North Clickbar's front and back line lengths (when replacing lines)?

Postby omg » Tue Jan 01, 2019 6:20 pm

I want to replace my 2018 Clickbar's lines, but does anyone know the line lenths, please? I mean without the extensions for both back and front lines, there was no info on Duotone's site nor at their shop. I know I can measure them, but if anyone happens to know the lengths that would be great!

Thanks and good winds!

It's not that simple, front lines are many meters shorter, I have just replaced mine with power Q lines, so simple as lines do not need any sort of sleeving, just cut and tie off, many times stronger, so simple.
Not cheap!

That sucks! Life is too short for proprietary solutions. Good reason to not buy

Did you replace all the lines including the leaders?

I tried to get North to tell me the line lengths but I could never get an answer.

But note, it doesn’t matter. Because all of the lines have changed, including the leader lines. So if you had lines made to the original length, it wont go back to the new configuration of front and back lines of the same length at full power.

So you either buy a whole set of new lines and leader lines or you have some custom lines made.

That's nice, but both front or back lines are not available, and I wouldn't want to buy them due to quality issues reported.
It seems there's no other way but to measure them. Back lines could be around 20m and front 16m perhaps...?

Q-Power Pro sounds interesting, where did you buy them from, please?

Changed, compared to what?

These are the lengths and prices of the replacement sets I offer, measured on a 2018 Click bar ex 2m extensions and 25cm pigtails:

2x11.45m powerlines sk99 500: €37.20
2x19.75m steering lines sk99 300: €41.60
