I also bought the Mystic Stealth hook spreader bar and separately purchased a Stealth Bar Dyneema Slider Rope Replacement.

The replacement rope did not include a stainless steel ring so I bought a 25mm diameter ring separately from an online sailing shop (5mm thick stainless steel).

It was pretty simple to fit the rope. Just undo 4 torx screws on the back of the spreader bar to remove the padding, and follow the instructions here : www.mystickiteboarding.com/howto

I'm wondering if there could be some neat way to create the central mini loop when converting from a hook bar by running a continuous loop of dyneema which forms both the main slider plus the mini loop. Would need a knot and something to stop the loop from pulling through the slot.

The added benefit would be that it would use a single knot to form the loop and this could be in front of the bar making it easier to adjust.

Did you remove the hook? Or it stays on? Can one easily remove/add the hook anyway?

I left the hook attached. But the hook can be removed very easily if you don't want it. To remove the hook, you just need to unscrew the 4x torx screws that hold the pad onto the composite material spreader bar. After the pad is removed, the metal hook will then easily slide out from the composite bar. The torx screws have a very fine thread which means that it is slightly fiddly to re-align them through the thick pad when screwing everything back in place... It's not particularly difficult, but it probably took me 5 minutes in total so I intend to leave the hook attached.

What he said. It works with hook and rope at same time. Tried it for 2 sessions in a row without any problems

Ive got the rope model but am looking for the hook to add...anyone got a hook they want to sell on or know where I can get just the hook to add to the stealth bar...Currently I have 2 rings and they run through both ropes ..If the smaller rope pops then I still have the longer rope connected for a secondary safety connection and having 2 rings puts less pressure on the CL in case anyone is worried the CL could split with just using 1 ring...Its perfect on the smaller Duotone CL..but the small rope is wearing fast.

welp.

after ~4 months of moderate use (2 months daily riding..2 months of weekend use)....my slider rope broke for the 1st time (i've used a ride engine rope harness for boosting...and never had a mechanical error)

..i was a little disappointing since i've only foiled since i had it...and almost always embarrassingly underpowered on foil kites. (it broke while on a 3m in sub 20 kts wind)

however i like the design..
i'm think maybe attach 2lines this time (or maybe a line engine line..since it is cheaper and much more durable)

Where did the line break? Center, or where it exists the bar holes, or...?

Thanks much

Two lines sucks. Insert normal thin flying line as core /think splicing/ into the slider line as last resort insurance go home without drama.
