They seem to snap after some good use as I understand, so wear seem to be a problem. That’s where power q s really shines. G

They are crap and tangle quickly. People been saying it for years but they never listen.

Just fly your kites on an ozone bar no matter what brand like I do. Flies bandits souls ozones and core kites better than the brand bars and as the handle is a nice thickness you get little vibration passed through the bar unlike some of these skinny ones like the core and others knock out, which give you tennis elbow after a couple hours use!

Can someone tell me that is diameter/size needed of tool to unscrew these tiny north 2015 bar bolts? Tried 3, 2,5, 2 and 1,5 mm tools, not going. Seems that its about 2.25 milimeter tool needed.

Try some Torx, they often fit into the hex. Same with the old North stopper ball

This is so old story.. North [do not]trust bar is a long (10 years at least) dated bar design with same dated crap lines. Flapping safety line, no untwist, line coating is gone after 3 sessions. Its almost like a greedy scam. They made shitloads of money with that bar alone. Imagine no R&D and the cheapest available materials running for like 10 good years ?

you nearly got it.
Use US hex (inch based)
Try fin mount hex for fcs1 or 2 fins. It matches.
Should be 3/32" hex Alan key
