Hey,
Did anyone manage to put duotone's chickenloop through the small loop? With long rope at first it didn't go, but after attaching to the ring, the line stretched and now it is easy to attach. I am not sure if this small one would stretch or should I exchange it for something longer.
I originally bought the surf bar and wanted to hook my North chicken loop to the small loop. Had to work hard to get it in there and I hung on it for a while, but there's no way it would reliably emergency release being that tight. I sent the spreader bar back and got the hook model instead.
I'm curious about this as well with an Ozone loop which is blocky. I was thinking if needed I'd add a SS ring to the small loop as well, wouldn't that work? Don't have mine yet.
Yeah, that was my first thought as well, but I've always used a hook system and wasn't sure if I'd like a non hook setup,so I opted to go with the hook bar. I figure I can add a piece of dyneema to this one easier than I can add a hook later to the other one.

I am also curious as @ichabod and others if the hook version can be easily converted to slider rope(and vice versa). From @tkaraszewski 's pictures it is clearly visible that bar disassembles really easy and ropes are attached pretty straight forward. Can anyone owning the hook version show how the hook is attached from the inside and if the bar has the same inner parts? The top part and the winged pad seem exactly the same.
I am considering buying the hooked version and ordering separately replacement slider rope kit(~15 euro). Also about the sizing - I use M clickerbar 4.0 with Ride Engine S, so I plan going to 28cm stealth, anyone gone through similar change?

The sliding rope can be added to the fixed hook spreader bar but the hook cannot be removed as it is part of the spreader bar, so if you think you may want both options buy the fixed hook.
I used to use both a hook and sliding rope on my Dynabar and it worked fine, just make sure the rope is above the fixed hook so it doesn't get caught up.

Actually one can remove the hook easily and add the long sliding rope as can be seen from this video:
There is no attachment points for the short rope though. But I guess one have to machine out a curved metal plank with holes similar to what we see on the pictures.
