Thank you for the link, Bracuru!

Thanks, I got that one. Yet, my intent - without explicitly - stating it, would be to get traditionally the both mainlines through the hole and attach one of them to a leash for flag out. The bar in the video (thanks) looks ingenious as a BRM variation. No worries, I will make sure not to get that sort of runaway love... :D

I pull a dyneema line in the area of your red ball. It's not easy as with the ball but it's fine for my purposes.

Prusik loop or just grab between lines with fingers?

I grab between lines with fingers to repower. Please note I have used no trim bars last season or two. I don't need it in every day riding.
Prusik loop could be working fine (haven't tested yet) but for sure a ball placed in the trimming loop is recommendable for those who use it often.
