OR Shift reset issue

Postby jannik » Mon Mar 23, 2020 8:58 pm

I did some fooling around on land today and I released my Ocean Rodeo Shift bar a few times and had issues resetting it. It has one front line going all the way through the center of the release to the leash attachment ring. Pretty standard I guess.

The ring is attached to at pigtail which is again attached to the actual front line. This line connection creates a bulge which is very hard to pull back through the center of the release. To the point where I can't do it by hand. That will of cause make the lines uneven. Has anyone had the same issue and maybe found a solution?

Thanks.

I rigged the bar up to the playhouse in the garden and pulled the flag line in and out a few times. It quickly became much easier so there is no issue with the bar in that regard (now).
It just shows how important it is the try the release out in controlled conditions.
