Maybe a bit more of a description would help?
The one that comes to mind for me is infection, it is the one that attaches to your harness not bar.

Custom would be a pin attached to a PVC pipe with a rubber band and some dynema and 3 rings.
I haven't done it but I have thought about it, even changing the depower for knots.
I have to do it.

I’m looking at custom bar options and keen to get your thoughts on a few things. The KISS bar mentioned above has no trim adjustment and no flagging safety line. While I can see this logic and it makes the build a lot simpler I’m not prepared to go down this path.

Re the trim system what are your thoughts on trimming on outside/steering lines rather than centre line. I appreciate this means you’ve got to make two adjustments to keep lines even but it keeps all this clear from the centerline and the safety system. Thanks
