Core sensor 2 bar depower line wear and tear

Postby Turbaani » Sun Jul 19, 2020 8:31 am

I've got a core sensor bar 2.
The depower and safety lines go thru the bar from different holes, and they seem to have alot of friction.

Bar is very little used, and already the lines are getting weared down. What can I do? Wax the lines?
All help is appreciated!

Aren’t those lines covered with that plastic sheath?

I’ve got two sensors and had a pro that I lost and never noticed any additional wear on that spot.

yes.. wax them, wash/dry them after each session.. do not use auto untwist.. change often..\
they never lasted over 3 months for me.
Believe it or not, I actually prefer them to the plastic ones in the next versions:
- you can clearly see wear (the plastic one snapped on me twice w/o any visible wear on the plastic)
-they are easier / cheaper to change (you can usually reuse the long one, cutting the shorter one from the side that is not worn
-they do not jam in the rotator tube as easy as the plastic ones
-they do not become stiff in cold weather (plastic one, becomes so stiff it may not flag in some situations..
-they wrap up much nicer..

Thanks for tip. I tried candle wax, maybe it got better, but I need some wax that has more lubricant effect. Any ideas?

Yeah that version of the bar bar did wear the depower lines relatively quickly. Really does help to wash it thoroughly in fresh water after each session, especially if you are kiting from a sandy beach. Still, it's no problem to replace them.
