the time was the lowest including 9 bucks shipping. Thank...

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

Very similar to what I did, though I didn't make the insert slug long enough, as purposeful destructive testing shows. I broke it over my leg by pushing hard on the ends. Don't try to ride unhooked. :D Interesting How long was your plug? How did you make the plug? Mine was in a 22/20mm tube I slid ...

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

I made this bar for Cloud kites. Clouds only need 28 inches of throw to completely depower. It does not need to have a qr to release it to a leash. My goal was to reach peak minimalism. I am close. 25od/22id carbon tube. Same length as the Cloud CCS bar 22od/22Id 30 cm tube filled with epoxy and 10%...

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

PU hoses need to fit very tightly over the inner rope, I even prefer to force it over the spliced on the end to prevent sand and dirt creeping inside the tube. This way the PU wears down with the rope inside untouched. All the problems with PU comes from lazy design and manufacturing where they fit...

I finished my frankenbar. 433 g total with 23M sk99 lines.
Now to test it in controlled conditions.
Do you know how much the SK99 lines weighed by themselves? I have bee trying to find specifications on the weight of SK99 line, but so far no luck.

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

If going minimalist and light weight, better with hole through the bar. This is one I made for a local kiter, some reinforcement around center hole, graphite/epoxy coating for low friction. I also reinforced my own and it’s holding up fine. I have been making a few bars with 55CM 22/25mm, with a 30...

Re: Stainless steel pins used in leash quick release

The black handle appears to be made out of some sort of composite or plastic material. I had a French friend look at it and he said they did not specify the material.

WTF!!!
LOL

It does look to be similar to the quick release handle on my bike post. I will have to look closer when I get home.
