Any concern on the small bury length in splices coming from the attachment point on the slider rope?

If your referring to me lovethepirk, mine has been stitched & has been in use for about 6 months with no issues.

If you look back through the thread I've posted extensive info on their use.

I know :thumb:

Just thought I'd bring attention to them again. I'm using one and it's brilliant.

I think the low friction ring would be the best option as you would get some friction but in a smooth action.
It takes some time to get a feel for the pulley as there's no friction. I've been using it for quite a few seasions now, so feels natural to me.

What does "ATM" mean here ?

Atm, at the moment.
I was too lazy & then the autocorrect on my phone put it into capitals.

I just got myself a low friction ring (ronstan) - going to set it up when I get time. Also have a new OR bar with soft ends - thanks to EastCC.
