Another approach in bar building. Made 3 of them using airex, CF and epoxy. Each one weighs 95-98g. Cant brake it over my knee. Have not tried with a kite yet but pretty shure it will do the job. Will be used with peaks4 on hydrofoil.
kudos

very nice!

Which kind of hard inserts did you use for back lines?

Bar is trimless, its just a rope for release testing. Inserts for back lines are stainless steel tubes.

How did you lock the inserts to the bar?

Made epoxy plugs in airex. When bar was finished i drilled holes trough them and inserted tubes using epoxy. I dont think tt its a good idea, but time Will tell. 2 other bars Will be made using another bar end types. It is a kind of experiment.

I have it but just O shit leash attachment point for front lines. Without leash. I never used it and for HF power size it is not needed. Kite is perfectly safe without. You can always crash it and made it unrestartable in water.

For snowkiting you need it.

How did you make the center hole, I mean which material you used?
