Just measured mine. Throw is 18in. To compare, my clickbar is 24in. It's a short throw.
45.7cm is quite short, 61cm is more like it indeed.

Sorry, still can't wrap my head around imperial measurement. always need a converion :lol:

Re: Infexion Max bar / Seatbelt Quick Release

Haha yes, going offtopic again :) Dyneema on metal will wear the power line faster is my observation. Also my rope solution is a bit shorter and easier to implement on the different bar versions I am offering with less different parts. See the pics of the mod on page 11 Warning, with this setup the ...

Re: Pretty radical now

Crazy what they are pulling off already! Curious how many masts he has broken until now, can imagine the forces of impact are much higher on those enormous wings and you are not allowed to jump on your moses race foil anymore... "Micro fractures on the mast caused by accidental collisions or by free...

Re: Infexion Max bar / Seatbelt Quick Release

I have not much experience with brummels, normal splice is faster and stronger to make if you have a sewing machine at hand.
But is doesn't need to be a single piece, it just make the setup much cleaner and shorter.

Re: Simple short line extensions - is a figure-8 knot ok?

Also, the normal tendency is for the front lines to stretch over time relative to the back lines. Is everything brand new? Correction: All 4 lines shrink over time, but the unloaded back lines shrink more. This gives the same effect, but the cause is fundamentally different. A simple solution to ad...

Re: Mach flott den Schrott: Good ideas for self made bars

Isn't it also better to have the line organizer fail instead of the power line? If the power line is still ok you can flagout without problems.

Re: Infexion Max bar / Seatbelt Quick Release

Maybe we should start a separate topic about custom line organizers... The small steel ring Flysurfer and sk shapes is using is still a point of wear on the power line itself, as will always be when you use steel rubbing against Dyneema combined with sand. Hope you can see it better on the pictures ...

Re: Infexion Max bar / Seatbelt Quick Release

It's just a piece of rope with two loops spliced into it but making the second one interlocking before splicing. It relies on the tension in the power lines to pull everything tight, but it doesn't lock itself around the power line so it still flags without issue. The loop in the flagout line that c...

Re: Duotone 2021

It allows you to add line extensions neatly below the pigtails - Also if pigtails become worn they can be replaced. Possibly the most important thing though, line breaks always seem to occur just below the pigtails on the current trust bar, the line seems to get weak there where it enters the sleev...

Re: Slingshot Comp Stick Safety Fail

just do the test as above, use a new line like I did, one end fixed on a solid object, the other end wrapped around a lump hammer shaft, use just one arm to snatch back hard, 300kg new line, snaps easily. Really curious about what type of line it was then as I am not able to reproduce it on the lin...
