Evan - just received my QR and micro leash. It’s a fantastic bit of design and build quality!

I did forget to order the depower ring set. I have 5mm depower line. What ring set do you recommend?

Also, does the micro leash easily switch between bars or should I order separate leash for my second bar? So I can just attach the pin side to each depower line.

Nice looking setup. Do they offer an on the fly depower option? Where I foil I need to be able to trim on the water.

As easy as a loop around a small ring. Two leashes would safe you 5 seconds. Unless you keep forgetting your leash on your other bar and have to walk back to the car like some idiot has been doing all week. :roll:

Just curious what most are doing with the Seatbelt QR to keep it far enough away from the spreader bar? Seems to me if it is running along a typical rope slider spreader bar, the bar would be uncomfortably close, resulting in riding with T-Rex like bent arms. I think too much emphasis has been put on bringing the bar in close. Most conventional qrs and chicken loops put the bar about 8 inches out from the hook or rope. Going to a setup that's only three or so inches is quite a change and I'm not sure it's always for the best. Of course arm length is a huge variable but let's say this involves an average size rider. I know, what's average?
Several have mentioned just setting the trim up so that the front lines are slightly longer so that you hold the bar at a comfortable distance, but can oversheet the bar if you want to. An alternative is to lengthen below the bar:

4mm is fine for most riders up to 80kg or not riding powered, saves only a few gram so up to you. They can deform when loaded beyond 250kg and I still need a rider that can deform the 5mm one.

Trying this out as slider on rope.
It is a harken low friction ring (7mm ID I think) with a stainless 3/16 fender washer in each side

Smaller diameter fender washer would give better clearance to bar, but this size makes it almost impossible for rope to jam (we will see ...)

Best to use a countersunk shackle bolt - one less sticky outy thing for rope to get snagged on.

And rather than using washers as spacers it would be better to simply close up the shackle a little.

Why are you using a roller in the first place? I just have the version with the fixed closed ring and it slides very smooth on a rope bar. I may have to replace the rope eventually, but I'm pretty sure that will take a very long time and is cheap.

Is there a performance benefit, I'm not noticing any drag or hanging without the roller at all.

This is the best system I've used so far. I had to pull the safety yesterday (started nuking, foil kite started to collapse on one side) and it's al lot easier than my old CL. At first I thought it did not release because I did not feel it jerk as much as a chicken loop would, but then I saw the kite harmonica. I cannot tell you how happy I am with this system. It makes sheeting in better for me, toeside is easier, release is better, packing the bar is easier,

I hope in a few years all brands will go to a similar system, and it will safe some cost when buying a bar because you don't need a QR for every bar you own or replace.
