If you remove it then there is nothing left for your leash to connect to, at least I can't find any instructions on connecting the line to one of the centre or backlines.
Am I correct?
Was out today on the 5m in 13-15 knots, when it got fickle I changed to my Hyperlink 9m
But had a blast on the 5 practicing foot switches. Thought it would be easier strapless but it was harder for me!
I do yes, use the connect bar on the small ones 3,4,5 and without the b-safe, and a bar with 27 m lines on the 8 m2.
I dont have a leash on any of my other hydrofoil bars (but of course on bars for TT and Waves etc)
But always connect my leash either to the CL, if I accidentally get the loop twisted free, or on the connect bar, to the sprocket just above the orange push away plastic, so i can not release accidentally.
And when using a Wichard, I put the leash just above the Wichard, again so I have a chance to recover if accidentally releasing the Wichard.
And of course, if "dangerous" condtions, I put it on the CL, or on the hook, so I can release fully if needed.
